Tea bag appearance: A mixture of finely ground and loosely chopped pieces in a see through teabag.
Tea bag scent: Thickly herbal but with some sweetness from the ginseng.
Steeping Instructions: None are given on the packaging but knowing this contains green tea I will use water just under boiling for approx 3-5 minutes. Also, a quick note to say the teabag string is a little short and needs to be tied around the handle to stop the bag from fully submerging, string and all.
Once steeped a green brown liquid is the result with a mild sweet grass scent.
In flavour this is sweet and soft, somewhat matching it’s scent. There is also a honey like quality about it from the ginseng. It’s not bitter nor herbal tasting but it does have some dryness in the after taste but it doesn’t linger for too long. The green tea itself is noticeable but it’s not bold so I think it would be suitable for those that are new to green tea or perhaps are not overly keen on it.
So, an energy tea…frankly I am all for more energy! Despite it being a tea bag I found this one pleasant in flavour and ease to brew. It’s sweetness was not overly strong but subtle enough to be refreshing and leave a pleasant (though short lived) after taste. Again, with a name like energy this tea is more than just something to taste nice. Green tea is well known for having energy boosting properties though it seems it doesn’t work for everyone after reading through a few forums. Personally I do feel a little change, I mean I couldn’t run a marathon but I feel focused and ready to tackle my goal list for today. Than in itself is an improvement from my zombie like state pre tea. I have a feeling it’s too early to say yet but hopefully my energy will increase slightly throughout the day.
