Teatulia creates its organic Energy Tea by infusing award-winning tea leaves with Eleuthero Root, a centuries-old energizing herb that helps the body perform optimally, recover faster and adapt to stressful conditions. There are three different types of Energy Teas available – Energy Red (tart, yet sweet), Energy Green (tropically refreshing) and Energy Black (sweet, spicy, invigorating). The best part? $1 from every First Descents canister sold benefits FD and young adults impacted by cancer!

Fruit-tea Energy Smoothie by Tea Foodie


  • 2 cups water
  • 6 Teatulia Energy Red tea bags
  • Ice cube tray
  • ⅓ cup fresh berries
  • Juice & pulp of 1 to 2 oranges
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt or dairy free yogurt
  • 1 small banana
  • Optional: mint, basil, or tarragon leaves for garnish
  • Note: Don’t want to wait on tea ice cubes?  Use 1 cup of cooled, strong brewed tea and add frozen berries instead of fresh!


Bring water to a boil. Place Teatulia® tea bags in a 2-cup (or larger) glass measuring cup. Pour boiling water over tea bags, cover measuring cup with a plate or towel, and let steep for 5 minutes.

Remove tea bags and let tea cool to room temperature. Once cool, pour tea into ice cube tray to fill. Freeze overnight.

Place 6 to 8 of the Energy Tea ice cubes in a blender and add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into two glasses and serve garnished with fresh herbs and any remaining berries if desired.

Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Green Tea Breakfast or Dinner Quinoa by Tea Foodie


  • 2 Cups water
  • 2 Teatuilia Energy Green tea bags
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • Optional add-ins: honey, berries, banana, chopped nuts, coconut flakes. Going the dinner route? Try out some roasted veggies! 


Bring the water to a boil. Add the quinoa and Teatulia® Energy Green tea bags. Nestle the tea bags into the quinoa so they are covered with water. Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover, and cook until all the water has absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and leave covered for 5 more minutes. Remove cover, fluff quinoa with a fork, and serve individual bowlfuls with your favorite toss-ins. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to several days.

For a creamy morning breakfast, reheat with a little coconut milk.  For a subtler brew, add the tea bags ten minutes after the quinoa.

Yield: Makes about 4 cups
