Time of the Day
What kind of tea gives you energy?
Tea is the perfect beverage to keep you powering consistently through the busiest of days! While steaming cups of black tea, green tea, oolong or white tea all admit to keeping company with caffeine, they pack way less punch than an explosive cup of coffee. With one of these teas on the go you’ll remain super productive all day long, with no three o’clock slumps in sight.
Some loose leaf tea blends and herbal tisanes deliver a sustained energy boost from plant-powered sources. Take an aromatic cup of spicy chai for example, or a supersonic matcha brew. Bursting with beautifully-blended herbs and spice and all things nice, a cup of chai or matcha will deliver all the vim and vigour you need to deal with your to-do list in record time.
If you need to be focused but don’t want the caffeine buzz, a tea such as Wakey Wakey will keep you on track until the finish line is in sight. Wakey Wakey blends the grassy goodness of green tea with energising guarana, yerba mate and ginger – a dynamic team of healthy energy providers.
Starting your day with a sensational black tea brew can be a little gentler on the stomach than a first-thing coffee jolt. Morning Sunshine is an invigorating black tea combo of Assam, Darjeeling and Rwanda tea leaves perfectly blended to help you hit the ground running.
Why not delve into an energy focused state throughout the day by trying our duo pack, which includes both Wakey Wakey and Morning Sunshine.
Does green tea give you energy?

All black teas are fabulous get-up-and-go beverages, providing not just an energy boost but also serving up health benefits from antioxidants, flavonoids and polyphenols. The perfect coffee alternative, a healthy black tea brew is one of the best energy teas you’ll find.
What herbal tea is good for energy?
When you choose herbal teas as your go-to bevvie your teacup overflows with goodness and vitality.
Some of Mother Nature’s finest ingredients are found in energetic herbal tisanes. Also fantastic for energy is Turmeric Matcha and 100% Certified Organic Matcha. You’ll find that a daily brew creates a new you, full of vigour and verve after just one serve!
What gives you more energy tea or coffee?
To tea or not to tea, that is the question. But the answer’s not hard…
A cup of coffee is often thought to be the solution to dwindling energy levels during the day and the ideal kick-start in the morning. But what goes up must come down, so is the short-lived boost from a caffeine-rich cup of coffee really worth it? Not when you can indulge in brewtiful cups of tea delivering smooth infusions of sustained energy and unwavering focus, minus the coffee jitters and the come-downs!
How to make energy tea?
Whipping up a supercharged brew of energy boosting tea is easy. All T2 teas and tisanes come with simple brewing guidelines, alternatively, you can explore our brewing fundamentals online so you can learn how to make the perfect cup of tea every time.
The ideal brewing time and temperature varies from tea to tea. 100°C is the temperature many teas enjoy, so you know there won’t be any trouble with your brew even though your tea leaves are in hot water! Other teas and tisanes are more comfortable dipping their toes in temperatures of about 80°C and any hotter will bruise their delicate constitutions, so take note of the ideal temp for your fave tea.
As for brewing times, even if you’re gasping for that refreshing cup of energy boosting tea, stick to the recommended brewing times to get the best out of your cuppa. That may be as quick as two to three minutes, or it could be for as long as three to five minutes, but hang in there for as long as is needed to get the ultimate turbo boost from your tea.
Most energy teas like to go solo, but some will party on with a dash of milk added to the mix. Typically black tea will partner up with a splash of the white stuff, but most herbal teas are purists – so drink them au-naturale. Matcha is the unique individual in the green tea crew – a powerful green tea which is truly sensational when whisked latte-style into a frothy, milky brew.
