Organic Genmaicha with Matcha
Japanese Green Tea
Origin: Uji, Kyoto
Species: Yabukita

                    There is a lot people don't know about Genmaicha tea. The quality of the soil used ( organic or non-organic ), the location, growing techniques and conditions, and quality control all effect the potency. All of these things can effect the alkaloid content in the leaves. We have searched the globe to find THE BEST quality out there.

What most people don't know about Genmaicha tea with Matcha is that it contains far more than just Caffeine. In fact, there are a few psychoactive phytochemicals made by the plant. It contains theobromine , and l-theanine , which both demonstrate psychoactive properties.

Theobromine is a stimulant too, just like caffeine. Its effects are said to be less jittery than Caffeine. L-theanine on the other hand is my favorite. This awesome chemical has the ability to increase serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and glycine levels in multiple regions of the brain! The thing is that it's mostly soluble in alcohol. The solution to this is to make a tea tincture using everclear ( 75+% alc ). This will extract all of the l-theanine from the leaf.

A Genmaicha tincture can be added to a regular cup of tea to boost its phytochemical content. This will add to the energizing, and euphoria effects. Also you'll be sure to get the l-theanine, and other non-polar compounds into the water this way. It's one of the coolest compounds on the planet I think. It's a shame that everyone knows about Caffeine, but not the others. This is where I come in. :)

Organic Genmaicha with Matcha is a form of Japanese green tea. The quality is far superior to that of the typical brand you can find at your local grocery store. The culture of Japan is fully integrated with the use of these various teas. They take quality very seriously, and know how to prepare the ultimate cup.
