Local Food Scientist Brews Line of Energy Teas
Hoboken resident Dan Levinson, a certified food scientist, started brewing his own energy teas because he’d always had trouble concentrating, yet he was sick of drinking coffee and leery of most energy drinks. He got serious about his hobby after being diagnosed with pre-diabetes and suffering corporate burnout. That’s how Vibal Energy Tea began.
“I knew I had to make some major life changes, including cutting the sugar and snacks from my diet ASAP,” Levinson says. “But as a professional snackologist, this meant risking it all. I decided to follow my dreams to share my super energy teas with the world instead, so I could help other people live more focused, healthier, happier lives.”
He calls his teas “the perfect all-day pick-me-up.” They are made with a light-green tea base, then infused with a “balanced boost”: caffeine from raw coffee seeds, for natural energy; theanine for “alpha focus” and anxiety relief; and ginseng for mental stamina and stress relief. The teas contain no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives. They come in Wild Honey, Lemonade, Pomegranate, Tropical Punch and Spicy Ginger.
Vibal Energy Teas are available on Amazon, at select stores in North New Jersey and Manhattan, and at DrinkVibal.com.
