Green Mountain Wellness Collection

Being a BzzAgent, I get to try many great products! I recently received ,at no cost, the Green Mountain Wellness Collection to try. This new variety of coffee features two new great brews that I sampled. The first is the Focus Blend, which contains 50mg of L-Theanine in every 8 fl. oz. serving. Green Mountain states that ,"a great cup of coffee often helps you get the right perspective." There is little information about the Focus Blend beyond that statement.  L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea.  There are some studies that have shown that L-theanine has relaxant properties. Therefore, I believe  what Green Mountain is suggesting , without directly stating, is that the Focus Blend may help one to relax.  The coffee , like all Green Mountain brews, is rich and delicious, and the addition of L-Theanine did not affect the flavor. Although I did enjoy the Focus Blend variety, I did not experience any difference in focus, but I also happen to be a very methodical and focused individual to begin with. I would suggest one give the Focus Blend a try , and perhaps one will find that it ,indeed,does help one to relax and focus.

The second selection that I tried is the Antioxidant Blend ,which contains vitamins C and E.  A significant amount of research has been done on both these vitamins which yield conflicting results on their effectiveness as antioxidants. I would suggest that one consult with his or her physician regarding the use of supplements. The Antioxidant Blend delivers a delicious cup of coffee, also smooth and rich like the Focus Blend. The addition of the C and E is undetectable.

The Wellness Collection contains only Fair Trade Certified coffees. One can purchase the Wellness Collection online at online at and
