Ancient tradition

Indigenous Kichwa of the amazon wake up very early in the morning, before sunrise, and they all gather together in community. They share a “pilche” cup filled with Guayusa as they plan the activities for the day ahead and share the dreams they had the night before.

How to prepare it?

If you drink Waykana using our tea bags, pour hot water over the tea bag and let it steep for 7 minutes. If you like a stronger infusion wait a few more minutes. Waykana tea bags, with its jaguar power, also infuse in cold water.

If you prefer to drink it in an ancestral way, use our loose leaf. In a cup add a full spoon of Waykana Guayusa , then pour boiling water . Let it steep for 7 minutes and sift before serving. You can also infuse it using a clean coffee machine or with an infuser. Let it cool down to try it as iced tea.
