Felt my energy ailing after lunch and brewed a 28oz pot of this. I got it as part of the David’s Tea Energize pack which includes ‘The Buzz’, ‘Jumpy Monkey’ and ‘Organic Guayusa’.
It tastes much different from green tea, somehow I expected it would taste similar. It’s extremely vegetal/earthy. Drawing any comparison to green tea, I’d say the smell, texture and mouth feel is similiar to Japanese Sencha, just with a lot more earthy notes. I have let this steep until cold and I’m glad I did, it doesnt become bitter and it’s delicious cool/cold! When cold there is a lot less flavor/nose but it goes down so easy. Energy is quite smooth and while I didn’t notice a kick, I just noticed that I’m not tired anymore. Interesting stuff! It would be awesome on ice with some sugar in the summertime as an iced tea substitute.
