Benefits of Guayusa Over Yerba-Mate
What is Guayusa?
Guayusa (gwhy-you-suh) is actually not a 'tea' but for laypeople, it still is. It is found in the Ecuadorian part of Amazon Rainforests. It's considered a cousin of the famous yerba mate and is ingrained in Latin culture.
It has been called the Amazonian Superleaf and has high levels of Caffeine to give you the 'Jaguar' power. This leaf is derived from a holy tree to the Khichwa tribe of Amazon Rainforests and has historical roots into the culture of the tribe.
Guayusa does not have tannins therefore it's not bitter at all. Guayusa gives you the benefit of Coffee and Yerba Mate with a clean and sweet taste without the jitters of coffee.
