Ditch the Sugar for Clean Energy

Ditch the Sugar for Clean Energy

by Emma Hampton June 07, 2018

Looking for something to help you crush your workouts? Something to help you stay focused so you can work harder, for longer? Best yet - what if that something was healthy and all-natural?

Ditch the Red Bull and sugar loaded energy drinks.

Say hello to Tenzo Matcha Tea.

Tenzo Tea is 100% matcha green tea. It comes with 72 mg of naturally occurring caffeine in every teaspoon with zero sugar and zero calories. Matcha has naturally occurring amino acid called "L-Theanine" which releases caffeine into the bloodstream slowly over time, giving you a more alert and sustained energy buzz.

In addition, Matcha is packed with antioxidants that help protect the heart and brain. So not only are you giving yourself a natural boost of energy, but you’re keeping yourself healthy too. Your workouts will be stronger, and your body will be healthier for it.

To us, Redbull feels like one big can of chemicals. It has 27 grams of sugar per can (1), plus 80 mg of injected caffeine and added Taurine (2), The negative effects of excessive sugar have been widely documented for years, plus Taurine has been found to function as more of a sedative than a stimulant, which can actually slow down your brain’s activity (3). Most of the ingredients in these products are unnatural and actually cause a massive energy crash after the initial surge. No thanks!

Side by side, Redbull is no match for Tenzo Tea:

Tenzo Tea Matcha vs Redbull Caffeine, Sugar, Calories

Matcha is also way more versatile to drink. Tenzo Tea can be made hot, iced, or as a quick matcha shot. You can blend it into a smoothie or shake it up for pre-workout before going to the gym. There are so many ways to feel the healthy energy!

But we know what you're thinking. How life will go on without Redbull for this weekend’s pregame? It's easy - energy filled Tenzo Cocktails.

The best part about a Tenzo Tonic or a Tenzo Mule? No sugar hangover! The smooth umami flavor of matcha blends perfectly into your favorite alcoholic drinks to give you a healthy boost of energy.

These bright green, delicious drinks will definitely be a hit at your next get-together, and, you’ll feel great in the morning!
