This tea tastes a bit like a 5 star green with lemon tea without any bitterness, sourness, or surprise “bite” at the end. Neither the green nor the lemongrass predominate in flavor: it's a perfect blend. There’s a slight hint of cinnamon, and there's a bit of astringency that I enjoy. Definitely has caffeine. I have not needed to sweeten this, which I do for most teas. I usually drink black tea. Guayusa stands alone as a great tea: not green, not mate, not black, not lemon: Just right.

This is a daily drinker. I was initially drawn to it because of its history and tradition. The lemongrass is subtle but refreshing. Cinnamon balances its astringent aftertaste. It undoubtedly fosters mental focus. That is not to say that it is not agreeable in the evening hours. I have even had it on a couple of occasions around bedtime and found it to be relaxing. This is my first Guayusa and will certainly not be my last.

I originally bought the Guayusa herbal tea as a Secret Santa gift for one of my college hall mates - now, since he's a sharer, it's the suite's favorite!

This is easily becoming a coffee replacement for me. I love the taste of it, I love the affect of it, and mixing it with the Chai spice blend adds an even more amazing taste. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice mellow pick me up tea!
