New research found that drinking tea improved attention and allowed individuals to be more focused on the task at hand. In this placebo-controlled study, subjects who drank tea produced more accurate results during an attention task and also felt more alert than subjects drinking a placebo. These effects were found for two to three cups of tea consumed within a time period of up to 90 minutes. It is thought that the amino acid theanine and caffeine, both present in tea, contribute to many of tea’s psychological benefits.
