Details: Our tea purchaser is from Colombia and she came up with the idea for this tea. She loves guava and combining it with coconut and hibiscus flowers reminds her of home. Being a woman, she had to make it look pretty, and she added in flowers: the yellow of marigolds and blue of cornflowers. To complete it she gave it the Spanish name for the Caribbean.
Dry Leaves: Although this tea is a mixture of green and black teas, the dry leaves are mostly dark with cornflower.
