We know life can be draining, but with a warm cup of any of our Confesion Worthy™ teas you will not only feel blissful and relaxed but you will also be bettering your brain—one sip at a time! We might be biased, but we think tea is the most magical beverage in the world, offering a multitude of health benefits to help you stay focused, be at ease, and keep healthy! Read below on the different ways tea can boost your brain and your health.
Productivity & Stress Relief
Ditch the jitters and stomach problems of coffee and switch to our Confession Worthy™ teas! With caffeine and L-theanine (1), tea provides a divine pair of energy and focus that gives you a zen calm versus the manic pacing of coffee. Tea has a paradoxical effect according to Andrew Scholey, a psychopharmacologist at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, “tea is calming, but alerting at the same time," Studies have shown that people who consume L-theanine have lower cortisol levels and reported feeling more relaxed after performing stress-inducing tasks (2).
According to Dr. Feng Lei from the National University of Singapore, “drinking tea regularly has a protective effect against age-related decline in brain organization” (3). Whether you are looking for an overall increase in brain power or looking to take a preventive approach, tea remains an incredible beverage! Dr. Feng Lei’s study led in 2019 by researchers from the National University of Singapore studied 36 adults through neuro-imaging and discovered that regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions. Dr. Feng Lei thinks of this similar to cars on a road - “When a road system is better organized, the movement of vehicles and passengers is more efficient and uses less resources. Similarly, when the connections between brain regions are more structured, information processing can be performed more efficiently” (4). Researchers have also found drinking tea lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol and evidence of long-term health benefits is emerging, too: drinking at least 100 millilitres (about half a cup) of green tea a day seems to lower the risk of developing depression and dementia (5).
