Stash launches eight new loose leaf teas with Guayusa

Stash Tea has introduced eight loose leaf teas that are naturally caffeinated with guayusa, a stimulating herb native to the Amazon rain forest in Ecuador.

The tea has been traditionally enjoyed by indigenous families of the South American country and highly regarded for its balance of caffeine, antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids. Shade-grown, guayusa is naturally caffeinated and has an energizing effect similar to coffee or yerba mate, but releases caffeine more slowly preventing jitters or sudden caffeine crashes. It has a naturally smooth taste, is never bitter, and has an earthy aroma and slightly sweet finish.

The purchase of Guayusa supports small farmers in Ecuador and helps the Amazon Rainforest thrive since the herb is shade grown.

Coincidentally Guayusa also happens to be quite delicious. It has a naturally smooth taste, is never bitter, and has a rich and earthy aroma and slightly sweet finish.

Stash’s line of Guyausa teas include: Pure Guayusa Loose Leaf Tea, Guayusa and Green Tea, Guayusa and Chocolate Tea, Guayusa and Chai Tea, Guayusa and Ginseng Oolong Tea, Guayusa and Yerba Mate, Guayusa and Black Tea and Guayusa and Rooibos Tea.
