Tea: The Natural Way To A Clear Mind
You know that it's all in your mind - small decisions here and there that multiply faster than you think, lifelong dreams that sometimes seem so real and yet in a split second seem to wander off completely. You know your mind can one day be a mine of ideas and suddenly a mountain of data. So what better way to begin any hurdle than having things clearer in your head? At the end of the day, it all boils down to having a clear mind. Here is a world of difference between simply looking and truly seeing, between hearing and listening, between capturing information and crystallizing ideas.
When your head is clear, it means you're in place and everything around you falls in place as well. It means both your feet are on the ground - you're quiet but strong, you're calm but collected. It also means you're alert and ready to take on anything on your path.

And just as you're perfectly settled , Theanine raises your level of mental alertness by stimulating your brain to increase its production of alpha brain waves. The effect is higher mental focus, better concentration and sharper memory. Studies have also pointed out how Theanine could effectively promote creativity Now that's when the miracle of Theanine unfolds. The unique combination of relaxation and alertness , of increasing mental sharpness while at your most comfortable state of mind and body, results in this renewed clarity of thought and mental vitality. Cup after cup after cup, the power of the leaf brings you to your natural groove.

Scientific research has validated the link between Theanine and a perfect state of calmness. Theanine is the very reason why you're not as hyperactive when you drink tea as compared to when you drink coffees. But it's also the reason why you don't feel sleepy when drinking tea. In short, it's the Theanine in your cup of tea that calms you in just the right way to put you in place and bring you to your comfort.
