    Spring 2019

    Shan Ling Xi wu long tea (oolong tea) is from a mountain area in Nantou county of central Taiwan and is located at about 1,900 meters above sea level. This high elevation provides ideal growing conditions for oolong tea as the air remains cool year round. Tea plantations have been established in Shan Ling Xi since the 1970's. It has since become known as one of the premier tea producing regions of Taiwan and Shan Ling Xi oolong tea is prized by Taiwanese tea connoisseurs.

    Shan Ling Xi wu long tea can be brewed slightly longer than the Wu Ling oolong tea. Fifty seconds is recommended for the first pot when brewing this tea gong fu style. When brewing Shan Ling Xi oolong tea you will notice the sweet aroma which gives just a hint of the wonderful flavors to come.

    Spring 2019. GABA tea has special health benefits.

    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.
