As much as I love coffee, I equally love tea. And just like my coffee, I am very picky about my tea. It has to be flavorful and leave me feeling ready for whatever may come my way. When I received an email from an entrepreneur about trying out his new tea blend I was intrigued. On paper, er screen, it sounded great- organic, fair trade, brain boosting, all the right words were there. But would it pass the test of these particular taste buds?
CogniTea is an all-natural tea that is meant to promote mental clarity and focus. It is make with a unique blend of teas, herbs, and L-Theanine, an amino acid extracted from green tea.
I typically would not reach for herbal tea, since I have tried it before and it never really gave me the get up and go feeling I needed. But CogniTea is not your average herbal blend. It has a specific ratio of the Caffeine to L-Theanine. That means it helps reduce stress while promoting mental health, creative thinking, and cognitive performance.
My worse time of day is the afternoon. Around 3pm I am d-r-a-g-g-i-n-g. Therefore, it was the perfect time to put this tea to the test. I steeped mine for 10 minutes (they recommend steeping it for that long or longer). I sweetened it with a natural non-GMO zero calorie sweetener and a squeeze of local honey.
The taste was crisp, refreshing and not bitter. I felt re-energized and more alert. The dragging feeling that was pulling on me went away. After the initial peak of the tea, I did not feel a crash. That in itself was amazing because typically you feel that crash after the energy burst.
I repeated this experiment the next 2 days with the same results. My afternoon drag turned into my afternoon take on the world! Herbal tea, who would have thought right? CongiTea made a believer out of me and now I don't have to suffer through another afternoon feeling completely exhausted!
