I recently received samples of Love Grace’s newest product line, which is aimed to boost energy for high performers on-the-go. The company has three flavors, all of which are 100% organic, non-GMO verified, and kosher.
All three Love Grace drinks have very different tastes and ingredient lists to please a wide variety of pallets. Are you a matcha latte person, or more of a warm and rich mocha lover? Perhaps you enjoy a more fruity and punchy taste of yerba mate?
The Mate formula is a first to market cold-brewed Yerba Mate tea with pineapple, green apple, and sea buckthorn berry, a superfood that contains Omega 7, vitamin E, and 10x the vitamin C of oranges. I enjoyed the fruity, tangy taste while taking my hour-long subway commute one morning and entered the office happy and energized. The mate flavor was my favorite by far!
The Matcha formula combines Matcha (powdered whole green tea leaves) with chia, hemp, and coconut milk. This was my second favorite; the ingredients balance each other well for a comforting and creamy beverage. It felt smooth and warming while I drank it thanks to the coconut milk and vanilla.
Though I love mochas, I didn’t like the taste of the Mocha flavor. Since I dislike mushrooms, it was hard to get over the prevalent medicinal mushroom taste and smell of this drink. If you love mushrooms, you will probably enjoy this one! But if you usually stay away from them like me, then I recommend you go for the Mate or Matcha before this one. The Mocha formula blends cold-brewed coffee with raw cacao and medicinal mushrooms like reishi, chaga, and cordyceps to boost immune function and support anti-aging.
So, how did Love Grace get the idea to create a line of Organic Herbal Energy drinks?
“I came up with the idea struggling to get to 6am hot yoga classes,” said Jake Mabanta, CEO and Head of Product Development at Love Grace. “I wanted a quick beverage that didn’t just give me a boost of energy, but one that also contained a high nutritional profile to support an active body.”
Love Grace Organic Herbal Energy is available exclusively at Whole Foods Market.
