About This Brand

RUNA was founded in 2009, days after we graduated from college. But our story begins several years earlier, when Tyler was living with the Kichwa people in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It was then he was introduced to guayusa – a naturally caffeinated tree leaf brewed like tea, consumed early in the morning to help interpret dreams and late at night to provide energy and clarity while hunting in the jungle. He loved the earthy flavor, smooth taste, and energy boost he got from the leaf.

Love

I'm a big fan of this energy tea. I wanted to cut back on caffeine so I started drinking this instead of coffee. It's very smooth, not bitter, and has rich color to it. It gives me a little energy and doesn't make me feel jittery.

- Carli

Works great!

I sip on in during a day and it gives me energy for all day It doesn't have strong flavor, taste like herbal tea i don't add any sweeteners either, it works better then coffee on me!!! :)
