Gaba Oolong tea has been naturally enriched with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and is known to have a calming effect on the body.
The tea leaves used to make Gaba Oolong are harvested in the morning and then exposed to nitrogen gas, which stimulates the production of GABA. This process is known as anaerobic fermentation and it can increase the GABA content in the tea leaves by up to 10 times.
The resulting tea has a unique flavor profile that is both sweet and savory, with notes of honey, cinnamon, and a hint of sourness. It also has a smooth and mellow mouthfeel, with a slightly creamy texture.
Gaba Oolong tea is often praised for its potential health benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, promoting better sleep, and improving cognitive function.
