Chinese teas are natural adaptogens, meaning they help our bodies manage the impact of stress and restore health and balance. They are also natural nootropics or 'cognitive enhancers', boosting brain function and increasing alertness.

Chinese teas contains a unique amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine works by crossing the blood-brain barrier and increasing neurotransmitter levels of GABA, serotonin, and dopamine. This leads to improved mood and mental clarity. L-theanine’s neuroprotective effects also promote alpha brainwave activity thought to put us in a relaxed yet focused state.
