Theanine, or more specifically L-theanine
, is an amino acid analog that provides matcha and gyokuro with its savory (umami) flavor. In the US, the FDA considers it a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) dietary supplement.
Combined with actual matcha in an instant packet form, Dobashien's version is perfect for those who want to supplement their intake of theanine from ordinary green tea.
