On a meditative fall morning, there is nothing better than to haul out a big bag of pears, fresh-picked from the backyard or the overly prolific tree down the street, and wash, peel, core and chop them for an entire vat of pear sauce. Or, sometimes even more gratifying, to press them into cider or turn them into a delicious pie or crumble. If you’re the type of person who delights in this sometimes humble fruit, then our organic Fujian Pear tea is sure to be a hit.Read More
Native to the Amazon rainforest, Guayusa (pronounced by locals as Wayusa) is a caffeinated plant that is known for it's stimulating properties. Like green tea, guayusa contains L-theanine and is a great source of antioxidants. It is also seen to aid in digestion and to supress appetite. It contains more caffeine than black tea does, but less than coffee.
The flavour of Shanti Tea's guayusa is woodsy and slightly citrusy. It makes a great replacement for coffee, it offers similar stimulation without the jitters left behind from coffee consumption.
