Matcha Tea has an impressive history that goes back over a thousand years. Japanese monks who considered meditation important also realize the benefit of staying alert. They learned that Matcha Tea allowed them to be focused without being “wired.” In today’s coffee-crazed culture, this may seem like a dichotomy but, science has proven what these ancient monks experienced. A unique Amino Acid called L-Theanine has been proven to promote relaxation while keeping brain function stimulated. This amino acid is also believed to help memory and learning. The great news is that Matcha Tea has up to 5 times more L-Theanine Amino Acid than common black and green teas. This helps buffer the caffeine content and deliver amazing concentration and focus without the jitters of other caffeinated beverages.
