All About NoonBrew

We all know that draggy feeling when the afternoon creeps up. We search for that boost before realizing we snag a cup of coffee or energy drink rattling around a desk drawer. But if you’re a recovering insomniac or have the body type that coffee past noon sends you into a chronic recharge through the next day, erasing any hope of deep sleep that evening, then you’ve probably daydreamed about an afternoon boost that contains minimal caffeine…but actually works.

Of course, there are souls who claim a cup of green tea is sufficient to get them through, but for some, green tea is a walk in the park of the needed boost they truly need! It wasn’t until I began integrating chaga into my afternoon routine that I noticed a sustainable, yet gentle boost, to my afternoon—carrying me home just long enough, but short enough to hit the sheets ready for slumber.

But what if you took that gentler tea, added a dash of superfood, a handful of mushrooms, and some tried-and-true tested adaptogens to the mix? Now we’re talking! Let’s invite to the table, NoonBrew. A superfood organic tea made with 19 superfoods (chaga, maca, Reishi to name a few!), costing a third of a normal cup of coffee, a tasting like a refreshing gulp of lemon tea flavor. They say first impressions last, and already, we we’re intrigued.

Creators of Noon Brew

Born out of San Francisco, founders, Andrew and Alex, sought out to create an herbal, naturopathic-based formulation to beat that afternoon slump using their herbal background. With 5 million plus servings sold, it’ safe to say that Andrew and Alex must have achieved that perfect herbal-energy harmony! (1)

Overview of Noon Brew

NoonBrew’s Superfood Organic Tea is sugar free, non-GMO, dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and keto friendly that can be whipped into any cold or hot water, milk, or milk alternative. Add a dash of honey and voila! You have your afternoon fulfilled with clean, ethically sourced adaptogens and superfoods in carefully crafted proprietary blends.

Coming in a variety of packaging options (single pack, 3 pack, 5 pack), you can enjoy this for yourself or gift it to that colleague who never seems to meet those afternoon deadlines. Sharing is caring, but in instances like this, you might also benefit, too!

Superfood Organic Tea – Ingredients

What’s on the inside matters. NoonBrew prides themselves in maintaining non-GMO, organic quality ingredients to ensure maximum bioavailability, which means maximum benefit for you, the tired soul. Sweetened with monk fruit extract, you can feel comfortable knowing that your sugar levels will not spike compared those drinks you may get through a certain drive thru in the mornings (yea, we see you).

As a tea base, NoonBrew choose Oolong tea—an ancient powerhouse used for what seems, based upon research, for the millennia. An ancient Chinese remedy used to abate Alzheimer’s, regulate fat cell content, and improve metabolic rate during deep sleep. (2)  

Outside of the adaptogen and superfood proprietary blend, Andrew and Alex knew the importance of l-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in high-antioxidant teas that is known for its properties of improving cognitive function (lessening reaction time, decreasing errors), which means less mistakes for which task you are facing during your afternoon streak. (3) What else resides in NoonBrew’s blend?

Organic Oolong Tea

A root honoring its origins from China and Taiwan, Oolong tea comes in a varying of earthy to floral flavors, and a variety of colors (black to brown to green) depending upon the soil and coolness of the ambient air temperature; deeming Oolong tea the “wine of tea world.” (4) A study from 2019 found a statistically significant increase in a potent antioxidant molecule called, Epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG, in Oolong tea when compared to its green and white tea counterparts. (5,6)

Studies further suggest it improves metabolism, reduces the risk of type II diabetes, and boosts our immune system while adding that l-theanine benefit to boost and sustain our energy levels throughout the afternoon. Plus, we always love to dive into long-term benefits of all supplements we review. With Oolong there is a plethora of data suggesting that Oolong breaks down the harmful proteins that build up in our brain matter, leading to the despised Alzheimer’s that 6.2 million Americans over the age of 65 years old live with on the daily. (4,7)

Superfood Proprietary Blend

Turmeric: Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family, turmeric is known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, joint-lubricating properties. Because of such anti-inflammatory effects, turmeric also has an anti-cancer property since unregulated cell growth (i.e. cancer) is the result of an inflammatory-onset process. What better way to energize your body with an added long-term benefit? (8)

Ginger: Zingiber officinale, a medicinal root used since the conception of time, is known for its digestive aid, antioxidant properties, and has been suggested to improve the absorption of turmeric—providing a unique synergy in this superfood blend. (9)

Ginseng: Panax ginseng, a potent root from East Asia, have potent molecules called “ginsenosides” that are known for improved memory, antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory, and prevention of possible age-related memory dysfunction. (10)

Maca: Also known as Lepidium meyenii, this Peruvian wonder has been suggested to improve sex hormone regulation and increase libido. While that might not be totally helpful while at work, fail not. Maca also has been known to improve memory and concentration—a benefit when you’re pushing to get that afternoon deadline met. (11)

Schisandra: Schisandra chinensis, has the combined properties of ginger, maca, and ginseng put together! (12)

Adaptogen Proprietary Blend

Adaptogens have hit the mainstream market in a furry! A combination of roots and herbs that help your body better manage stress. (1)  Containing a combination of mushrooms, maca root, and lemon balm and ashwagandha herbs, there is something to be said about the power centuries-long knowledge in this single blend.

