Theanine is a unique non-protein amino acid in tea and contributes to many health benefits. However, the progress towards understanding the synthesis and metabolism of theanine in tea has been slow. The main objective of this work was to identify genes involved in theanine metabolism in tea. A deeper understanding of theanine metabolism in tea should facilitate the natural enhancement of theanine levels in shoots.
