L-theanine is a natural component found almost exclusively in tea. It is shown to promote alpha brain waves in the brain which are associated with a relaxed yet alert state of mind. This state is often predominant in successful sportspeople. With a relaxed yet alert state of mind, a desirable state for thinking and operating is created. Gail Owen, a bio psychologist and Lead Scientist at the Beverages Global Technology Centre in the United Kingdom and says “Research is showing that the alertness felt by drinking tea throughout the day that has always been attributed to the existence of caffeine is now being associated to another component in tea which is responsible for the unique effect that people feel from tea and that is L-theanine."
The history of Jasmine Green Tea goes way back to the third century, when the Persians brought the jasmine plant to China. However, it was only during the Song Dynasty (960-1270AD) that Jasmine Tea came into existence. It was not the tea itself that spread across the nation, but the medical properties of jasmine. It was commonly seen as a medicine used to cure various diseases and solve health problems in China. It has now become the most popular scented tea in the world.
Jasmine tea is made from green tea leaves that are scented with jasmine flowers. The flowers are grown at high elevations in mountainous Fujian Province in China. They are harvested in the spring and stored until early summer when the flowers are in bloom. The jasmine flowers are picked during the day and stored in a cool place until nightfall. After the flowers bloom at night, they are layered over the green tea leaves for four or more hours. This scenting process may repeat numerous times to allow the tea leaves to fully absorb the fragrance the tea leaves.
