For over 800 years Japanese Matcha Green Tea has been used by Zen Buddhist monks to enhance their meditation enabling them to relax their minds but still remain energised. Here’s the science-y bit! – This is said to be due to the amino acid L-Theanine contained in the Matcha leaves. L-Theanine boosts alpha waves (the brain waves present in deep relaxation) and promotes alert relaxation. L-Theanine has had significant clinical results for not only naturally calming the brain but focusing it too.
L-Theanine increases the production of the two chemicals dopamine and serotonin which in turn serve to enhance mood, promote better concentration and improve memory – what’s not to love!
We drink OMG Tea every day at the studio to keep ourselves healthy and alert.
