Tea compounds may boost attention span

Tea compounds may boost attention span

According to a study released by Unilever and published in the journal Appetite, researchers found that tea compounds L-theanine and caffeine (at levels obtained in a single cup of tea) may improve one’s attention span.

Buddhist monks have known this for thousands of years. As Buddhist missionaries fanned out all over Asia, they didn’t just bring the knowledge of Buddha’s wisdom with them. They also carried their tea seeds and planted tea wherever their message found a home.

The Buddhist missionaries brought their tea with them on their journeys because they knew over 2000 years ago that drinking tea was a powerful tool to aid their long sessions of meditation.
