I received free tea to review. If you click and buy, I may receive a small commission. Thank you! Between work and being in grad school full time, I need the energy boost of caffeine. I drink a cup of coffee in the morning, but sometimes that extra cup (or energy drink) later leaves me feeling just as tired, but jittery.
When companies ask to send items for review, I often decline because a) “stuff” makes me overwhelmed, b) it’s pretty time-consuming to write blog posts and time is in short supply lately. However, when I looked at Zest tea, I was pretty intrigued. It has about as much caffeine as coffee (120-150 mg) and contains L-Theanine, which is thought to improve cognitive function when combined with caffeine. The brand is also based out of Baltimore, MD so supporting a local company is pretty cool!
