£5.95 inc VAT
Guayusa Tea (Ilex Guayusa) has been traditionally brewed in South American regions for more than 1,000 years.
Every single day, before dawn, members of the Kichwas tribe gather together around a communal fire and drink Guayusa (Guayusa Ilex, pronounced Gwhy-YOU-sa). Kichwas people believe it is important for the body to receive Guayusa first thing in the morning when they first wake up.
They then share the dreams that they’ve had during the night. Sitting around the fire, they then help each other to decode their dreams; this will guide them for the day ahead. They believe that dreams are related directly to their future, and so their workload is divided according. With the information received through the dream state, they can decide who will go to gather food that day, and who will stay close to their home.
The taste is something between mate and green tea, but it isn’t bitter as it’s low on tannins. This makes it sweet and is pleasant to drink.
Guayusa tea has an amazing ability to increase energy levels, clean the teeth, aid in weight loss. It’s low in calories and able to stimulate the metabolism.
Guayusa contains theobromine, which is also found in Cacao. Theobromine has been linked to protecting the blood vessels and arteries, which in turn, maintains overall cardiovascular health.
Unlike coffee and other teas, Guayusa won’t stain the teeth, it helps to boost oral health because of its antioxidant levels.
Guayusa tea contains polyphenolic compounds which can help to reduce oxidative stress and prevent the negative effects of free radicals, which can lead to chronic disease.
