GABA Oolong is a unique tea that is processed in a low oxygen environment in order to increase concentrations of GABA, or gamma-Aminobutyric acid, a naturally occurring neurotransmitter. Put simply, GABA helps you feel calmer and more relaxed. Because of this, GABA Oolongs are a great choice for drinking later in the day or in the evenings.
This particular GABA Oolong is a unique treat! It was grown without the use of any agrochemicals in the high mountains at 1300 meters in Alishan, Taiwan. Made from a Milk Oolong cultivar, this tea is tasty and has a deeply grounding and relaxing Cha Qi, Tea Energy. This tea was hand picked and then processed in the Spring of 2019.
This tea responds well to all styles of brewing, but we love it most for deep and meditative Bowl Tea sessions!
