All four types of tea contain the unique amino acid theanine, which is found almost exclusively in the tea plant and has significant benefits for your mind, producing calming effects, an increased ability to focus and an improvement in learning capacity. The complexity of tea’s chemical makeup and its high level of antioxidants confer many health benefits. Just some of the actions drinking tea has shown to exert include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-tumour, hypolipidaemic (ability to lower blood pressure), thermogenic(increases metabolic rate), cognition-enhancing and anti-anxiety activities. It is no wonder, then, that after water, tea has become the most widely consumed beverage in the world.
