As you know, we’re obsessed with matcha… but we need to talk about something that hugely lends to matcha’s magic — L-Theanine!
Let’s start with the basics.
What is this “L-Theanine” we’re speaking so highly of?
L-Theanine (also known as Theanine) is an amino acid that is most commonly found in teas. Junbi matcha green tea is shade-grown in the weeks before harvest, which makes the tea leaves rich in L-Theanine and results in a uniquely delicate umami flavor profile.
The high concentration of L-Theanine in Junbi matcha helps your body gradually absorb caffeine over a period of 4-6 hours rather than all at once, cancelling out the not-so-desirable side effects such as the jitters or that dreaded afternoon crash!
In addition to kissing those caffeine jitters and crash good-bye, you can say hello to increased focus & concentration, a boost in your immune system, enhanced cognitive performance, stress-reducing effects, improved sleep quality, and much more!
As you can see, there’s so matcha to love about L-Theanine paired with Caffeine! Fuel your body with clean energy and natural goodness from our traditional stone-ground matcha.
