drank Rainforest Mint Guayusa by Runa
47 tasting notes

This was a gift…from me to my husband, but extreme fatigue had me reaching for it in desperation today. Delicious earthy flavor, mild, slightly sweet; the mint is fresh tasting. I added a squeeze of lemon, and a few drops of NuNaturals stevia (for some reason, I love when mint teas are just a little sweet and lemony.) Really tasty! And, I got no jittery, unpleasant feeling, the way I do from coffee. Hmmm, might be reaching into my husband’s guayusa again soon!

I adore guayusa, it’s so refreshing and the caffeine affects me quite differently than coffee.

Alphakitty: You are so right: hours later and NO crash, unlike my memories of coffee, and even black tea at times. I’m wondering how guayusa tastes as a chai masala…

Helena

if you want a lemony guayusa you should try Butiki Tea’s Good Morning Sunshine :D

Alphakitty

I second Butiki for guayusa! They sell a pure one as well that you could mix up your own chai blend. Maybe with Verdant’s chai spices… now I want to place more tea orders! ^^;

Thank you, Helena and Alphakitty! Perfectly lovely suggestions for my wish list!

Bio

Although I can be heard to mutter “Dust! Fannings and dust!” when drinking a poor cup of tea, I really don’t think I’m a tea snob. Want to talk about your favorite tisane with jelly beans in it? I’m there. Want to talk about gyokuro and assam? Done. I welcome the chance to discuss all things tea and tea related because I’m that kind of nerd: a tea nerd. Other things I’m passionate about: my family: my husband and daughter and our Chihuahua and new cat; literature, and social justice. I have poor eyesight, a good temperament, an odd sense of humor and a lot of curiosity.
