Runa Focused Energy Unsweetened Guava Guayusa Tea

Runa Focused Energy Unsweetened Guava Guayusa Tea

I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I will say it again; guavas have never let me down. From juices, to teas, to the actual fruit I like everything I have ever tried that it was involved with. I even like the Ween album “Pure Guava.” It’s the magical fruit that can do no wrong.

In that same regard it seems that Runa is a tea company that can also do no harm. I’ve tried a couple of the products and have been impressed by all of them. I want more companies to use guayusa as their tea of choice. It has a more interesting flavor, and as much as I don’t want to admit it, I’ve grown bored of black tea. Yerba mate and guayusa are now my teas of choice. It also helps that they have a decent amount of caffeine in them, as I never want to drink coffee, unless it’s made up all nice and fancy, and I try to drink energy drinks very sparingly, as I don’t want to have heart problems in the future, and there’s a lot of unnatural chemical junk in them.

The thing I love the most about Runa and this tea is that they weren’t afraid to forgo a sweetener. The tea alone would be great unsweetened, but adding the guava makes this perfect. It’s fruity enough that it has it’s own quasi sweetness. It also perfectly balances with the guayusa, so neither flavor overpowers the other. There is a Ying and Yang thing going on with this tea of two great flavors that can also live in perfect harmony together.
