WOWZA! This is HOT HOT HOT! WHOA!

It smells like peas, cinnamon, and hot peppers. It tastes like Pepper, hot chili peppers, and fireballs!

BUT…you know what? I like it…it’s different especially for a Guayusa and I think this would be a great assist for those with scratchy throats! I might try cooking with this…white rice sounds like it would fit!

This review made me laugh. My husband and I do spicy foods to the extreme. At this point we both really have no idea what is considered hot. We thought this was a very mild spicy. I had even contemplated making it a bit spicier. It is fantastic for stuffed sinuses but I don’t recommend deeply smelling the dried leaves unless you want to be sneezing & crying. I’ve been drinking it nonstop since my allergies are pretty rough right now. I love it with a little bit of sugar since it tastes like a red hot candy. If you end up cooking with it let me know, I’d love use this tea in a recipe.

This sounds mighty interesting. I have a dessert wine called hot cin that sounds like this tea but in wine form, minus the peas. Might have to crack that open tonight!

Stacy – I LOVE hot foods! With tea I usually do a double shot (twice the loose leaf) with this one – it isn’t needed! LOL This is bold and buff the way it is!!!

Bold and buff, ha ha. I love it. I’m drinking some winter fire guayusa right now. I really am digging guayusa it really does keeps me focused. Btw, rereading your post about cooking with tea for some reason just gave me a new idea for a new blend.

A new blend??? YAY! Sooooo exciting! :)

So, I’m not sure if this would work but I was thinking a tangerine genmaicha with goji berries and sunflower seeds. I was thinking about making my favorite cereal (I make my own cereals sometimes, I know that sounds weird) when I was reading your post and the word “cooking” made me think, hey this cereal could be a good tea. Sometimes one word just triggers a new idea for tea.

Certainly something I would try! :) Sounds neat!
