Matcha reduces stress and improves mood
Matcha drinkers love the “Zen” feeling they get drinking this healthy beverage. The reason for this is that matcha contains the “L-theanine” – an amino acid that does amazing things to the brain.

This means that you are helping your body reduce stress, promote focus and improve your happiness.
