Caffeine versus Theine

What's the difference?

You may have heard us talk about trying theine instead of caffeine. Not that we don't like coffee, but most people don't realize that caffeine is in coffee and theine is in tea. They're almost the same molecule, but with almost imperceptible differences in the way the atoms are connected... and of course delivered in an entirely different chemical environment, as is theobromine in cocoa. And there are other kinds of alkaloids in nature, too.

The caffeine molecule

But we know green tea is special. For over a thousand years, humans have used tea to refresh, revive and enjoy.

While green tea is usually served very light, when concentrated its theine is a powerful metabolic booster, creating a "high" that is much smoother than coffee or chemical caffeine.

Energy shots or too much coffee stress the body, causing jitters, anxiety, nervousness, and mind-racing tachycardia.

Concentrated fresh green tea extract, on the other hand, provides smooth, clear-headed energy and powerful endurance. Try the difference for yourself!
