Birchbox Breakdown

Considering the energy-boosting benefits of drinking tea, it’s easy to see why the beverage is enjoyed around the world. Runa’s sweet and revitalizing blends rank among our favorite imports. Made with organic guayusa, an exotic Amazonian leaf, each brew has more caffeine than your typical tea blends and double the antioxidants of green tea.

How it Works

In addition to upping our daily wellness quotient, Runa’s tasty teas are made with the best organic ingredients and are full of antioxidants. For a boost of energy, try the Traditional blend or unwind after a long day with the relaxing Mint flavor. If you’re in the mood for something different, try the zesty Cinnamon Lemongrass, a full-bodied mix of guayusa flavored with aromatic cinnamon and lemongrass. Lastly, the Ginger-Citrus is a rich blend with a hint of citrus and spicy ginger.

How to Use

Pour boiling water over the leaves. Steep for 4-7 minutes or longer for a stronger brew.

Good tea!
Purchased

I brewed this tea, added fresh lemon and honey, and ice. It tasted really good and my family liked it also. I had problems sleeping that night, so it may have been overstimulating.

Yuck. Cheap Tea

I know I'm a tea snob. But this was really just..not good tea. I tried one at work and thought it was aweful, so I left the rest of the samples there at work. One of them is still there. Guess I'm not the only one who thought it was gross.

Good tea
Purchased

I had purchased two boxes of the Guayusa spice from a local grocery store and loved it but haven't been able to find it since. When I saw Birchbox carried the brand I was sad that "my flavor" wasn't available but though I'd try another flavor. While this flavor is fine I do prefer the spice, however, the effect of a nice little energizing pick me up is the same.

nice herbal product.
Purchased

I like tea and herbals product . I tried this one just to change my green tea drinking habit :)
It is very natural as I didn't felt too much the cafeine .
I think its is a good greenleaves products( you can see this thru the tea pouch) . the taste is smooth and slighty sweet.

Ginger-Citrus is the best!
Purchased

I always keep some tea in my desk at work to give me a boost during the day. The ginger-citrus tea does just that! it tastes great and I use just a small amount of local honey to sweeten it and it is some of the best tea I have ever had! I am excited to try other flavors! if you are a tea drinker, please try the Ginger-citrus!

Delicious, unexpected flavour; nice little caffeine buzz
Purchased

I practically live on tea, especially during cold weather, and am always looking to try new and different flavours and varieties. This one in particular piqued my interest both because of its higher caffeine content, and the cinnamon-lemongrass flavour, a combination which had never occurred to me before. It certainly did not disappoint! The unusual combination of flavours makes for a delicious, unexpected taste that, in my opinion, needs no sweetening or cream. As the description states, the caffeine content is definitely greater than that of green tea -- I would liken it to that of black tea -- so it makes the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. In fact, writing this review has made me want to go brew up a cuppa right now!

Tea is now a staple in my house
Purchased

I am a huge tea lover and this tea has been a great addition to my normal stash. It is light in flavor for such a bold tea and I like that. It definitely gives a brush of energy but isn't overwhelming like energy drinks, etc. Love the taste.

Good but not my favorite tea

I did enjoy this tea but it's not my favorite. It was a little lacking in the flavor department, even when I added honey. I'm a huge fan of green tea and maybe that overshadowed my view of this tea. It was good but I wouldn't purchase it.

Like the energy
Purchased

I bought this tea because of its natural energy benefits. I like the energy it gave me that didn't give me jitters. I also thought the taste (while I added stevia) was pleasant. I will be buying this again simply because the health benefits and energy benefits out weigh most average teas. I drink it Iced but I tried it hot and it wasn't bad either.

A nice alternative
Purchased

I'm on a mission to expand my tea selection & I liked this one! A nice alternative to green & black teas...mild, earthy with just the slightest bitter aftertaste. Mild caffeine content left me alert, not jittery. Will definitely be purchasing again.
