Episode 158: Guayusa

I’ve heard a lot about guayusa, so I was very excited when I saw this at Zhi Tea in Austin! Guayusa is an Ecuadorian drink that packs as the same type of caffeinated kick as coffee, but also has a ton of health benefits like green tea. Like yerba maté, guayusa isn’t a “tea” per se; it’s a tisane.

The taste is very clean, with hints of parsley and pepper and a bit of sweetness. It’s great hot or iced (I had it both ways), and it won’t go bitter if you oversteep it. Sounds like a winner to me!

Episode 347: Beet Cabbage

I’ve really been kind of dreading trying this tea blend from Numi Organic Tea, but I’m going to soldier on and make it happen. This Beet Cabbage blend has a black tea and honeybush base and includes apple, mustard seed, parsley, orange, coriander, and clove.

Despite my disgust of both beets and cabbage, this blend is actually very true to its intended flavor profile. The brew is a gorgeous ruby color, and the apple and honeybush really bring out the sweetness of the beets. (The cabbage, of course, tastes like cabbage.) Dare I say that this is the truest to form of all of Numi Organic Tea’s savory teas?
