Ohio Tea Company, Guayusa Spice

Ohio Tea Company has done it again!!!  Another great tea!

Guayusa (Ilex guayusa) is a holly tree native to the Amazon rainforest. People have harvested this tree's leaves since ancient times due to their perceived health benefits, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties

"The flavor is similar to mate, but with a more plush, fruity flavor and a complete lack of bitterness. Tasting invites comparison to green tea, but the flavor is less tannic and the texture is more creamy (much more so than other herbal teas I've tried). ... You can brew guayusa like any other herbal tea."

"Guayusa tea is known as a healthy elixir thanks to its composition of a host of nutrients. Guayusa contains essential amino acids that improve mood and induce relaxation. This tea also has twice as many antioxidants as green tea. Antioxidants have been shown to boost cardiovascular health and the immune system."   https://www.cupandleaf.com/blog/guayusa-tea-benefits

Organic Guayusa, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Cinnamon

I think this is the first time I have had Guayusa tea....and I love it.  This tea has a nice light cinnamon note.  It is a great tea.  The lemongrass is super subtle, but it is there.  This tea is not bitter, it is creamy.I made three cups of tea out of 1 teaspoon. 
 I love that this Guayusa contains essential amino acids that improve mood and induce relaxation.  It has  more antioxidant properties than green tea.  Improves cardiovascular health, anti-inflammatory properties, and boosts the immune system too.
