In this article I am going to introduce different guayusa tea loose leaf products. I will also tell you where to buy guayusa tea and what are the prices of the products.
Guayusa tea is a natural and energizing drink from South America. It is considered a cousin of yerba mate. It has high levels of antioxidants and it also contains minerals and vitamins as well as amino acids.
Guayusa is typically grown organically by small Ecuadorian family farms. Its taste lacks the bitterness of yerba mate and is often described as smooth and earthy. If you need some extra energy, guayusa tea is a good alternative for coffee. It contains caffeine, theobromine and theophylline and like yerba mate, it will increase your energy levels and mental focus!

Where to Buy Guayusa Tea?
Nowadays you can probably find guayusa tea in quite a few health shops. However, I recommend buying it from Amazon for a couple of reasons. Amazon usually gives you the best price and they can also ship to anywhere in the world. In addition, there are a lot of product reviews in Amazon that, so you can read them before buying the product.

RUNA guayusa tea is grown by indigenous Kichwa people. Kichwa say that when they drink guayusa they feel “RUNA” which means “fully alive” and this is where the company got its name. RUNA is USDA Organic and fair trade certified.
