Episode #100: A cup of tea a day to keep the anxiety away! How tea can boost mental and brain health with special guest Simon Cheng, CEO & founder of Pique Tea

October 16, 2019

Tea is one of the most nutrient dense drinks on this planet, and filled with compounds and chemicals that are natural mental health and happiness boosters. Unfortunately, most tea sold on the market today is not pure, healthy, or even safe. So in this episode I interview Pique Tea founder and CEO Simon Cheng on how to find the best quality tea, the brain and mental health benefits of tea, how best to drink tea to get the full benefits, how many cups of tea we should drink a day, and so much more!

Bios:

 

The Honorable Shelyna V. Brown is a sought-after presenter, panelist, and trainer with over two decades of experience in the legal and leadership arenas. From a young age, growing up in a marginalized community, she saw first-hand the challenges and obstacles that those with similar backgrounds encountered in society. She came to the realization that in order to change the outcome, one had to have a place and a voice at the table.

Upon graduating from law school, Judge Brown served as a public defender fighting for all those who did not traditionally have a voice—the low income, the immigrant, those suffering from mental health challenges, anyone who did not have access to their constitutional right of appropriate representation. She argued several high-profile cases that were noted in the media and written about in local and regional publications. In 2011, California Governor Jerry Brown appointed Shelyna V. Brown to the bench in Santa Clara County.

Judge Brown has served on several boards and has been recognized for her excellence in advocacy and praised for her contributions to the community. She was awarded numerous honors and accolades, including Excellence in Advocacy from the 100 Black Women of Silicon Valley, the Ivy Rose Foundation named her the first recipient of the Distinguished Women of Silicon Valley Awards, and the Silicon Valley Business Journal listed her as one of the 100 Women of Influence. Judge Brown was honored by the Silicon Valley NAACP with the Wester Sweet Award for Legal Activism, she is the most recent recipient of the Santa Clara Law School Social Justice and Human Rights Award, and she received a Congressional Commendation from Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren.

From nonprofits to universities to global corporations including Stanford University, the Parent Project, and Gilead Sciences. Judge Brown uses her uncommon perspective as a superior court judge, certified mediator, entrepreneur, and master coach to inspire and equip individuals to meet and rise above all of life’s challenges.

Judge Brown received her bachelor of arts from University of California, Davis and her juris doctorate from Santa Clara University, School of Law where she is a well-known figure and frequent speaker and guest lecturer.

Judge Brown is dedicated community servant, advocate, and mentor. She welcomes and promotes opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds to visit her courtroom, to observe, ask questions, to learn about the legal profession, and to envision being a voice at the table.
