Founded after the owner took some time travelling extensively around China, on his travels he learnt about the properties of the Ginseng root, and the story that they helped the farmers of the country double their efforts around harvest time. Tracing back the story and learning that the secret lies in the purest form of Panax Ginseng the energy booster shot “Powershot” was born and released to the Danish market in 2005. In 2009 it was brought to the wider European market and the success that followed gave way to a re-branding campaign to hopefully better reflect what they believe in.
In addition to the already available 3 organic energy drinks a range of soft drinks is due to be released in the future with consumer health and wellbeing in mind.
As you can see all of the drinks contain Ginseng and a type of tea plus a fruity flavour, I was slightly worried when I agreed to try these, I’m very fussy when it comes to drinks, it’s not often I’m found drinking anything other than a nice cup of tea, so it was with trepidation I tried these.
Green Tea, Ginseng, Pomegranate and Acai Berries.
“With green tea leaves that have been grown on a peaceful mountain side in Sri Lanka, where they are well known for their high quality leaves. As the tea has undergone both minimal oxidation and further processing, the tea holds a high level of antioxidants and hence more of the original plant substances survive in this herb such as polyphenols.”
White Tea, Ginseng, Cherry and Acai Berries.
“Green, White and Black tea are all derived from the same plant, white tea (new to a lot of people) is picked from the plant at a far more immature stage. After the harvest the buds chosen are gently processed i n order to prevent oxidation or further fermentation, the purpose of this light processing is in order to retain the delicate taste and natural benefits.”
Black Tea, Ginseng, Peach and Acai Berries.
“Again from plants grown on the side of mountains in Sri Lanka, black tea is a more highly oxidized form of tea than white or green and thus carries a lower level of natural antioxidants whilst having a higher level of natural caffeine.”
I have to admit each one of these tastes delicious, the mixes all work so well the peach takes away the often dry aftertaste of black tea and replaces it with the sweet taste of peach, the cherry and white tea is beautifully fragrant and makes really refreshing drink. I was far from thinking that Pommegranate and green tea would mix but they really are beautifully satisfying together.
I can’t for sure say any of these gave me an energy boost, my energy is all over the place so it’s not really surprising I’m sometimes sure I could drink gallons of coffee and still feel fast asleep (probably a good thing I don’t drink coffee at all), I did share a couple with my Mum and she seemed to feel they perked her up a little so there is obviously something going on in there.
