Pacari: Guayusa chocolate bar

£4.69
Regular price £4.69

We can't tell you how excited we were to get our hands on this divine Guayusa infused organic chocolate from award-winning chocolate makers, Pacari.

As you can imagine, Guayusa is part of our daily lives here at The Guayusa Co - we are surrounded by the sight, smell and taste of it, pretty much 24/7!

When we first opened a bar of this chocolate we were struck by the delightful aroma of Guayusa, nestling within waves of the most gorgeous cacao.

As for the rest, it was love at first bite! A smooth, rich chocolate with the unmistakable taste of Guayusa, at just the right intensity.

Premium chocolate. Premium Guayusa. Made by the professionals.

If we've anything else to add here, it can only be: "Please buy this chocolate before we eat it all!"

More about Pacari

In the indigenous language of Quechua, the word 'Pacari' means 'Nature'.

Winning more than 200 international chocolate awards, Pacari are an organisation we are thrilled to connect with - and not only because of their incredible chocolate - read more about Pacari below, and you'll understand why:

  • Only the finest Ecuadorian Cacao beans are used in Pacari chocolate

  • All their chocolate is produced and packaged in Ecuador - 'tree to bar' - rather than 'bean to bar', which is where cacao beans are imported from developing countries with the onward production occurring in a non cacao growing country. This allows for more of the wealth to stay in the country of origin.

  • Pacari works directly with local farmers - over 3,500 farming families, in fact. What's more they pay significantly over market prices to ensure the the farmers are rewarded adequately for the passion and dedication involved.

  • Pacari has been awarded the 'Demeter Biodynamic Certification' which means production occurs in an ecosystem that keeps an ecological balance - good for animals, insects, plats, soil and people - no pesticides, fertilisers or chemicals are used.

  • This Guayusa chocolate - and all Pacari products - are free of...

    • Nuts
    • Soy
    • Gluten
    • Dairy
    • Palm Oil
    • Artificial products

  • ...and are vegan and kosher certified

Please note these are the maximum prices you will pay. For smaller value packs (e.g. 75g packs of loose leaf or our tea bags) the prices may end up cheaper! You'll see the calculated shipping as you move through the checkout. The table below is a good guide but there may be some variance depending on what you order.

If you're out of tea pot practice, or don't have one at all, there is no need to be freaked out by our gorgeous green guayusa flakes.

Check out our top tips and methods for getting the best out of your guayusa tea leaves, brew a cup - then sit back and enjoy!

Loose leaf Guayusa

‘Cafetiere’ and ‘ground coffee’ are all you need to think of - just treat our loose leaf guayusa like coffee grounds.

This is the simplest way we can suggest in terms of kit you may already have around the office or kitchen.

It’s how we starting to enjoy loose leaf guayusa - we may as well call them guayusa-tieres these days :)

We have also used classic China tea pots with great success.

If convenience, mobility and ease of cleaning are your thing, tea ball infusers are a great option.

You can also get little DIY tea bags with string tags - our older customers will remember we used to send out free samples of guayusa in these - come to think of it, we're not sure why we've stopped (note to self, look into getting more DIY tea bags...) 

We have had glowing reports of the Sage Tea Maker from one of our customers too, which we would certainly love to try one day.

We have a lovely Bodum glass tea pot - and it makes a fantastic cup of guayusa tea and is very easy to clean.

Tea bags

We sell our own guayusa tea bags - these are intended to be the pinnacle of convenience in that it's as simple as popping one in a cup and pouring on boiling water in the way we are sure you are already very familar with!

When we make a cup with our tea bags, we leave them in, but you can take them out after 5 mins or so - it'll still be a great cup of guayusa.

Amount of guayusa and brewing time

Like any tea or coffee you are going to find the optimum volume of product and brewing time that suits you best. 

The general volume of guayusa per cup seems to be around 2g. This is what we put into our pure guayusa tea bags - and it make a perfect brew for us - delivering just the right taste and energy hit.

Of course, with our loose leaf guayusa, you can choose to put less or more in. I would say at home we probably do make it a bit stronger - in the same way you might have an extra shot in a cappuccino or a double espresso, etc.

One striking difference with guayusa is that it's pretty much impossible to over brew it - it has very low tannin content so does not have the bitterness of tea or coffee (it also won't stain your teeth or cups - cool, huh?)

Showing off your brew of green goodness

One of the best ways we love to show off guayusa’s glorious green colour is by serving it in the kind of tea 'glasses' shown in the image at the top.

They’re dual walled so you can safely hold them as you sip the energising guayusa brew inside! We absolutely love drinking guayusa from these.
