Tea: Yeah or Meh?

What sets green tea apart from coffee?

Even though both beverages contain significant concentrations of caffeine. Yet tea is generally perceived as a less stimulating drink than coffee.

L-theanine, an amino acid that is present in tea rather than coffee, exerts a relaxing effect. While caffeine affects dopamine levels, l-theanine provides inhibitory impacts similar to those of the neurotransmitter GABA. Theanine influences cognitive functions.

🌱 Perhaps the most well-known effect of l-theanine is to increase alpha activity in the brain! So, what is it? It’s a state of peacefulness, and ease, without being drowsy!

Evidence has been found in favour of the combined effects of caffeine and l-theanine in the first 2 hours after ingestion. This combination improves attention-shifting accuracy and sensory awareness.
