Think Straight is a blend of Lemongrass, lemonbalm, lemon verbena & yerba mate; these are herbs known for both their calming effects & stimulating properties.
An ideal alternative to coffee, this formulation nourishes the nervous system and assists in concentration. It’s perfect as a refreshing iced tea also!
Think Straight tea contains mate [pronounced mar – tay], Chimarrão, Tererê and other deviations, customarily drunk in subtropical South America, particularly north eastern Bolivia, Argentina, South Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. The flavour of brewed mate tastes like an infusion of root vegetables, herbs and cut grass and is evocative of some varieties of camellia senesis. Some consider the flavour to be very pleasant but it is mostly bitter if brewed in boiling water. We combine mate together with our three lemon scented herbs which mask any preparation overkill from extended brewing. Preliminary limited studies of mate have shown that the mate xanthine cocktail is different from other plants containing caffeine, most significantly in its effects on muscle tissue, as opposed to those on the central nervous system, which are similar to those of other natural stimulants. The three xanthines: caffeine, theobromine and theophylline present in mate have been shown to have a relaxing effect on smooth muscle tissue, and a stimulating effect on myocardial [heart] tissue. As such, Think Straight Organic Smart Tea may be of benefit as an alternative for those people who cannot consume coffee and caffeine added beverages late in the day.
