1. Gingery Hot Tea 
An Elephant Never Forgets is wonderful when hot, and when prepared like this, helps to warm up the brain and the body. 
2 tbsp. An Elephant Never Forgets 
1 quart hot water 
4 slices fresh ginger root 
A fresh mandarin orange, peeled and separated
Steep the tea leaves in the water, along with the ginger slices and tangerine. For more fruit flavor, chop the tangerine pieces so that more juice is released, or crush the fruit into the water. 


A cup of hot tea with ginger slices.

2. Brainy Milk Tea 
If you like your tea creamier, try this milk tea version. I used almond milk in this recipe, but you can use your favorite dairy or plant-based milk. With the dates and cinnamon, it has a bit of a North Indian flair. 
3 cups hot water 
1 cup milk of choice
2 Medjool dates, pitted and broken up  
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon 
Steep the tea leaves in the water, along with the dates (crushing them will yield more flavor. When it's done steeping, add in the milk and cinnamon, press, and serve. 
3. Cold Brew Apple Tea 
An Elephant Never Forgets is wonderfully refreshing when iced. If you're looking to cool off, or just want something that's soothing while also energizing, try this!
1 quart cold water 
1/2 to a whole organic apple, cored and sliced
A few lemon slices
1 sprig fresh mint 
Small sprig fresh rosemary
In a large glass pitcher or mason jar, place the apple slices, lemon, and herb sprigs and gently muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon. Pour in the water and add the tea leaves, and then steep the tea leaves, fruits, and herbs in the water for 2 to 4 hours in the refrigerator. 
Serve over ice in tall glasses, and garnish with any leftover fruit and herbs. 
4. Brain Power Smoothie 
This smoothie is a great way to boost your brain power! You may choose to steep the tea for a shorter period of time (half an hour) if you want less of an herbal flavor.
2 cups iced An Elephant Never Forgets tea 
1 cup kale or spinach (choose the latter if you prefer less bitterness)
1.5 frozen bananas 
1 organic apple, cored, chopped and frozen 

Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender, garnish with blueberries (if desired), and serve.

5. Genius Juice 
This juice is a powerhouse beverage! You might think it's hard to top fresh vegetable juice when it comes to health benefits, but this recipe does that. It will leave you feeling wonderful! 
Note: When it comes to juicing, a slow masticating juicer is the best type of juicer for extract the maximum amount of nutrients, enzymes, and overall health benefits. If you don't already have one, you can grab one here
2 cups brewed and chilled An Elephant Never Forgets tea 
2 lemons, peeled 
1/8 small green cabbage 
1" fresh ginger root
