As well as tasting delicious, one of the main benefits of guayusa is the extra energy that comes from the caffeine, especially considering it doesn’t come with the side effects like coffee, such as increased heart rate and jitters.
Our guayusa is much stronger than the teabags that are provided by other companies. Most bags that are available online in the UK come with 2 grams of guayusa. We take pride in our high-quality guayusa tea bags, which come with 5 grams of pure guayusa.
One 5 gram serving of guayusa that is brewed for 10 minutes will contain approximately 82 milligrams of caffeine. To compare this to other hot drinks, a cup of coffee comes with around 94 milligrams, and a tea has on average between 14 to 61 milligrams per serving. This means that our strong guayusa provides a similar amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee while you also enjoy the other benefits of guayusa, such as antioxidants and even whiter teeth.
Similar to tea or coffee, you can increase or decrease the strength of the drink by altering the brewing time of the tea. You can also purchase our loose leaf refill bag to use with a tea infuser to use a different amount of guayusa in your tea. One of the great things about guayusa is that it is almost impossible to over brew it, because it does not come with the bitterness that is associated with an over-brewed tea.
Using guayusa as an alternative to coffee
Guayusa is similar to coffee in that the energy and caffeine boost comes from plants and natural sources, rather than synthetic caffeine that is found in energy drinks.
However, if the same amount of caffeine is consumed via guayusa rather than coffee, it evokes a 6-7 times smaller adrenal response, which is why you can enjoy the energy hit without the commonly experienced anxiety from coffee.
