Better… yes… be better, it motivated Paolo to find a natural way to fuel his Cross Fit passion. He wasn’t sure where to start so he called his friend Marco, an expert formulator. The requirements were simple: no to sugar, no to chemicals, yes to tea, herbs, and mushrooms. The challenge: hand-craft a convenient power-packed energy drink.
One recipe after another and the experimenting started to show that tea as a performance drink could work. The blend came together, and PT Energy was born – a combination of green tea and adaptogens (aka super herbs) designed to allow the body and mind to perform at its best.
How better to test it – enter Joe, ultra-endurance athlete, taking on the challenge of a lifetime running six marathons in six consecutive days on six continents, and he needed every advantage he could get. Performance Tea put to the ultimate test; provide sustained energy for this crazy endeavor. Joe drank it as he ran across the world and successfully completed the journey. Boy did it deliver! The team knew they were onto something.
And that meant it was back to the “kitchen” with the mission of creating a line of instant functional, adaptogenic tea blends to provide an alternative to coffee without jitters or crashes. They quickly knew that there was one more dimension needed. Once again Marco worked his magic using organically grown full spectrum Hemp extract to create three CBD blends: Recovery, Revive and Snooze. A bookend of sorts - CBD tea blends to help recover, to aid with mobility, and to help get a great night's sleep. It was time to bring the products to market for everyone, not just the athlete. A complete product line to help people achieve their potential in an over-stimulated, time-starved, interrupt-driven world. Better energy, better focus, better recovery, better sleep.
And there you have it. Performance Tea’s classically unlikely origin story. Three founders forever committed to sharing a path towards better performance, naturally and conveniently.
