The origins of our guayusa

Why we do not use stevia to sweeten
We do not use stevia in Nightwatch because it is not allowed. What people call “stevia" is actually the refined isolated and concentrated chemical E960.
Nightwatch community day
Nightwatch organizes community days for which we invite all the farmers with whom we work. So, what does Nightwatch actually do during this community day? During the day itself we learn to know each other by chatting, cooking and eating together, and most of all just having fun. The quichua elders tell us everything about their rituals and traditions regarding guayusa but also generally about their traditional beliefs.
Purity is a thing
Nightwatch does NOT use any of the following chemicals to maintain or improve Freshnes
