Xenergy + Tea Honey Ginseng Energy Drink Review

Being a sixteen (or fifteen and a half rather) ounce can immediately tells you this is an energy drink, so beginning at the top, there is no reason for the first word to be "energy"; we already know that! "Green Tea" is fine but the brand should come first, as it is often the reason why people choose one drink over another (unfortunately it is rarely taste). Then we witness this little yellow ball and then giant green one. It does bridge the two strips of color together, but the chunky and minimal text looks empty inside. Now we are looking at the flavor, "Honey Ginseng," but this is where the tea should now appear: tea is a flavor ya know! We get also a UFC sponsorship and tons of text incorrectly emphasized; there is a lot of retail space on a can, use it wisely.

Sweet honey brightly introduces the polite taste of green tea, earthy and weakly bitter in only the best possible way. You can almost feel the leafs pass your tongue as you sip, an effulgent experience that shames similar efforts from Arizona and Snapple. There is depth here, honest complexity to both the tea and honey, an unrefined elegance with notes of nature and forgotten candor. Gulps (they are gulps, trust me) are effervescent despite being noneffercescent, and are pounded back one after another in perhaps Xenergy's most mainstream flavor to date, if not one of their best.

Taurine, B vitamins, carnitine, inositol, guarana, and 155 milligrams of caffeine are included per can. Oh, there is also green tea and ginseng, but ya already new that. The kick lasts something under three hours, a mild kick after its refreshing flavor.
