From Taiwan Sourcing

Thanks to the plantation that’s located in the deep mountain environment with opulent sunshine exposure, our GABA tea material comes the 100% Jin Xuan varietal from Alishan area with a incomparable quality.

The material is the same as our Jade Oolong GABA from Alishan, but this one was wilted and processed into Black tea. The result creates a thick, sweet and rich body with a orange-red tea soup. It’s the perfect tea for those who enjoy black tea but are seeking a soothing effect to counter the strong black tea caffeine kick.

GABA stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, and the content of this tea is aournd 400 mg per 100 grams which is higher than most of the GABA tea in the market. The GABA content adds a thick layer of baked sweet potato taste to the tea and is proven to offer the drinker a soothing or relaxing feeling. GABA processing, which involves shade growing 10 to 15 days before harvesting and then nitrogen sparging was developed by the Japanese and later perfected by the Taiwanese. The result is a tea that tastes great, at once stimulating and soothing to the nervous system.
