Guayusa Herb formerly Qat Tea Ilex guayusa
This certified Kosher herb, known as stimulating Amazon tea, is used by the Tappipiscu and Qechua tribes to enhance energy and metabolism. It provides long-lasting energy and alertness. Said to increase sexual potency, it is also used to enhance dreams. The presence of guanadine can lower blood sugar levels, thus making it popular with diabetics(1). Small amounts can be highly stimulating for most people.
Guayusa is a tree that grows under the canopy of the Amazon Rainforest in the regions of Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia. Once wild grown, this species is now thought of as a cultivated plant. The botanical cousin of Yerba Mate, the leaves of the Guayusa tree contain natural caffeine as well as theobromine (commonly found in chocolate) and L-theanine (an amino acid found in green tea recognized to reduce physical and mental stress).
Dating back over 2,000 years, Guayusa has been used by indigenous families in the Amazon Rainforest for several purposes. Traditionally some tribes would rise early and talk over a fire while sipping Guayusa. Dreams would be interpreted and stories would be told. Hunters would drink before a night hunt to heighten their awareness earning Guayusa the nickname "The Night Watchman" by the Jivaro tribe.
Containing no tannins, Guayusa does not have the bitter taste associated with many caffeinated teas. It has a smooth taste and provides balanced energy without the crash associated with most energy drinks.
Suggested Use: Guayusa is a full spectrum botanical tea that can be extracted in heated water. Add one teaspoon of dried herb to 16 fl. oz. of boiling water for 2 servings. Stir in herbs and remove from heat. Allow to steep until fully colored and flavored with the essence of the herb (at least 5 minutes). Strain and sweeten if desired. Serve warm or allow to cool and store in the refrigerator.
Caution: Use under care or advice of a medical practitioner. Not intended for long-term therapy.
Contraindications: May lower blood sugar levels.
Third Party Testing is performed on all herbs to ensure the highest quality available.

The HERBS AMERICA COMPANY and MACA MAGIC were founded by Jerome River Black. He was the first to cultivate and distribute live maca root plants in the USA and began germplasm collections and cultivar selection of maca in the Peruvian Altiplano in 1994. In addition to his studies of maca in the Peruvian highlands, Jerome is a published ethnobotanist with a myriad of expertise and an extensive history of working within a variety of botanical experiences. He has explored remote rivers, lakes, and forests in dozens of exotic countries, his travels having taken him to the depths of steamy jungles and the tops of 20 thousand foot mountains...
He is the award winner of the Natural Foods Institute "Best New Plants" Award and the subject of numerous articles about plant exploration. He regularly lectures and teaches others about new and rare foodcrop development. Jerry currently resides with his family in the lovely rural area of Murphy, Oregon, surrounded by acres of land containing thousands of varrieties of rare plants from around the world.
Over the course of nearly 20 years, HERBS AMERICA'S founders have used USDA agriculture and agro forestry permits to develop more than 400 rare fruits and new superfoods for introduction into the farming sector and natural foods market. To accomplish this HERBS AMERICA works directly with botanists, tribal leaders, universities, and laboratories to cultivate and research traditional medicines which are found to be beneficial for both humans and the land. Our goal is to bring equitability to small farming operations in developing countries and support indigenous populations in their efforts of preserving culture and environment while at the same time supporting agrarian economies. Working in more than thirty countries around the world, the company donates and exports fruit trees and vegetable seeds to dozens of farmers in countries on several continents.
Our long term philosopy commits us to our product lines long after they leave the farms and jungles. We like to say: "Eat well! Think well! Live close to nature and work for the good of the community!" We believe that traditional wisdom and modern science can combine important resources for a long term vision of biological health. We are adamant in our support of indigenous land rights and sustainable agriculture. A portion of our company's annual budget is designated to help protect natural heritage through conservation projects.
