L-theanine is found almost exclusively in tea, and it can have many beneficial effects on the body and mind. It also is responsible for this sweet umami flavor in Japanese green teas. The teas that are highest in l-theanine are Gyokuro and matcha. This amino acid was first identified by researchers in Kyoto that were studying the leaves of Gyokuro. Here are 4 teas we selected for their high L-theanine content and amazing taste!
