Ever struggle to think of a creative idea? Go brew yourself a cuppa and think again; a new study indicates that the secret to a creative mind can be found in tea.
Tea drinking volunteers in the study immediately performed better than water drinking candidates in creative and cognitive exams. Initially, researchers believed the results to be down to the high dosage of caffeine and thiamine found in tea. However, these effects do not take place instantly and yet performance was rapidly boosted. The effect, in fact, is likely to be psychological.
Tea is likely to improve your mood and allow positivity to flow through your body. This, in turn, increases your brain’s cognitive ability. Think of it as the difference between going to work on a blue Monday or on a sunny Friday morning.
