This is a tea my husband and I enjoy somewhat regularly after he formulated it some months ago. It contains 2 medicinal herbs, ginko leaf and brahmi. These are often taken to improve memory, ginko can also improve circulation as it thins the blood slightly.
Your mileage may vary depending on your sensitivity to the ingredients. Some people get great memory improvements, others notice no difference. It depends on your individual variables.
You can find Ginko and Brahmi in health food stores or stores specializing in herbs or natural medicines, this recipe requires the natural leaves (not extracts or supplement form). If you’re having trouble finding it you may need to order online.
Here’s how to make it….

2 Tbsp Green Tea Leaves
- Place Herbs (pinch of each), loose green tea and a lemon wedge in a teapot
- Add boiling water
- Allow to brew for 15 minutes
- Strain leaves and serve with extra lemon
The taste is good and not bitter at all. It will still taste great without lemon too.
