The power of nature
TENZING believe the best source of energy is nature itself. The brand have travelled the world to find the best natural ingredients. It was in the Himalayas they discovered an energising brew. Chosen in honour of the late Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, TENZING was born.
TENZING is made up of six key ingredients sourced from nature:
80mg of naturally stimulating caffeine extracted from raw, unroasted beans.
Sourced from the Amazon basin, known to improve concentration and increase alertness.
Energising carbohydrates from biodiverse farms in the Netherlands.
Himalayan Rock Salt
50mg of sodium, electrolytes and minerals directly from the Himalayan foothills.
Picked in Kenya’s Rift Valley because of it’s richness in the amino acid L-Theanine.
A staple on Everest expeditions, packed with nutrients that revive and refresh.
So what does it taste like?
I disliked the taste at first. It’s quite bitter and similar to coffee (I hate coffee). TENZING is sharp and hits the back of throat. However, the aftertaste is really sweet. This stark contrast left me intrigued. I persevered and I’m glad I did! After a few slurps, I got a real taste for the flavour and ended up enjoying it.
How does TENZING compare to other energy drinks?
The most obvious comparisons would be TENZING is healthier and contains less calories. It’s £1.49 a can, which is expensive for its size. However, for a product that contains such a wide range of ingredients I thought it would be more expensive.
I try not to drink energy drinks too often, but every once in a while I pull an all-nighter and stock up. Although it’s smaller than its competitors, TENZING is far superior in terms of energy. The brand were kind enough to send us three cans; I had two and Iain had one. I had the drink on two separate occasions, both of which required longer working hours than normal. It was around the mid-afternoon slump I tried them and I geniunely felt energised after drinking it. I think Iain did the same and enjoyed his too. You can find TENZING at Tesco and Holland & Barrett. You can also get the drinks delivered to you if you live in the UK.
Other cool things
Remember earlier when I said the brand is named after a Sherpa? Tenzing Norgay was one the first two men to reach the summit of Mount Everest. TENZING work closely with his family on environmental projects, in which they invest 5% of their profits. Pretty neat, huh?
They’re eco-conscious too, they save 42% of CO2 emissions by blending and bottling the drinks in the Netherlands. Thanks to the Maas River, TENZING travels to London by boat. Once in London, they get around by bike! In addition to that, their cans are all 100% recyclable making them perfect for the eco-friendly vegan.
