Herbal tea recommendation?

I've eliminated caffeine from my life for medical reasons and am hoping to find a caffeine-free tea that has the brain-function benefits of ginkgo biloba. If it has a mild to moderate stimulant effect, that's OK, but not necessary; but I *don't* want a calming tea. I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks.

    Cognition enhancers like Ginkgo biloba are Panax ginseng and Paeonia lactiflora. Panax is a tonic and adaptogenic which will not sedate but have a tonifying effect on your body and help cope with stressors. You can combine this with licorice or aniseed or any other aromtaic herbs that you fancy. I usually combine Panax with ginger and cinnamon in the winter. Ginger and cinnamon enhance circulation and increase tissue perfusion (just like ginkgo).

    I find Rooibos or Red Bush tea is just as good as a normal cuppa; I couldn't live without it. Not sure about having the same benefits as ginkgo biloba though. Peppermint is supposed to be stimulating too…

    Ginseng tea, but only American ginseng from Wisconsin. Good for the brain, with a mild, non-addicting stimulant. The only downside is that it tastes like a rock. I'm serious. Have you ever sucked on a rock. Same taste. But, you get used to it. It's pretty good for you. Give it a try.

    Has anybody heard if Herbal tea’s are bad for your teeth and aside from no Caffine, what are the benifits of drinking them…

    I think the herbal teas that are supposed to be bad for your teeth are the ones containing the citrus flavours or the fruity teas.
