Guarana seed

Guarana (Paullinia cupana) is a plant native to the Amazon Basin and commonly found in Brasil. The fruit of the plant is quite notable as it looks like an eyeball. The bright red outside of the fruit can often be found cracked open to reveal a white 'sclera' interior with a dark 'pupil' seed in the center. Guarana is very popular in Brasil and is used in candies, syrups, soft drinks, and tea.

The seeds of the guarana fruit are well-known as a caffeine-rich herbal stimulant and high-antioxidant herbal remedy. They contain approximately 2-3 times the amount of caffeine found in coffee beans. Which is why you will find guarana as an ingredient in many energy drinks. As an herbal tea it provides a similar energy boost as coffee, mate, guayusa, and tea. The caffeine content of the guarana seeds along with an impressive range of antioxidants brew up an ideal tea to help maintain focus and stay alert.

These cut guarana seeds can be used on their own or added to other tea blends to brew a cup of stimulating tea that is packed full of caffeine and antioxidants. Guarana have a mild flavor that can be added to nearly any tea blend to give it an added boost, but to give you some ideas, maybe you should try: Hot Cocoa with Guarana, Milky Chai Guarana, Coconut Matcha Guarana Latte, Lemon and Mint Guarana Refresher, Fruity Guarana Iced Tea.
