So any of the blends I’ve had with guayusa have been really vanilla creamy (not buttery creamy like oolongs), so I was interested in tasting a straight guayusa just to see if they are that way.

This tastes very “green”- like fresh leaves or grass. It kind of hits you in the face like the scent of grass shavings or cut branches. It’s a deep flavor that really gets to the back of my throat and up my sinuses.

I didn’t taste much of the creaminess I was trying to find until it started to cool off and then it was just barely discernible. Maybe it’s just this particular guayusa? I’m interested to try more evenutally.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
