Jungle fever

We are seriously passionate about guayusa around here, and we couldn’t be more excited to spread the word. Not only does it pack an incredible burst of energy, it’s also deliciously smooth, never bitter and lightly sweet. Plus it’s steeped in over 2000 years of Amazonian tradition and legend. To learn more about this wonder-herb, a bunch of the DAVIDsTEA staff went down to Ecuador to check out the guayusa farms, meet the workers and even harvest leaves for tea. Who knows – one of us might have even plucked this very batch.

Ingredients: Fair Trade Certified Organic Guayusa from Ecuador.

I wanted to try a “mate” style tea since I’ve never really tried them before. I know that technically Guayusa isn’t mate but same family/geographical area.

Tasted really nice. I really liked the flavour of it, grassy and natural. It was naturally sweet but not too sweet. The only problem that I’ve had with this is the sediment in it. It made for a weird mouth feel, like gritty style.

I will probably diversify and buy another mate variety next time to see if I like any others.

This smells… weird, to be frank. It borders on floral but not in a way that makes your brain go, “Oh alright, we’re drinking flowers now… why?” (Floral tea is a humongous no-no for me. The most eloquent way I can describe how much I dislike flowers in my tea is “Ewugh ew yuck eugh eugh eugh gross.”) It’s more along the vein of your favorite person’s favorite perfume, you know, the way that it smells on them is a good smell although on its own you probably wouldn’t touch it with a million-yard stick. That with the addition of sun-warmed grass after a rainstorm is the sort of aroma I’m getting from this tea. If you can’t dig the grassy/plant notes then this probably isn’t your cuppa, however I personally feel this gives it a wonderful refreshing quality.

I tried Guayusa on a trip in Ecuador back in 2008. I loved it. The DT one seems to be completely different. I do not find it especially energizing, and the taste is bitter (tastes like dirt to me). I did not enjoy it, and won’t be trying it again.

mmm steeped hot right in my guayusa gourd and sipped through my new metal bombilla! great for energy and the taste is not to bad. I keep adding more hot water as I sip and it cools down.

Tastes good, but I got bored of my cup quickly. Gives a huge boost!
