GABA TEA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) made from Taiwanese high-grade Chin Shin (Gentle Heart) varietal bushes that are naturally rich in glutamic acid - the precursor to GABA, and meets or exceeds the Japanese standard of 150 mg of GABA per 100 grams of tea. GABA tea production difers in that it is made in a nitrogen rich anaerobic atmosphere without any exposure to oxygen.
This delicious GABA tea was made from the Ying Zi Hong Xin varietal, "Tough Stem Red Heart", famous for being the original varietal used for the famous Tie Guan Yin oolong.
The Shimen area near Taipei is one of the oldest growing regions in Taiwan and is famous for its traditionally processed and roasted Tie Guan Yin.
This tea comes from natural cultivated gardens that don’t use any agricultural chemicals. GABA tea is famous for its extensive health properties including its calming properties which have a positive effect on mood and helping regenerate the nervous system.
