I was in Whole foods the other day and they carry this so I thought I would give it a try. This is my first experience with Guayusa. I was a little bit pensive because straight Mate is a taste that I would say is aquired, but I’ll try just about anything once. My first thoughts are a little vegetal like green beans. The mint is very good. I could drink this daily. Of course now I want to educate myself on Guayusa, and try some others. This is great though!
