This is part of the brand new range of green tea energy shots from Celestial Seasonings. I am a huge fan of their Kombucha shots so I was really excited to give these a try. It was fruity and sweet but not overly so. It actually reminded me much more of apples than berries. This shot has 100mg of caffeine, which is just slightly more than a typical cup of coffee. I felt a little pep in my step but there wasn't a big rush of energy which was great because that also meant that there was no crash afterwards. Ingredients on labels are listed in order of volume and I was a little disappointed to see that green tea was the fifth ingredient on the list. I would have preferred that the tea be the first ingredient, as it is in the kombucha shot line. That being said, it won't stop me from enjoying these when I need a boost.
