Clean Energy

Thanks to its slower-releasing effect, guayusa doesn’t spike your adrenaline the way coffee or energy drinks can. This means you get a uniquely focused and sustained energy, without the jitters or crash of other caffeine sources.

Mission-Driven

We source our organic guayusa from smallholder farmers in the Ecuadorian Amazon who use indigenous farming methods to grow guayusa in a way that protects the rainforest while allowing them to earn above Fairtrade rates.

The True
Super Leaf

Pronounced “why-you-sa” (yep, the g is silent), guayusa is the caffeinated leaf of a holly tree found almost exclusively in the Amazon rainforests of Ecuador. Revered for centuries by indigenous peoples in the region, this special leaf combines a deliciously smooth taste with the health benefits of green tea and the energising effect of coffee (minus the jitters and crash!)

Work. Study. Move. Create.

Thanks to its slow-release effect, a cup of guayusa tea is the perfect side-kick to a marathon study session, a long day at the office, an intense workout at the gym, or for getting in the creative flow. 

Steeped in History

Although the guayusa leaf has only been discovered outside of the Amazon in the last decade, it has been brewed by Ecuador’s indigenous communities for centuries. Each morning before sunrise, they gather as a community and drink gourds of freshly brewed guayusa, to start their day with energy and focus.
