So any of the blends I’ve had with guayusa have been really vanilla creamy (not buttery creamy like oolongs), so I was interested in tasting a straight guayusa just to see if they are that way.
This tastes very “green”- like fresh leaves or grass. It kind of hits you in the face like the scent of grass shavings or cut branches. It’s a deep flavor that really gets to the back of my throat and up my sinuses.
I didn’t taste much of the creaminess I was trying to find until it started to cool off and then it was just barely discernible. Maybe it’s just this particular guayusa? I’m interested to try more evenutally.
