From Drink T

aba tea is a relatively new type of tea with special health benefits. It was first discovered in 1987 by Japanese researchers looking for a way to preserve food. They discovered a process that produced high levels of gamman-amino butyric acid (GABA), an amino acid which occurs naturally in the human body. GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter found in the nervous system and also in the retina, which helps prevent the over-firing of neurons. Meaning, GABA can help reduce stress and anxiety. Today, Gaba tea is very popular in Japan and is prized for it many health benefits as well as providing a calming effect when consumed.

Our Gaba tea is grown and produced in Taiwan according to strict standards set by the Japanese government, and meets or exceeds the Japanese standard of 150 mg of GABA per 100 grams of tea.

Gaba tea brews to a dark brown color with a pleasing, light taste of cinnamon. It can be served either hot or iced. To enhance the subtle flavor, try it hot with a cinnamon stick.

I usually try and break up my teas so I am not drinking teas from all the same company but I have so many new teas from Drink T that I cannot get to the rest of my pile! LOL So…here is another one!

I’m interested in this tea because of it being considered ‘new’ (see product description)…as it has only been an idea or in the mainstream since about 1987-ish.

I’m also interested in this one because of the Anti-Stress/Anti-Anxiety and calming claims. I am going to my very first chiropractor appt today and I am so scared! I figured ongoing severe neck pain for 13 or 14 years – I finally gave up the other day! I think they are just doing scans of neck and spine today but still…scared to death!!!!

So…on with the tea review, eh!?

This has a nutty-sweet type taste and a cinnamony-sweet hint hiding underneath! It’s fairly refreshing which surprises me. This is tasty and I would certainly drink again! YUM!

Don’t be worried about your appt! I used to love going to the chiropractor – very relaxing. You’ll be fine, just relax!

TeaEqualsBliss

thx!!!! Still worried tho!

Oooh I love the chiropractor! You’ll be fine ;-) see if you can have a massage first (many offer them before hand in office) and then after you are relaxed you can go see the chiropractor…muscles and joints all in perfect harmony ;-)

Yeah the chiropractor is great! If you start early enough you only need a few sessions and its very relaxing.

I really like this. It has a toasty, nutty quality to it, but what I like best is that hint of sweet cinnamon flavor. So nice. I can taste notes of fuzzy peach too. It reminds me of a “darker” Oolong that’s been slightly roasted, but at the same time, it is quite different from other Oolongs that I’ve tried.

A very pleasant surprise, this Gaba tea!

I purchased this as a sample because I was interested in it as it was described as new and it is very popular in Japan. I think it tastes great. It smells sweet and nutty. It has a wonderful light taste with notes of fruit, cashews, and honey. I really like this tea and will be buying more.
As far as the claims that it has a high GABA content which has a calming effect. I am not sure yet if I feel calmer after drinking it. I’ll have to drink more before making a determination.
