Runa Tea Traditional Guayusa

Country of Origin: Ecuador
Leaf Appearance: small, dark green
Steep time: 5 minutes
Water Temperature: 212 degrees
Liquor: dark gold
Ingredients: Guayusa

This herbal tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag. The flavor was mildly meaty and nutty with just a bit of sweetness. Many herbal teas are vegetal and bitter but this one is actually quite pleasant. Guayusa has become popular because of its high caffeine content. I didn’t feel a jolt of energy but I did feel more alert after a long day at work. I would definitely recommend this tea.
