Energy…we need it, we burn through it. But what is it exactly? The word itself comes from the Greek energeia which means “activity” or “operation”. While bodily energy is needed to accomplish all of our daily tasks, according to physiologists, the human body is notoriously bad at using it efficiently. No wonder so many of us feel so exhausted so often! Subsequently, even though we get our energy from the foods we consume daily, we often feel the need to supplement our energy sources. Typically, people will reach for a cup of coffee. (Unfortunately for many that also means the jitters – a frequent coffee induced side effect.)
To give you some options when looking for an energy-boosting beverage, Metropolitan Tea is pleased to present Energy, an invigorating blend of Green Mate, Lemongrass, Spearmint, Ginseng, Gingko and other vivacious, body enriching herbs. A full-bodied cup with herbal notes and fresh spearmint sweetness, this one is the perfect pick-me-up at any time of day. Feeling down, energy stores lagging? Reach for a cup and get ready for a boost!
Mate, the base leaf of this blend, the herb is known as a national drink of Brazil and Argentina where it is enjoyed as a pick-me-up at any time of day. The beverage owes its invigorating character to mateine, a caffeine-like compound present in the leaves.
