Take a trip into the unknown with Guayusa, a naturally caffeine-rich herb from the jungles of the Amazon.
This blend is a study in contrast. Bright, citrusy, organic lemongrass is foiled with rich, enticing, organic cinnamon and earthy, green, organic Guayusa. Dry, Amazon Spice’s colors are like muted fall leaves, yet brewed its color is a honeyed, bright, golden-orange hue. The lingering aftertaste is both sweet and spiced. Lemongrass refreshes, cinnamon stabilizes and Guayusa enlivens. The result is a balanced blend that gratifies the palate and the body.
Pair this Guayusa blend with some of the foods of its homeland—fried plantains, jicima salad or grilled meats—or partner it with roasted sweet potatoes or honey-glazed ham.
