Morning Thunder, pyu pyu

Or perhaps I should say bzzt bzzt. In any case, this is such a momentous occasion that it warrants a blog post.

I woke up this morning and realized that I had a package waiting for me in the front office. It actually arrived the other day but the office was closed due to the holiday, curse you holiday! I threw on my clothes and braved the blistering cold wind, and let me tell you, it was worth it. I now have in my possession 6 boxes of Morning Thunder, the bane of fatigue. Here it is in all of its cardboard boxness glory, quite exciting I know.

Why 6 boxes of Morning Thunder you ask? Wegmans has been sold out of this tea for about two months now. I actually had to resort to drinking wheatgrass! Wheatgrass! Yes wheatgrass is healthy, but the taste is a little lacking…unless you like drinking freshly mowed lawn. I am still not convinced of the energy inducing powers that wheatgrass is supposed to have, although I was able to work until 6:00am yesterday after drinking a shot of wheatgrass. I am not sure if that was due to the wheatgrass or my stubbornness to finish my video tutorial…I chalk it up to stubbornness.

The reason I started drinking Morning Thunder in the first place was because I was addicted to energy drinks. I used to drink 1-2 energy drinks per day. I’ve heard of people drinking 8+ in one day, but that is just crazy. Drinking energy drinks made me extremely tired when I wasn’t drinking them, cue zombie mode. Usually the next day I would completely crash, so to remedy that I would drink more energy drinks, thus feeding the vicious cycle. I actually got to the point where I would fall asleep while drinking an energy drink. Call me crazy, but that didn’t seem good. After a few posts on Facebook, Tyler Walpole, a fellow illustrator, told me to use Morning Thunder as a replacement for energy drinks. Morning Thunder is a zero calorie black tea that contains caffeine. How much caffeine does it have? It has less caffeine than Cola. I can drink one cup of Morning Thunder in the morning (:O) and feel awake and refreshed for the entire day. Thank you Morning Thunder, you have saved my life.

  1. I don’t know. It’s a lot funnier to see you drink the wheatgrass but I’m all for you not drinking the energy drinks anymore!

  2. nice! love how you drank that! and i just can quote cat “I’m all for you not drinking the energy drinks anymore!”
    i’m a bit addicted myself to energy drinks….

    • Russ – Don’t know, I don’t drink regular black tea. Maybe the site says?

      Update – I just checked the site and it says it combines black tea with yerba mate, so I guess that is the difference.

  3. Maaan, morning thunder is awesome but what you need is Fast Lane tea. Don’t know if you can still buy it because i think its discontinued… But I grabbed like 12 boxes off some website. You should get some of that if you neeeed that boost :O.

  4. I would like to say that this post really forced me to do so! I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.

  5. Yup, energy drinks are evil. I think that’s why Isaac gained so much weight in Texas cause he was drinking 2 or 3 a day! Now that he stopped, he dropped that 20 pounds fast!

  6. let me know if the morning thunder works, daarken. I currently run on 2 large cups of coffee a day and am in need of a substitute.

  7. Nice man.. wheat grass works so well as a kick start and it is natural not like the chemical garbage out there.. I think everyone makes that face when drinking it ahhaha awesome
