Raspberry Passion Perfect Energy Tea Ingredients
Assam Black Tea
Assam Black tea is a black tea named after the region of its production: Assam, India; one of the only two areas in the world with native tea plants. Assam Black tea is one of the most recognized teas in the world, and is characterized by its rich body, briskness, malty flavor and strong, bright color.
Like all black teas, Assam Black tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, but this type is a specific variety known as assamica. Unlike most highland tea varieties, Assam Black tea is grown at or near sea level. Assam Black tea is typically harvested twice, in a "first flush" and a "second flush," which produces leaves with a golden tip and a sweeter, full-bodied flavor.
Green Tea Leaf
Green tea is made from the unfermented leaves of Camellia sinensis, the same plant that gives us black and oolong teas. All teas from Camellia sinensis supply antioxidants, but because green tea is the least processed, it is said to contain the most antioxidant polyphenols, which are responsible for its many health benefits.
Hibiscus is a large genus of about 200 flowering plants native to warm, temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Used as a primary ingredient in many herbal beverages, hibiscus flower is also used by herbalists to support bowel function and urination. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, hibiscus is used to support skin health.
Stevia is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family native to subtropical and tropical South America and Central America. The leaf is used primarily as a sweetener in South America. Locals there use it as a substitute for sugar for those who can't use sugar. Various glycosides, including stevoside - which is about 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar - provide the sweetness. It is widely used as a non-sugar sweetener in other areas of the world, particularly in Japan.
Sage leaf (Salvia officinalis) is regarded by Ayurveda as specific for calming the heart, excessive desires and passions. In addition to the herb's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, centuries-old theories that sage can improve memory appear to be borne out by modern research, as participants in a recent study given sage oil tablets performed much better in a word recall test. Experts believe the active ingredient may boost levels of a chemical that helps transmit messages in the brain.

Ashwagandha root (Withania somnifera) comes from the Ashwagandha plant; a small shrub that is a relative of tomatoes and potatoes. Native to India and North Africa, Ashwagandha is traditionally used to support stress tolerance, performance and endurance.
While Ashwagandha is often called "winter cherry" and “Indian Ginseng”, this adaptogen is unrelated to the true Ginsengs, though it appears to share their many properties and actions; including its use as a stress-supporting herb.
In Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is considered a “grounding” herb, one that nourishes and regulates metabolic processes. As such, Ashwagandha is often used to support anxiety and stress relief, as well as to support positive moods. Additionally, Ashwagandha is also often used in Ayurveda as a tonic for men, as it may have positive effects on male reproductive health and is thought to mimic the effects of testosterone.
Gotu Kola, known as brahmi, which means godlike in the Ayurvedic tradition, it is used as an aid to meditation. In Ayurveda it is thought to help to balances circulation to the blood vessels of the skin, mucous membranes, nerves and brain.
