157 Tasting Notes
This is an underrated tea.
Steeped with a bit of raw local honey that hadn’t crystallized yet. Mmm. Green rooibos is a lot more approachable than oxidized red, it’s a more gentle creamy taste that’s kind of unexplainable until you try it. It’s hearty, smooth, fruity and devoid of bitterness. It may be 200% more potent in antioxidant and flavinoid properties than red rooibos. It’s great for your skin and low in tannins. And it’s cheap! So try this!

Alright. Drinking this before bed to test out the dream claims…
“Most people report vivid, cohesive, realistic dreams the night after drinking it. Guayusa Tea is also used as an admixture in the Sacred Ayahuasca Brew to improve the taste and give the user energy and confidence.”
“The Kichwa people claim that guayusa induces dreams that foretell whether hunting expeditions will be successful.”
“It also has the interesting effect of inducing lucid dreaming. For this reason, it is known as the “watchman’s plant”, as even when sleeping you are aware of your external surroundings. For those interested in shamanic dreaming this is certainly the plant to explore."
It’s also suppose to be an aphrodisiac.
Well, this should be an interesting night… I already have insanely crazy, vivid dreams every night that I can always recall… and I’ve easily lucid dreamed since I was a little girl… so my brain just might explode.
Sweet dreams ;)
Edit. the next morning
I woke up and laid in bed for half an hour scared this morning trying to figure out if one of the dreams I had was real. It was dream within a dream type of stuff. I knew I was dreaming, yet I didn’t. It was really weird. It did seem to help me face things in my mind and give me some good insight, though. Very interesting.
I purchased this just for the health benefits, and I love that it’s organic. I had no idea it’d be so good! The first thing I noticed was while it was steeping it smelled so creamy! Like steamed milk. Also a hint of buttery green tea. Interesting!
Amazing on it’s own. Same creamy taste as the aroma! (Had no idea rooibos could be so creamy..) But then I added a splash of coconut milk and sweetener, so good!! I love this. One of my new favs. Tastes great, amazing for you, and inexpensive. Awesome.
