One of the best substitutes for coffee is the interesting tasting green tea, something that has been growing in popularity for the last 10-years in the West.
Although many people would like to drink green tea more regularly, it can definitely be considered an acquired taste. If you’re searching for solution to this, you needn’t worry!
Zest Tea has an incredibly intriguing Pomegranate Mojito Green Energy Tea Fusion drink that personally blows my mind by the title.
Pomegranate Mojito, really? Yes!

Organization of this article:
- Why Green Tea?
The company, Zest Tea, offers this bold combination of pomegranate and green tea making is quite an energy tea.
Zest Tea is the strongest caffeinated tea on the market!
The caffeine contents provide about 140 to 160 mg per cup which is the same as the natural caffeine levels of coffee. Something which is almost unheard-of when compared to other energy teas!
No loss of energy by choosing a healthier alternative!
Green tea has a better, less heart-intensive caffeine effect (which I’ll go into more in the last section). But this particular green tea fusion mix has quite an exciting pallet of flavor.
- Young Hyson Chinese Green Tea
- Lime Flavor
Do you suffer from your coffee needs? Such as jitters, afternoon crash, or indigestion? You should seriously consider switching over to this green tea! Though the taste is a bit bland, Zest Tea’s flavoring is quite unique.
And don’t worry, if you dislike pomegranate, Zest Tea has many other flavors to choose from! From Blue Lady to apple, Earl Grey to pomegranate, their teas are highly intriguing. Some of these combinations I’ve not heard of for tea!
As a Baltimore (MD) company that was founded in 2014, the hip and modern approach is hard to beat. From the modern design of the bag to the goals of the company, Zest Tea is a passionate and idolized company.
They were named Top New Product Winner for the World Tea Expo in 2015 (talk about a good resume!).
They were chosen because of the unique energy characteristics (that match the amount of caffeine in coffee) and their bold/exciting flavors.
Zest Tea was also recognized as the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” in Entrepreneur 360 (a section of EntrePreneur Magazine). From starting out mixing teas for their own benefit to mass-producing and having a large audience enjoy their teas, this startup company has grown significantly with their popularity.
Another tidbit that’s worth mentioning is Zest Tea’s involvement in the answering of Amazon questions. It’s rare that a company participates in helping their customers and potential customers on Amazon.
If you do you’re own research of the Amazon customer reviews, there’s definitely a trend found in the over 900 reviews.
YOU EITHER LIKE IT OR YOU DON’T.
83% of the reviews give Zest Tea a 5-star rating. Only 9% give them less than 4 stars (pretty good track record to me).
- Sourced from Zhejiang Region of Chine
- non GMO
- Great taste, no need to add anything
- Caffience boost – long lasting, without the crash!
- Named “Best New Product” at the World Tea Expo of 2015
- Amazon’s Choice
- SupplySide Editor’s Choice Award 2014
- 20 packs for $12.30
- Caffeine boost doesn’t have a crash, but the “high” doesn’t last as long
- More expensive than other green teas and coffee
- Some say it’s just “mint tea”
For a company only around for a few years, they have sure grown to offer more than just this one flavor of tea (including Blue Lady Tea, Black Tea, etc.)
The pros far outweigh the cons, but the biggest issue is the price to me.
Although we all want to be healthy and drink the best quality tea, sometimes coffee is just more affordable. This green energy tea fusion offers the best replacement though as far as its caffeine boost without the crash.
Why Green Tea?
Green tea has some natural characteristics that provide caffeine, antioxidants, weight loss effects, amino acids, and more.

Green tea is packed with plentiful amino acids such as L-Theanine. This rare amino acid increase cognitive function when working alongside the natural caffeine present in green tea.
With this effect, a longer, more steady “alertness” reduces any chance for caffeine “jitters” that most find as a side effect. But not with green tea!
Benefits of green tea:
- Antioxidants (may help lower risk of some types of cancer)
- Amino acids (such as L-Theanine)
- Caffeine without the crash
- Contains bio active compounds
- May increase fat burning while improving your physical performance
- May lowers risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
- Improves dental health
- May lower the risk for Type 2 diabetes
- Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease
In general, the caffeine stimulates your brain without the effects of higher blood pressure or heart rate.
Overall, green tea offers a lot of benefits most people don’t realize. But there’s a reason green tea is catching on and becoming such a fad in the health community!
Whether you like green tea or not, it is definitely worth considering a switch from coffee.
What better way to acquire the taste for green tea than to add the flavoring of a pomegranate mojito?
I drink green tea all the time and do agree with the healthier caffeine effects, but I also like the taste. My wife on the other hand does not, but with enough almond milk and honey mixed in, she can at least drink it!
There are of course some who dislike green tea and if this is the case, they probably won’t like this green tea fusion drink. BUT. If you do like green tea, this flavor combination might be heaven on Earth for you!
I hope you found this article useful.
Best of luck in all your green energy tea adventures!
