Guayusa Fuel Cells

This has become one of our favorite things lately when we don’t have the time to sit down and enjoy a pot of tea. We just throw two of Runa’s Guayusa spice satchets (whatever, they’re good) into each libre glass and add boiling water. It only takes 2 minutes to steep, and you can take it anywhere. When the highly-caffeinated travel pouches of guayusa meet the highly-portable Libre glass, it’s a magical thing.

    • Oh, we love this stuff! It’s guayusa (a highly-caffeinated and mellow amazonian plant) blended with lemongrass and cinnamon. I should say, “Blended perfectly with lemongrass and cinnamon”. The guayusa has a really mellow, vegetal flavor, and it’s just great with the spicy taste that comes from the big cinnamon chunks in the mix. The lemongrass has a lighter presence here, and it gives it a fresh aftertaste with a little zing. We try a lot of different teas and infusions on our show, but very seldom do we turn around and buy a big bag of it as we did with Guayusa Spice!

      You can see us tasting Guayusa Spice for the first time here: http://healthyprofessionals.teatra.de/2011/07/07/the-tea-show-episode-19-runas-guayusa-spice/

      The 75-count travel infusers in a pouch for $22.50 – Tax Free, Certified Organic, Certified Kosher, and Free Trade is an awesome deal and hard to argue with.

  1. WOW! this is awesome. I am so excited to try this out. Guayusa spice is my favorite of the Runa’s blends. This fuel cell will be great for work in the winter. Since guayusa has no tannins, the leaves never produce an astringent bitter flavor. The tea bags can be left for hours and the brew is always smooth. Plus, tt’s a delicious herbal tea with twice the caffeine as a black tea. 🙂

  2. I love these containers! This is definitely going on the gift idea list for the holiday season, and so is the tea. Gotta love highly-caffeinated teas; I always try to think of something to replace morning coffee (not because of the caffeine; mostly to see if it can even be done) and I think if I found a tea with enough caffeine, that would do it.

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Cheers,
    Tia
