Best Teas For Energy

We all feel a little low energy sometimes. We may get the afternoon crash, we may lose focus throughout the day, or we may just not feel up to the task before us. Often, we're tempted to reach for coffee when we're feeling a little on the drowsy side – but this has its risks. Coffee can give energy, but it also often comes with the jitters, anxiety, and a general lack of focus, especially in the afternoon. At Art of Tea, we recommend a different fix for your low-energy days: premium loose leaf tea. Here are our favorite teas for when you need an energetic pick-me-up!


Matcha is the wunderkind of green tea. Matcha has about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee, but the massive doses of antioxidants (matcha has 137x the amount of antioxidants as green tea) mean that matcha doesn't come with the same jitteriness as coffee. Matcha is great in the morning, but it's perfect as an afternoon pick-me-up, as it'll provide a smooth boost of energy that carries you through the rest of the day.

Bright Eyed

If you're looking for a boost without the caffeine content, our Bright Eyed tea blend is perfect for you. This caffeine-free tisane features an energizing blend of cinnamon, turmeric, and ginger, combining for a warm, spicy flavor that perks up body and mind. Designed with ancient Ayurvedic principles in mind, this is the perfect energy boost for any time of day!

Happy Tea

Finally, our Happy tea is ideal for an energy and mood boost. This blend is made with raspberries and hibiscus for a tangy, effervescent zing, and we've included guayusa for a powerful energy boost. Drink it anytime you're feeling a little low!
