From Ohio Tea Company

An Amazonian blend of energizing guayusa with full-bodied cinnamon and aromatic lemongrass. With more caffeine and double the antioxidants of any tea, guayusa offers clear, focused energy.

Extra Info:
Traditionally, indigenous families wake up together at dawn to drink guayusa. They sit around the communal fire drinking gourds full of guayusa until sunrise. During this time, the village elders teach the youth about ancestral myths, hunting techniques, social values, and about what it means to be ÒRunaÓ in the indigenous cosmovision. The guayusa ritual continues to be a cornerstone of Kichwa culture, a practice that brings the family and community together around the simple experience of drinking tea.

Ingredients:
Organic RUNA Guayusa, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Cinnamon,

This is a wonderful guayusa blend, and the one that introduced me to this particular plant. It has the perfect balance of flavors, and the grassy guayusa is complemented well by the lemongrass and cinnamon. This is one of my night time favorites, even with the caffeine content.
