Today I decided to try mixing 1 tsp of this with 1 tsp of cocomint cream, as I saw that jessiwrites did this last week or so with excellent results. And I must say, this is really awesome! It produces just the right flavor that cocomint cream needed to not be as sugary sweet, instead, it is fresher and i much prefer it. I’m going to have to mix guayusa with a few more uncaffeinated teas! :)

I have some guayasa from another company and am kind of dragging my heels on trying it…I’m kind of intimidated by the caffeine content :O

I’d try mixing it with something first if you are apprehensive, although I find it doesn’t actually bother me much at all, and i am pretty sensitive to it. I find Yerba mate much stronger, guayusa is a nice cozy awake feeling :)

I love guayusa! And this is such a great combination. If you have any Copabanana, it is also quite amazing. Or Santa’s Secret, but that’s a lot of caffeine. :P

MissLena

I’ll maybe try it, I have a peanut allergy so I’m a bit leery to try almonds but id love to! I also want to try guayusa with rooibos at some point

I’ve mixed guayusa with Della Terra’s Lemon Lime Cream Tart, and it was lovely.

MissLena

I’ll definitely have to try that, I have both of those :D

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock

-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.
