This is my first experience with Guayusa, thanks to JustJames for sending me this in our recent swap.
I don’t normally read tasting notes before I drink my tea, but I was curious about what others thought of guayusa before I tried it because I’ve only recently heard of it. It seems like there are a lot of people on the fence about the taste, but I ended up really enjoying it. I love the way the subtle sweet apricot flavor works with the earthy taste of the guayusa. It is a genuine apricot flavor too, something that I’ve found is very difficult to find in a tea. I could see myself drinking a lot of this especially on the mornings when I’m dragging. The only problem is that after only a few sips it triggered a severe migraine, which is a shame, because I really loved the flavor and could see myself drinking this a lot. I’ll have to try it again another day and see what happens.
