Best tea for energy?

Hi everyone! I just wanted to get your take on your recommendations for tea that gives you energy. I don’t just mean caffeinated teas here – I mean a particular blend, or an herbal mix that is good for your energy.

Black tea is actually NOT energy producing for me because I’m iron deficient, so it takes it away!

Looking forward to hearing your advice!

Zesty ginger blends! Anything that smells nice and bright. Citrus and ginger do that for me.
Personally, I drink matcha for the caffeine hit. I hear that some shengs have an ‘energizing’ cha qi rather than a relaxing one… If you find such a tea, it may work better for you than caffeine?

Thanks! The cha qi concept is really interesting, I’ll have to read more about it. :)

Matcha! Instead of discarding the tea leaves, you consume them all. It gives a nice boost of energy and has L-Theanine, an amino acid that’ll keep you feeling calm, but alert :)

I might be biased since I sell it, but I drink it every morning and it really helps me start my day.

Cool! Thanks! I’ve been drinking sencha in the morning but it would be interesting to see what would happen if I switched to matcha. :)

I drink yerba mate every morning. Not tea, but still… far superior to coffee IMO.

Agreed. Especially a roasted mate. I’m a big fan of roasted mate blends for a good pick me up.

Hmm, interesting idea! I’m pretty unfamiliar with mate. Where do I start?

Yerba mate is great for energy! My favorite is Kusmi’s BB Detox, it’s a mate/green tea blend with grapefruit flavors, so tasty. If you like things on the sweeter side, David’s Tea has some I really like (Chocolate Rocket, mmm) and even after ten years of tea education and expanding my range I still enjoy Teavana’s Matevana.
