Simple Truth Organic Guayusa Teas

One of the lovely things about having a blog is that I am able to search the blog for things I've written about in the past. This week, when I saw some bottled Guayusa herbal teas at Kroger, I thought, "Oh, I just tried hot Guayusa teas a year or so ago, I believe." To my surprise, it was much longer ago than that. (Go here if you want to read about these teas.) The new bottled Guayusa teas are from the Simple Truth line of organic products at Kroger, and I decided to try both the Lime and Guava flavors.

The good news is, each 16-ounce bottle of tea has just 5 calories, and there's no fat, sodium, carbs or sugars. That's the good news. I did detect the fruity flavors in both the lime and guava varieties.

The bad news, alas, is that these teas don't taste too great. They're not the worst bottled teas I've ever tried, but they're not ones I'd buy again either, largely owing to the almost medicinal aftertaste. I thought $1.59 was a great price for such a healthy bottled herbal tea drink, but I really want my teas to taste good, too. Have you tried Guayusa teas, hot or bottled? If so, what did you think?


  1. Hi Angela! I am not too much a fan of bottled teas - but appreciate your review & recommendation! It is so nice this one does sound like a healthy alternative bottled tea!

  2. Thanks for reviewing these teas. You have saved us time and money and an unpleasant tea experience. Love you and your blog.

  3. I'm also not a fan of bottled teas...way too artificially sweet. Thanks for your honest review.

  4. No haven't tried it and don't plan on trying it.
    It doesn't even sound tempting.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
