Preparation

Suggested brewing styles:

We recommend using 2 tablespoons (approx. 6 grams) or more of finely ground Guayusa leaves per 8 oz. of water which can be prepared using the follow methods:

Tea Pot – Add crushed leaves to water. Boil for a few minutes and steep

Drip coffee maker- Grind Guayusa leaves and prepare as you would normally brew your favorite coffee

French Press- Grind Guayusa leaves and prepare as you would normally brew your favorite coffee or tea

Sun Tea – Add ground or whole Guayusa leaves to water in a large glass container and leave in the sun for 4 – 6 hours. Serve hot or cold with lemon or honey

Coconut Sweet Tea- Prepare some brewed tea following one of the recommended methods. Strain the leaves out of the tea, put the tea in a blender with a tablespoon or two of coconut butter, oil or milk. Add some brown sugar, coconut sugar or honey. Blend thoroughly until frothy. This is has been a favorite treat among many Guayusa drinkers
