The bushy perennial can easily reach 2 meters in diameter and half to 1.5 meters. The culm leaves are packed with essential oils that give off the well-known citrus smell. The scent is clearly perceptible just by walking past without touching a leaf. It differs from that of a lemon but has similarities. We describe it as citrusy. It is reminiscent of a sauna infusion or mosquito candles. The smell of lemongrass is anything but pleasant for mosquitoes. When brewed in the tea, a fresh, gentle citrus taste is created that harmonises very well with the herbal note of guayusa. A slight sweetness also resonates in the first few minutes of the brewing time. The longer the brewing time, the lower this grade becomes.

As with most natural remedies, no specific health statement can be made about lemongrass. Nevertheless, there are some exciting studies that indicate that lemongrass counteracts high blood pressure, infections, headaches, abdominal pain, fever and infections. There are over 50 different varieties, of which 2 in particular are used in Ecuador. One is described as having a calming effect and the other as energizing. For our Guayusa tea with lemongrass we have therefore of course chosen the invigorating


The lemon grade oil and the plant itself contain a lot of vitamin A or provitamin A (β-carotene), flavonoids, antioxidants, terpenes and phenols.Vitamin A is an important building block for our body in the formation and development of cells and tissues.

Our goal is to gradually combine more and more plants from the forest gardens with Guayusa to create a stable income for the farmers and to support our reforestation projects. The taste of both plants harmonize perfectly. It's not too penetrating a citrus taste that often predominates in aromatic teas, but a gentle, refreshing one. Both plants have an invigorating effect. Our "Lemongrass" variety is therefore perfect as an energizing companion for your day. The mixing ratio between guayusa and lemongrass is very balanced, which means that the variety is about half as intense as PURE.
