A cup of Tea can boost your memory: Study

According to research carried out by Dutch scientists, tea has the power to zap brain power, keeps fatigue away and helps thinking capability.

Researchers looked at the effect of key chemicals found in tea on the mental performance of 44 young volunteers.

The effects of these ingredients, an amino acid called L-theanine -- also found in green tea -- and caffeine at levels typically found in a cup of tea, were compared with a dummy treatment, the journal Nutritional Neuroscience reports.

The active ingredients significantly improved accuracy across a number of switching tasks for those who drank the tea after 20 and 70 minutes compared with the placebo.

The tea drinkers' alertness was also heightened, the study found, according to the Daily Mail.

Tea was also found to have reduced tiredness among the volunteers, who were aged under 40, according to the Dutch researchers.
