When you drink a cup of matcha, you will notice that your awareness improves, which is great from when you’ve got an important work deadline, to when you’re meditating on the top of mount fuji with the zen Buddhist monks.
The caffeine coupled with the L-theanine will also give you a sustained energy boost to help you stay attentive whilst not having spikes of energy than feeling exhausted afterward.
This can be especially useful for creatives who thrive on mental clarity and ‘get in the zone’ for long periods of time to reach those eureka! moments.
