L-Theanine is an amino acid that is primarily found in tea leaves but is also present in some types of mushrooms. It is particularly known for its ability to bring on relaxation without causing drowsiness. As a dietary supplement, L-Theanine is often used for its potential stress-relieving and mood-enhancing effects.
