Teawolf announced that it is the first supplier of guayusa extracts in the United States. Guayusa is found only in the Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador. It is brewed like tea and has a clean, natural, well-defined flavor that is rich and sweet without any bitterness and with as much caffeine as coffee but twice the antioxidants of green tea, the company says. Teawolf, in collaboration with Runa LLC, will offer a range of commercially available, water-soluble, premium guayusa extracts in both liquid and powder formats. Manufacturers of teas, energy drinks, smoothies, enhanced still and sparkling waters, ice creams and sorbets can use Teawolf’s liquid guayusa for both flavor and color applications, while the dry powder format is ideal for instant drink mixes.
