Using Guayusa tea correctly - correct use of Guayusa

G uayusa differs not only in its effect from other caffeinated drinks such as coffee, mate or green tea - but also in how and when guayusa should be drunk. The full potential of Guayusa tea unfolds if you pay attention to the following tips.

Proper Preparation of Guayusa

The Guayusa leaves are packed with valuable ingredients. So that these go perfectly into the water, it is advisable not to use tea bags, but to use a tea strainer, a tea egg or a teapot.

Option 1: The guayusa leaves should steep for at least 5-15 minutes when you pour boiling water on them. It's best if you don't take out the sieve with the leaves, but leave it in the pot until you've finished drinking. In this way, even after 15 minutes, even more active ingredients are released.

Option 2: Pour cold tap water over the guayusa leaves and place in the fridge or other cool place for 6-12 hours. This cold extract is at least as effective as the first variant.

In general, it's best to use about 1-2 heaping teaspoons of leaves per 12 ounce cup. We recommend: 3 heaped teaspoons per pot with approx. 1L content.

In our blog section " Preparation and Recipes " you will find other options, also described in more detail.

The best time of day to drink guayusa

Guayusa is perfect for the morning routine. For the full development of its active ingredients, you should also drink the tea in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach or after a glass of water. We recommend: Drinking a cup to 1L Guayusa tea in the morning before the first meal. This is how the ingredients can best develop their effect.

You can easily prepare several cups throughout the day. Make sure that the effect does not start suddenly like with coffee, but is more subtle and even. It is best to always drink Guayusa tea before meals.
