GABA Tea is one of a rare bread of teas that was initially developed, not only for its resulting drinking enjoyment, but rather for its purported health benefits. If you are not familiar with this aspect, check out the info tab below. Now that this is said, we need to admit that the best thing about GABA tea is that it is wonderfully good in the cup! This tea is one of the most accessible, easy drinking teas we propose. The special, oxygen-deprived environment that increases the content of GABA while oxidising the leaves, also smoothes out the tannins leaving a crisp, slightly tart, but never bitter feeling in the mouth. The nose is all fruit, field berries to be more precise. As soon as hot water is poured on the leaves, a wonderfully inviting aroma of strawberry jam and sultana raisins invites us to taste the cup. Generous and refreshing, GABA tea not only makes a beautiful hot beverage, it is fantastic as a refreshing iced tea!
