Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia. The word "tea" generally implies the use of tea leaves (Camellia sinensis), but tea can be made out of many plants.

Chemistry

Tea contains both theanine and caffeine as well as many other compounds known. [citation needed] The younger the leaf, the more caffeine it tends to have.[1]

Subjective effects

Disclaimer: The effects listed below are taken from the subjective effect index, which is based on anecdotal reports and the personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. As a result, they should be treated with a healthy degree of skepticism. It is worth noting that these effects will rarely (if ever) occur all at once, although higher doses will increase the chances of inducing a full range of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely on higher doses and may include serious injury or death.
