Countless Americans start their day with a fresh cup of joe to relieve morning grogginess. In fact, it’s estimated that about 64% of Americans drink a cup of coffee everyday!

But drinking too much coffee or drinking it later in the day can have an adverse effect on mood and sleep quality, making you anxious or restless.

For those looking to fight the afternoon slump without resorting to coffee, check out these energy-boosting teas!

Green Matcha

Matcha is a bright green powder traditional to Japan. It produces a nice frothy drink that’s delicious hot or cold. Matcha powder delivers a burst of energy due to its high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid that stimulates alpha waves in the brain. L-theanine increases focus while reducing stress, creating a calm alertness. In other words, matcha won’t leave you feeling jittery. Plus, it’s full of antioxidants.

Masala Chai Tea

A beloved beverage in India, this tea packs a flavorful punch with its infusions of different spices. Chai tea contains black tea, which has an average of 50 milligrams of caffeine per cup. Along with the considerable energy boost and the tea’s natural antioxidants, you’ll be benefitting from all the delicious spices like ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. These ingredients have been shown to have unique health properties, such as lowering blood sugar and helping fight inflammation. (Take note though! Chai drinks from cafes are usually loaded with sugar. Brewing your own is a healthier option).

Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate tea is made from the leaves and twigs of the Ilex paraguariensis plants that grow in South America. With about about 80 milligrams of caffeine per cup, Yerba mate tends to be much stronger than black tea but milder than coffee: this results in a moderate dose of caffeine that pumps up your energy without causing a crash later on. Yerba Mata also has perks that coffee doesn’t-it’s full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In fact, this tea’s abundance of nutrients has earned it the nickname “liquid salad.”
