✓ 100% NATURAL GUAYUSA | Our blend guayusa cacao is made with GUAYUSA loose leaf + Shell of cocoa bean with Roasted cocoa nibs | Our loose leaf is unique in that it is sifted so that it does not contain dust. This, along with the cut we have chosen for our loose leaf, makes it ideal for a clean, nutrient-packed brew. Since it does not contain dust, it may take a little longer to steep (a couple of extra minutes) depending on the strength of flavor you prefer.

✓ ALTERNATIVE TO YERBA MATE - COFFEE | Guayusa provides you with a rejuvenating burst of energy, different from coffee or other caffeinated teas.

✓ NO JITTERS NO CRASH | NO Tannins - Astringent FREE. Each leaf contains caffeine, Double antioxidants of green tea, and amino acids, which contribute to its nutritional value.
