Birchbox Breakdown

Considering the energy-boosting benefits of drinking tea, it’s easy to see why the beverage is enjoyed around the world. Runa’s sweet and revitalizing blends rank among our favorite imports. Made with organic guayusa, an exotic Amazonian leaf, each brew has more caffeine than your typical tea blends and double the antioxidants of green tea.

How it Works

In addition to upping our daily wellness quotient, Runa’s tasty teas are made with the best organic ingredients and are full of antioxidants. For a boost of energy, try the Traditional blend or unwind after a long day with the relaxing Mint flavor. If you’re in the mood for something different, try the zesty Cinnamon Lemongrass, a full-bodied mix of guayusa flavored with aromatic cinnamon and lemongrass. Lastly, the Ginger-Citrus is a rich blend with a hint of citrus and spicy ginger.

How to Use

Pour boiling water over the leaves. Steep for 4-7 minutes or longer for a stronger brew.

Ginger-Citrus is the best!
Purchased

I always keep some tea in my desk at work to give me a boost during the day. The ginger-citrus tea does just that! it tastes great and I use just a small amount of local honey to sweeten it and it is some of the best tea I have ever had! I am excited to try other flavors! if you are a tea drinker, please try the Ginger-citrus!

Delicious, unexpected flavour; nice little caffeine buzz
Purchased

I practically live on tea, especially during cold weather, and am always looking to try new and different flavours and varieties. This one in particular piqued my interest both because of its higher caffeine content, and the cinnamon-lemongrass flavour, a combination which had never occurred to me before. It certainly did not disappoint! The unusual combination of flavours makes for a delicious, unexpected taste that, in my opinion, needs no sweetening or cream. As the description states, the caffeine content is definitely greater than that of green tea -- I would liken it to that of black tea -- so it makes the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. In fact, writing this review has made me want to go brew up a cuppa right now!

Tea is now a staple in my house
Purchased

I am a huge tea lover and this tea has been a great addition to my normal stash. It is light in flavor for such a bold tea and I like that. It definitely gives a brush of energy but isn't overwhelming like energy drinks, etc. Love the taste.

Good but not my favorite tea

I did enjoy this tea but it's not my favorite. It was a little lacking in the flavor department, even when I added honey. I'm a huge fan of green tea and maybe that overshadowed my view of this tea. It was good but I wouldn't purchase it.

Like the energy
Purchased

I bought this tea because of its natural energy benefits. I like the energy it gave me that didn't give me jitters. I also thought the taste (while I added stevia) was pleasant. I will be buying this again simply because the health benefits and energy benefits out weigh most average teas. I drink it Iced but I tried it hot and it wasn't bad either.

A nice alternative
Purchased

I'm on a mission to expand my tea selection & I liked this one! A nice alternative to green & black teas...mild, earthy with just the slightest bitter aftertaste. Mild caffeine content left me alert, not jittery. Will definitely be purchasing again.

More tea....blah

Sorry to Runa, who is probably a great company, but teas are always a downer for me. I expect to see beauty products, and teas are just a disappointment. This really has nothing to do with the company, and I'm sure it's great for some people. I'm just not one of them.

Purchased

This tea has a unique flavor and an even more surprising energy lift! It contains antioxidants- which we all could use and never get enough of. Just a "good for you" tea to drink in the afternoon before the slump grabs you

Yummy Tea

A few of my friends don't particular care for receiving teas in their Birchbox, but I love it.

I received the sample pack that came with quite a few tea bags (totally worth it). It tastes great and gives me energy, but I don't feel too wound up (I have a coffee addiction, so there's your answer). This is a great product and smart gift idea for a friend or coworker that isn't too keen on coffee and wants to stay awake for that Monday morning meeting.

Very tasty & gives me energy

This is a great alternative to my usual morning cup of coffee. It is really good ( I like the citrus ginger best) and gives me energy. Most teas don't give me this same energy boost.
