Guarana seed

stars, based on reviews

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.

  • Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of teafor each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Pour into your cup and add milk and sugar to taste.

    Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or 'milky' when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
