SRINA Gotu Kola herbal Green Tea (Centella asiatica) -- COGNITIVE RESPONSES

Gotu Kola has been used as a medicinal herb for thousands of years in China, India, and Indonesia. A brain tonic, Gotu Kola, is recommended for nervous disorders and to aid intelligence and memory.

SRINA Ayurveda herbal teas are certified organic high antioxidant green tea blended with Ayurveda herbs. Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health, designed to help people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. The word Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life or lifespan, and veda, meaning knowledge. Ayurveda has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years and has recently become popular in Western cultures.  Srina’s herbal teas are grounded in Ayurveda’s basic principle: to prevent and treat illness by maintaining a balance in the mind, body, consciousness and spirit through healthy drinking, diet, lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.

Throughout the world many countries harness natural resources to supplement food and other nutrients required to maintain good health and well-being. As countries became more developed and independent, traditional values and knowledge of healing through natural food were viewed as indigenous, or simply my grandmother’s healing recipe. Today we view health as a global issue forcing countries to once again turn to nature for the maintenance of overall health.


I want some SUGAR in my TEA…


To all of you out there with a sweet tooth, including myself, for many years, our spring-time focus is on the addictive white or brown delight called SUGAR.  Next month, our SRINA subscription will focus on the deconstruction of our sugar cravings! Recently, we had an exciting afternoon in Brooklyn sharing SRINA Tea with the lovely Sonia Jackson Myles & The Sister Accord, where we challenged the audience of women and high school girls to sip their first taste of SRINA tea without sugar. “Are you kidding me, Monaqui? I want some sugar in my tea!” was the response of one of the young ladies attending the event. I shared that I completely understand as a recovering sugar lover. My early tea drinking days included at least 1 teaspoon of sugar in my tea. However, after years of sipping SRINA organic green tea leaves, I have come to need only two ingredients in my cup… tea leaves and water. I have come to appreciate the crisp, earthy, and smooth taste of organic green tea leaves freshly brewed in my cup. I realized that my reason for drowning my tea with the addictive white/brown delight in the past was often due to the bitter, hard taste of many commercial green teas without sugar. I needed sugar in my tea to make it taste better and come alive. These days I simply drop a teaspoon of Srina green tea leaves in my cup, pour hot water and enjoy. Over time, I have slowly re-educated my palate to be a discerning tea drinker.  Does your palate require a sweetener in your tea to make it taste better? As we approach Spring, let’s all take the SRINA palate challenge — try your tea without sugar or any sweetener.  Do you enjoy the taste?  Can your tea stand alone with nothing but water?  Can you drink and enjoy the pure, natural taste?      



This International Women's Day, we are celebrating the birth of SRINA Tea.

On March 8, 2002, I started off as an invited guest of the United Nations on a journey to SouthEast Asia to speak on "The Commonalities of Women: We Are More Alike Than Different." My goal was to bring women together from all over the world 🌎 to celebrate our shared values as mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, and friends. Over a decade later, we are still sharing tea and community. Let's raise our tea cups to the mantra that women are stronger together!  We are more alike than we are different.
