Why Green Tea Is The Best Tea For Energy

So, The next time you’re low on energy, instead of reaching for another bottle of energy drink that’s loaded with sugar or a cup of coffee loaded with copious amounts of caffeine, why not opt for a healthy and refreshing cup of green tea?

Green tea is packed to the brim with natural compounds that offer you a steady boost of energy and mental focus without the jitters or the crash associated with coffee and energy drinks. And while there’s a stigma that green tea tastes grassy and bitter, the truth couldn’t be any different! 

In this article, we’ll look into why green tea is one of the best options when it comes to enhancing energy levels and focus. We’ll also explain why two exceptional green tea varieties from Nepal Tea Collective can be the go-to green teas to help you rejuvenate your energy levels and help you say goodbye to the afternoon blues.  

The Power of Green Tea

From boosting metabolism to reducing inflammation, green tea is known for its amazing health benefits the world over. We’ve listed down some of the top reasons why this drink makes for the perfect alternative to coffee and energy drinks:

Lower Caffeine Content

While there’s no denying that green tea contains caffeine, it is significantly lower compared to coffee. An 8-ounce cup of green tea has around 20 to 45 milligrams of caffeine, compared to 80 to 100 milligrams in coffee. This moderate amount of caffeine will give you a gentle and sustained energy that will last a long while.  


Green tea also contains an amino acid called L-theanine This compound helps in calming the mind and also helps to absorb caffeine, wrestling in a balanced boost of energy that lasts longer without any of the jitters. L-theanine also promotes relaxation and focus, making it easier to enter and maintain a state of “flow” while working or studying. 


Green tea is a rich source of catechins, which according to ScienceDirect are potent antioxidants that improve cardiovascular health and reduce oxidative stress. One of the catechins called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is also found to be the most abundant, has been shown to improve memory, attention span, and feelings of calmness when consumed alone or in combination with caffeine and L-theanine. ESCG has also been shown to shield the body from free radicals produced due to stress and environmental factors.

Brewing Tips for Maximum Energy and Focus

  • Only use fresh, filtered water heated to around 175-185°F (80-85°C). Make sure to not boil the water, or let the boiled water simmer for a few minutes. Boiling water can make green tea taste bitter.
  • Use about 1 to 2 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea per 8-ounce cup. You can adjust the amount to meet your preference.
  • Steep the tea for 1 to 3 minutes. Oversteeping can make the tea taste bitter and astringent.
  • Drink your green tea hot or iced, depending on your preference. Both Ganesha Green and Kanchanjangha Verde make delicious iced teas.
