Warlike samurais drank matcha before an expedition as a natural energising drink. Matcha contains high amounts of L-theanine and other nutrients that have a positive impact on the immune system.
The level of energy after drinking a cup of matcha may persist over six hours. Despite the content of caffeine in matcha, there are no side effects after consumption. It is like drinking coffee but without the feeling of high pressure and nervousness later on. Jackpot!
A sense of inflow of energy is more stable than in the case of stimulation of coffee because caffeine is distributed in the blood in regular doses. There is also no risk of sense of outflow of energy, which consumers of strong coffee complain about. 80 milligrams of caffeine in a cup of matcha is equivalent of 90-150 milligrams in a serving of coffee.
