Do you or your children suffer anxiety issues or lapses in concentration or both? If so, drinking just one cup of high-quality matcha green tea every day may help. Tea leaves contain an important amino acid called L-theanine which plays an important role in cognitive performance, mental focus and stress reduction.
Because matcha green tea includes the entire tea leaf ground into an ultra-fine powder, matcha tea contains nature’s highest source of L-theanine. Studies also suggest the presence of caffeine enhances the effects of L-theanine. Matcha naturally contains both substances working synergistically just as nature intended.
The most abundant natural source of L-theanine (i.e. not found as an isolated substance) is high-quality, ceremonial grade matcha tea like our Tea Lover’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha. As the grade of matcha drops slightly — say to a latte grade like our Barista’s Matcha — the L-theanine content also drops and the taste becomes less smooth and somewhat more astringent. As such, the price per gram should drop accordingly.
Keep in mind, at 16mg/g and 13mg/g respectively, both the ceremonial and latte grades of My Matcha Life tea mentioned here are significantly higher in L-theanine than most other matcha brands currently available. Generally, most ceremonial grades contain only about 10mg of L-theanine per gram of tea, while latte grades contain approx. 25% less at 7.5mg per gram. Add My Matcha Life matcha to your morning yogurt, cereals or breakfast smoothies. Your kids will be more focused and ready for school. And you can look forward to a less stressful day!
