I got this interesting tea recently. It is a high-altitude green tea rolled around a 'Tibetan tea rose' which is apparently the flower of a rare plant called Rhodiola rosea. Rhodiola is supposed to have energizing/adaptogen effects.

Compared with normal green tea, I found that the tea with Rhodiola in it gave a more clear headed, long lasting stimulation. I found the effects more similar to yerba mate than to normal green tea. Less jitteriness, more alertness.
