Celestial Seasonings Citrus ENERJI Green Tea Energy Shot

Country of Origin: not given

Preparation Method: bottled
Liquor: light brown

The citrus flavor of this energy shot is strong and sweet, very reminiscent of orange. It all but masked the green tea underneath. There was a mild tartness at the end of each sip but it wasn't unpleasant. I prefer the berry flavor that I have tried previously but this one was decent. It does taste a little better than its Kombucha cousin. I love these shots because they are an immediate pick me up but there is no crash and burn like I'll often experience with Red Bull or Five Hour Energy. I also think that they taste a lot better than either of those options. For now the green tea shots are only available online but they should be in stores soon.
