Fives Stars, Plus: How to get more from your tea leaves.
October 15, 2017
This tea is a blessing. To get the most out of your tea, soak one flat tablespoon of leaves overnight in a cup of water, in a mason jar or something like that, in the refrigerator. In the morning, pour that cold-steeped tea into a pan and heat it just to steaming, then pour it through one of those one-cup coffee strainers you can perch atop your mug. After you use up this first round of tea, you can wash the leaves from the strainer back into the pan, add a cup or two of water, and boil the leaves briefly. Then that's your second round of tea. You can keep reusing the leaves in this manner, and the tea will continue to be dark and rich. Really amazing, actually. A good value, and it seems that these guayusa plants can be grown in the shade of the rainforest, and it seems that indigenous people can make a good living growing this tea. The aroma is reminiscent of fine perfume and late afternoon blossoms in the summer. The flavor is so delightful you really do not need a sweetener.
