GABA tea has special health benefits

GABA tea is a relatively new type of tea with special health benefits. It was first produced in 1987 in Japan where it remains a very popular type of tea. The main compound is gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) - an amino acid that occurs naturally in the human body. GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter found in the nervous system and also in the retina.

Taiwanese GABA tea is an all natural product. It is made from high-grade whole-leaf that is naturally rich in glutamic acid - the precursor to GABA. The processing involves exposing the fresh tea leaves to nitrogen gas under controlled conditions. GABA tea is produced according to 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 and can be served either hot or iced.

Sample Available: Chong Pei Sample Pack

The last shipment I received of this tea was mediocre. I have been ordering this tea for years and it has been my favorite but this time I was very disappointed. Looks like they are still shipping out the 2015 harvest which means it might have been old or not stored properly.

Outstanding! I just wish it was organically grown as we drink a lot of it.

AMAZING GABA Oolong tea! Highly recommend!! Tastes amazing.....I am sensitive to caffeine and this tea is relaxing yet still gives you the mental alertness without any jitters associated with caffeine sensitivity. Will definitely order again!

This was my first try of a Gaba tea and I must say that I like it. Especially the aftertaste, it lasts for a long time... Although I'm a fresh tea consumer, I must say, this is one of my favorite darker teas.

This particular Oolong is dark and medium brown with a green tinge. It has a dark, slight smoky and floral scent. Using my Gongfu for 1 minute – first steep this tea is yellow/brown in colour and has a light wood and floral scent. Very woodsy really…like being in a carpenters shop. Flavour is sweet and wooden, medium strength with a green, floral after taste. The sweetness is honey like but is made darker by the dominant wooden taste. It’s starting to remind me of pencil shavings.. that dark, dusky, wooden scent that they have…very similar to this Oolong. Steep 2 – 2 minutes – Remaining amber in colour with the same wooden scent. It’s perhaps a little thicker now with more sweetness than previously.
