Company description
Runa is a social enterprise producing teas from Guayusa, a highly caffeinated Amazonian superplant. Guayusa is naturally smooth without the bitterness of tea and it gives the energy burst of coffee without the jitters or crash. Our teas and bottled beverages will be the highest energy, lowest sugar, offerings on the market. We have an exclusive supply of guayusa, sustainably sourced from 600 small farmers in Ecuador. To date, Runa has supported the reforestation of over 200 acres of rainforest.
