Zen Buddhist monks are to blame for the coming into being of this wonderful preparation of Camellia Sinensis, otherwise known as green tea. As part of ritual, they grew green tea for ceremonial and meditative use that enabled them to become more centred.
Green tea was first cultivated "sencha" or under the full power of the sun but was later on grown "matcha" or under shade which allowed it to produce higher levels of antioxidants and l-theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation and calm. We're not sure if the monks purposely grew under the shade to increase the l-theanine but we do know that the synergy of caffeine and l-theanine is what gives Matcha it's unique effects on the mind and body.
