Tea & Memory

In ancient Greece, memory was personified and revered as Goddess Memory, or Mnemosyne.

Mnemosyne was the mother of the nine golden Muses and credited with inventing language. And, in the afterlife, she was one of two rivers that were crossed: if you led a heroic life you would drink from the waters of Mnemosyne; and if you didn’t, you would drink from her sister, the river known as Lethe, “forgetfulness.”

Memory is more than just memorization by rote; it is deeper and more complex and infinitely more dynamic, creative. Remembering is a creative, imaginative activity.

When we drink organic, loose-leaf tea–grown and harvested with love, of course–it not only nourishes our body, soul & creativity, it maintains cognitive function, acts as a memory enhancer and can prevent a decline in brain function

Green tea specifically prevents cognitive dysfunction and improves memory.

 

Have you tasted our Almond Matcha blend? Immerse in a sweet, nourishing cup of health and wellness with a flavor profile of an indulgent dessert. Scents of rich toffee, sultry chocolate, and creamy almond combine in this divine, naturally sweet green tea. 

Matcha is a wealth of antioxidants, an abundance of polyphenols, and  L-Theanine--an amino acid that increases alpha wave activity in the brain, reduces anxiety, and increases focus. Matcha alkalizes your body. Black Currants boast double the amount of antioxidants as blueberries and four times more vitamin C than oranges, while bolstering eye and joint health with anti-inflammatory qualities. While organic almonds are high in magnesium, the stevia leaves in this blend satisfy our desire for sweetness.
