What is Loaded Tea? 

Loaded tea, also known as boosted tea, is a colorful drink made up of tea, caffeine additives, supplements, and vitamins. As the name implies, it is meant to be loaded with ingredients. These teas are claimed to deliver health benefits like enhanced performance and mental clarity. Some people believe loaded teas can also help boost metabolism and suppress hunger.

With how visually appealing the drinks are, it is no surprise why loaded teas have exploded in popularity in recent years. You can now find a variety of recipes on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok.

When it comes to recipes, there are many different ways to make loaded tea. In fact, there is not one specific recipe for it. However, many recipes will typically call for a specific tea concentrate. In this recipe, we will be using Waka's green instant tea powder for our tea base.
