Just found a sample of this tea, and decided I’d give it a go. It was my first experience with guayusa and it was wonderful!! The color of the liquid was dark brown. The nose is mildly sweet and spicy, and the taste is earthy and herbal, but not heavy. There’s lots of ingredients in this tea, and they blend together perfectly. So sad that DavidsTea discontinued it! But, at least they have other Guayusa blends. Looking forward to trying some of those.
