[Japanese Tea Instructor’s Recommendation] Won’t you start morning Matcha tea?
It's the season of new life in Japan, such as entering a new school or joining a new company, and there is a mixture of anticipation and anxiety.
At such times, I recommend the habit of drinking matcha in the morning to refresh your mood and get you through the day.
Wake up refreshed with matcha in the morning!
The best time to drink matcha is in the morning. This is because the "caffeine" in matcha has a stimulant effect. Drinking matcha with breakfast will help you wake up refreshed.
In addition, matcha contains "theanine," a relaxing ingredient that is not found in coffee, so matcha is recommended for those who want to get rid of caffeine but find its effects too strong.
If you have trouble getting out of bed or mornings, won't you try taking it in?
Matcha's Healthful Ingredients
We will explain in detail the healthful ingredients contained in matcha.
Central stimulant effect
The matcha has the ability to dispel drowsiness and clear the head. This is due to the effect of caffeine, which excites the central nervous system and stimulates the brain.
When tea is drunk, theanine is taken up by the brain and the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain fluctuates.
When measuring brain waves, the appearance of alpha waves is observed in the occipital and parietal regions.
Alpha waves are the brain waves typically seen during relaxation, and are scientific proof that "drinking tea makes you feel relaxed.
Relief of excitatory effects
Theanine ingestion is also known to alleviate the stimulant effects of caffeine.
