Each day, Farid will lead us in the ancient art and practice of the Chinese tea ceremonies, which are also a part of the Taoist tradition for cultivating health, concentration, mental clarity and meditation. He uses a rare organic growing Oolong tea from the high mountains of Taiwan.
Tea is known to be a rich source of flavonoid antioxidants. However tea also contains a unique amino acid, L-theanine that may modulate aspects of brain function in humans. L-theanine in tea significantly increases activity in the alpha frequency band which indicates that it relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness.
Tea has been known more than 5000 years. It was used as a medicine and later as a stimulant. Tea activates the nervous system; coffee just increases the heartbeat rate. Tea affects the dopamine release in the brain, and dopamine affects the Alfa waves.Alpha brain waves have electrical frequencies between 8-13 hertz. They are generated in the Thalamus (the brain within the brain). Alpha brain waves are most present in a wakeful state that is characterized by a relaxed and effortless alertness. Alpha states have been described variously as sublime, flying, floating, lightness, peace, and tranquility. Alpha brain waves are not always present. For example, if someone is in deep sleep or in intense anger there are almost no Alpha brain waves.
The beneficial effect of the tea and the associated ceremony is also a type of meditation.Meditation is effortless alertness. It is the normal state of the brain.Meditation has been largely misunderstood. Usually it is mistaken with concentration. Concentration is an effort (while meditation is effortless), which can bring the mind to one-pointedness, which can preserve energy.
