Guayusa (gwhy-you-sa) is a stimulating herb produced from the leaves of a holly tree native to the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador. Part of the indigenous culture for over 2000 years, Guayusa is delicious, with a naturally smooth taste that is never bitter. It has a rich and earthy aroma and a slightly sweet finish.

Guayusa is also naturally caffeinated and has an awakening effect similar to that of coffee and yerba mate, but provides a slow caffeine release without the jitters or sudden crash. And as Guayusa is shade-grown, it helps the Amazon Rainforest thrive, and helps small farms in Ecuador.
