Ingredients & Benefits:
Sencha is a very popular Japanese whole-leaf green tea that offers a fresh, grassy flavor. It’s beautiful green color can be steeped longer for brighter color and more intense flavor. Sencha is also naturally caffeinated. Green tea has a good amount of catechins, which are free-radical-fighting antioxidants. Antioxidants benefit your brain by protecting your cells from damage.
Organic Lemon Verbena
Lemon Verbena leaves provide a fresh, lemony flavor that pairs really well with sencha’s flavor. Native to South America, this plant has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Lemon Verbena is known for its soothing, anti-stress properties from the compound verbascoside.
Ginger has been used in cooking, tea, and in medicines for a very long time. Many of ginger’s benefits come from the compound gingerol, which is a powerful antioxidant. Ginger has been the star of some interesting new studies which have shown ginger may help improve brain function and slow the decline in brain function due to age.
Another, bright, citrus flavor, lemongrass adds another big boost of lemon taste to this tea blend. Aside from lovely flavor, lemongrass has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are important in maintaining a healthy brain.
Organic Orange Peel
With their bright, fresh, citrus flavor, orange peels are at the top of our ingredients list. Not only are they flavorful, but orange peels are high in vitamin C and plant compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols may help protect the brain against cognitive decline.
Organic Eleuthero Root (Ginseng)
Who doesn’t love a little ginseng in their tea? The root of this plan has a variety of health benefits, one of which is the potential to help maintain a healthy brain. Ginseng may have the power to boost your mood and your memory. Ginseng may leave a little bitterness to this tea, so don’t let it steep too long.
What goes better together than citrus and mint? Spearmint not only adds a fresh, zesty taste to this tea blend, but it also contains antioxidant properties and compounds that may help reduce stress and improve your memory.
Organic Ginkgo Leaf
Ginkgo biloba leaf is harvested from an ancient Chinese tree. It’s benefits include anti-inflammatory properties as well as the potential to improve your mood and help maintain a healthy brain function. Ginkgo has a sweet, nutty taste that adds depth to this otherwise bright, leafy tea.
Our Organic Memory-Boost Sencha Blend has an energizing citrus flavor. With lemon verbena, lemongrass, and orange peel, this tea will make you feel like you’re in the middle of a lemon tree garden. You’ll also get a little hint of spearmint. The spicy undertones from ginger, as well as the earthy notes from ginkgo and ginseng round out the flavor nicely.
Depending on your needs, we can package this tea blend with whatever name you choose. You can order this tea in pyramid sachets, or as loose leaf.
