Recent Tasting Notes


This is my absolute favorite tisane and my favorite company to get guayusa from, as I can order by the kilogram as whole leaf. The cherry on top being that it is fair trade from an Amazonian tribe this company works with. They first sent a sample of this tea to me as a gift and since then, it has been an everyday staple of mine for a quick pick-me-up tisane. This tea is a light golden color and has virtually no tannins -meaning that it won’t stain your teeth. It also has a light taste with a strong punch of caffeine and l-theanine, that seems to last for much longer than a tea or coffee buzz. Another interesting fact is that it contains theobromine, just like chocolate, making it great for blood flow. I absolutely love how calm, focused but energetic I feel on this tisane and it never causes me to feel jittery. I tried sourcing this tea from another place, though they only had it shredded and I felt it didn’t taste or hit me as well as this whole leaf provider. I used to share this with the night crew I worked with and all of them loved it as much as I do. Although its rich in caffeine and other beneficial compounds, I can still sleep soundly after drinking this. A very good tisane for circulation and a calm energy.

using mineral water might take care of teeth staining, in relation to shredded/ leaf, i found it makes a difference when you boil some from cold on ultra low heat

That is something I will have to try, thanks Sierge! I found this recipe on empiricaltea.com for water recipes and I also want to take a stab at that when I get the time. It supposedly is formulated for tea drinking, one is called “simple syrup” and the other is called “Truth Serum”
