What is Guayusa?

Waisamama - Our Story


Guayusa is one of three caffeinated trees in the Holly family that grows primarily in the Ecuadorian region of the Amazon rainforest. Its leaves have been brewed like tea and ceremoniously consumed for their highly uplifting and rejuvenating properties by the Kichwa tribe for at least 1500 years.

How Guayusa Helps You Get In the Flow

Caffeine + Theobromine + L-theanine

Guayusa contains some of the highest concentrations of caffeine of any plant in the world.

Slow Digesting Enzymes

Long-lasting energy that doesn’t crash

Antioxidants + Vitamins

Chlorogenic acids, polyphenols, theobromine, l-theanine and a plethora of other hard to pronounce natural compounds all add to guayusa’s unique and revitalizing biochemical composition.

The Meaning Of Waísamama

The Kichwa people of the Amazon rainforest refer to guayusa as Waísamama, a word synonymous with the powerful energy within rivers that run crystal clear. It is believed that by drinking guayusa and bathing in the river at dawn, one can cultivate Waísamama, giving them long-lasting vitality throughout the day.