Mushroom Component

Reishi: In the Chinese culture, Reishi is known as the “herb of spiritual potency” that represents success and steadfastness in all areas of life—we love it. Reishi contains a multitude of essential amino acids as well as fatty acids that not only fuel our brain but add to its ability for repair and optimized daily functioning. Taken daily, studies have suggested Reishi holds a major anti-tumor and antioxidant properties—known to reduce tumor size in cancer patients significantly. (15)

Cordyceps: The mushroom world can be complicated, but if you ever have doubts about which mushroom is cordyceps, then remind yourself that the mushroom that appears like a literal Cheeto ® growing out of the soil. That is cordyceps! Try not to judge cordyceps by its appearance, for this mushroom is anything from the empty calories of a Cheeto ®. Referred to as “Himalayan Gold,” cordyceps does it all: energy-boosting, antioxidant, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, improves hormone balance, anti-microbial, and acts on our renal, liver, and cardiac organ systems. (16)

Lion’s Mane: The primal alpha of all mushrooms, Lion’s mane, is known for its powerful properties of encouraging neuronal cell growth, aiding in nervous system repair and maintain overall, long-term integrity. (17)

Chaga: A mushroom species that is born from the bark of live birch trees, chaga is not entirely known by its mechanism of action, but rather some of its life-saving effects observed over centuries-worth of use. From its ability to break down cancerous cells through a process called “apoptosis”, as well as providing lipid metabolism to establish healthy cell walls, think of chaga as the “insurance” for your body amongst the mushroom community. (18)

Adaptogen Component

Maca: Just as in the superfood proprietary blend, maca root is added into the adaptogen blend—ensuring you receive maximum benefit of its hormone-balancing, memory and learning benefits. (11)

Ashwagandha: Known scientifically as Withania somnifera, this powerful herbal, ayurvedic tonic has been known to lessen our stress response, enhance a calming mood, and been suggested to have memory-enhancing benefit in some scientific journals. (13)

Lemon Balm: Known for its anti-stress properties, Melissa officinalis, dates back over 2000 years with herbalists known to use it for nervous system support and enhancing memory. (14)

Customer Testimonies

NoonBrew has over 50,000+ customer reviews! In case you’re just now entering the world of herbal supplements, this is a ton compared to competitor brands who clock in a fiftieth of that—if even. With an average of 4.9/5 stars, we think NoonBrew is on to something here!

One delighted customer shares,

“Not sure how they do it but it works! I always hit a wall in the afternoon and don’t like drinking coffee, or any other hot beverage in the afternoon. This iced tea is the perfect solution, it’s like they read my mind or something. It’s very refreshing, tastes great with or without lemon, and provides just the amount of pick-me-up that I need without giving any of the coffee jitters. It also doesn’t leave you wired at night like coffee can. This stuff works as advertised! I wish the founders of this great product the best of luck!”

It’s so great to see another enlightened soul seek an alternative than the jolting caffeine cup of coffee. This customer found that not only does NoonBrew Superfood tea work, but it does so without leaving him up all night. Stay energized in the afternoon, fall into deep slumberous sleep in the evening.

Another customer shares that she not only loves it and feel energized, but that it prevents her from grabbing that bag of junk food in the afternoon—that’s fantastic!

“Prior to drinking noon brew daily, I was tired and looking for junk food to carry me through my stressful afternoons. NoonBrew keeps those cravings away and gives me a nice even energy that takes me through the evenings. I used to arrive home feeing lethargic, but now I feel energized and ready to tackle all of the evening chores at home. To top it off, I have an amazing sleep. This stuff will be a staple in my life from here on out. The few days that I didn’t drink it, I could feel the difference. Before I go, the taste is delicious. Just like iced tea.”

Another customer titled his reviews as “From Skeptic to Lifestyle Staple!” He shares,

“I only write reviews on 2 occasions, to warn other consumers or to make sure other consumers know how good a product is. And this is one of those good product scenarios. I’ll admit I was skeptical, but noonbrew has a permanent place in my lifestyle. I have no drop-off in energy during the workday, which allows me to transition right from work to working out. Lastly, I’m blown away by how much my sleep has improved. Since I started drinking noonbrew my whoop strap recoveries rarely leave the optimal recovery zone. Huge fan of noonbrew now!”

It’s incredible to see this product win over the most skeptical consumers out there.

The only negative reviews found were on Amazon from a few souls who made note of the taste. We would like to mention that some teas take a moment to get used to. We all have that one friend who “hated” the taste of tea but is now the tea connoisseur who won’t stop talking about tea. Plus, with our mainstream food industry boosting energy drinks and electrolytes powders with sugar that we have now gotten accustomed to, it is normal to have a period of adjustment to a more earthy, basic taste profile that our ancestors cherished on the daily.
