The line comprises: Energise Cocoa + Ginger Biodegradable Tea Bags; Energise Guarana + Cayenne Protein Matcha; Perform Lemongrass + Mint Biodegradable Teabags; Perform Yerba + Ginseng Protein Matcha; Recover Berry + Gingko Biodegradable Teabags; and Recover Ginger + Turmeric Protein Matcha.

Using yerba mate as a hero ingredient, Whittle worked with sports scientists and master tea blenders to create unique blends for energy, performance and recovery. To test his own range, he consumed Athletic Tea instead of energy drinks, sports drinks or coffee when he broke the record for the fastest crossing of Iceland on foot in 2017, completing 17 marathons in ten days.

The Athletic Tea range has already been used by a number of elite sports teams, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, GB Triathlon and Wales Rugby Union.
