Have you tried Matcha before?  This is basically a green tea in powder form.  I did some research and found this brand to get good reviews.

Here is what they claim:

The benefits of drinking our Matcha Green Tea Powder
• – Boost metabolism & burns calories
• – Calms and relaxes you from stress or anxiety
• – Enhances your ability to focus for long periods of time
• – Long, clean, organic energy without the jitters
• – Over 1300 antioxidants

I have been adding about a teaspoon of this powder to my morning vegan protein powder.  I recently ran out of my almond milk, so I just used 1 teaspoon of the powder with 12 ounces of water and a few ice cubes.  It made a surprisingly refreshing cold drink! The green tea taste is smooth and enjoyable.  I may add some agave syrup to give it a little sweetness!
