Details

Tropical Guava, (Latin: Psidium guineense) is a pear shaped fruit with a slightly resinous, almost strawberry like flavor. At least that’s the straightforward definition. The more interesting definition is this: Tropical Guava is a fruit native to Brazil that features periodically in ancient voodoo rituals in the darkened, sultry and steamy corners of South America. Voodoo, the ancient mix of African and European religions is actually known as Candoblé by its Brazilian practitioners. The fruit is periodically offered as nourishment for the many African gods and goddesses during ceremonies and rituals. The fruit may be cut open and the juice dribbled onto the dusty floor of Candoblé temples as a kind of sacrifice to the divine. Well, if it’s good enough for the gods it’s good enough for us. We’ve blended the exotic flavor of Tropical Guava with the finest Ceylon tea available on the market. The result is a pleasingly astringent cup with wispy notes of strawberry like sweetness and sultry tropical highlights. Makes a great offering for your customers!
