drank Guayusa Spice by Runa
22 tasting notes

A warm, subtle, and tasty blend. This is very tasty straight up. Very smooth and not overwhelmed by Cinnamon. My favorite part of this blend was the fact that the Cinnamon plant is the Shade cover for the Guayusa plant while in the rainforest. Gives a story to the tea, which makes tea way better. I feel a connection is made for a product be it tea, coffee, or a baseball mit. They all have reasons we love them. Sometimes taste in a hypercompetitive market is not the only reason people buy and enjoy. Some reasons we can not explain. I have been told by at least five people that I have given Guayusa that they love this blend iced. I have only brewed this tea hot, as I only review hot blends usually. Awesome Blend!

Shade Tree Mate is an exposure site and blog for Yerba Mate, and now a new Herbal Tea from Ecuador ‘Guayusa.’

My goal for the blog and site is to be a driving force in the industry where every aspect of Mate is covered. I love Mate, and it is my passion and I hope to spread the word, as well as inform and entertain.

I want to make Yerba Mate/Guayusa as nostalgic as Coffee is in consumers’ eyes.
