Overview

Company Overview

CogniTea is a new healthy food startup that is driven to reinvent tea and power people towards their goals.

Our all-natural tea promotes mental clarity and sustained energy, offering a healthy, smart replacement for coffee — all without the typical crash, jitters, or headache.

We started the company to make a tea that is functional, something that people use when they want “productive energy” when at work to concentrate, while working out to get in the zone, or wherever they need more energy and focus.
