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.

This is our special tea for this summer again – another GABA tea with bug bitten character! We are fortunate enough this summer to have our widely popular GABA tea series having some new character added by the great nature! Besides the already sweet and rich flavor, this tea now has the subtle hint of “nectar rhythm” in it, and it is even more obvious on the heavy black tea! We sincerely invite you to enjoy it with us in the upcoming winter weather!

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.
