Guayusa with Peppermint | 20 Biodegradable Tea Pyramids
We call this our refreshing blend. Organic guayusa is blended with organic Egyptian peppermint to create an infusion that is at once refreshing and energising. This blend is also great for creating an iced tea - simply brew as normal and then add ice, a squeeze of lime, and a spoon of honey.
All of our blends are organic-certified and made with sustainably sourced, natural ingredients, without any artificial flavourings or extracts.
Our Hero Ingredient: Guayusa
Guayusa ("gwhy-yoo-sa") is a naturally energizing leaf from the Amazon that offers a healthier alternative to coffee and energy drinks. For centuries, the Kichwa people of the Ecuadorian Amazon have begun their days by gathering as a community to drink guayusa as the sun rises.
At Nú Infusions, we source the highest quality organic-certified guayusa from smallholder farmers in the Ecuadorian Amazon, who are paid 15% above the Fairtrade price for their produce. These farmers use indigenous farming systems, known as chacras, in which multiple crops are grown together in a way that imitates and supports the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Amazon region.
As such, with each purchase of our teas, you are not only contributing to the livelihoods of local populations, but also to the reforestation of the Amazon region and the demonstration of more sustainable forms of rainforest agriculture.
