This rolled oolong tea provides a warm, soothing, and absolutely delicious way to try GABA supplementation for a calm mind. It starts out as an Anxi, Fujian May-picked organic Tie Guan Yin variety. What makes it special is a processing step that exposes the tea to an oxygen-free, nitrogen-rich environment.
Originally designed as a food preservation method, this process has the happy effect of boosting the naturally occurring Gamma-AminoButyric Acid content to over 350mg per 100g of tea.
Fragrant like a Tie Guan yin with a slight earthy note (not overdone in the least), the tea liquor is smooth and complex with sweet aftertaste. Satisfying and round on the tongue.
GABA is a neurotransmitter responsible for inhibiting overactive firing of neurons in the brain. It is the body's anti-anxiety mechanism supplemented in the natural form through a drink that is healthy for numerous other reasons, as well.
