Tea has been a staple drink in many cultures for hundreds of years becoming an essential part of life. There are so many benefits to having a cup of tea that it has even become part of study rituals in countries like India, China, and Japan. But why is tea a good companion for focus, and what are the best teas for concentration? 

Drinking a cup of tea has many proven benefits from lowering blood pressure to protecting your teeth but what are some of the links to concentration and brain power:

  1. Drinking tea can protect the brain and its functions like concentration, memorization, and more!
  2. Lowering blood pressure can lead to a more relaxed state of concentration

Matcha tea is quickly becoming one of the most popular types of tea, and you can now find it in coffee shops almost everywhere. It is a type of green tea originally from Japan, made from dried green tea leaves ground into a fine powder. 

It contains L-theanine, a kind of amino acid that can help with focus, motor skills, concentration, and staying alert. The other thing that makes matcha special is that it also has a calming effect on stress. Meaning you can focus without fear or adding to your nerves. 

This makes it a great companion tea for studying and concentrating on tasks, it’s one of our favorites at Univers du Thé where we make an effort to always have Japanese matcha available.
