Our organic GABA Oolong is a developed by Taiwan Tea Master Chen This tea is made at the Chen’s own organic garden in the beautiful Huang Shan area in the province of Anhui, China. Organic GABA tea has a high percentage of Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, known for having a calming effect on the nervous system. Because of its calming and soothing effects, GABA helps to lower blood pressure, helps to control hypoglycemia, prevents anxiety and promotes restful sleep. To an extent, it also regulates appetite, which is helpful in maintaining an optimal body weight. In addition, GABA is also directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone. Many clinical studies have shown that the ingestion of GABA releases human growth hormones with remarkable effectiveness, especially after exercise. The release of growth hormones is known to increase lean body mass. Consequently, GABA tea is an invaluable nutritional supplement for body builders, power lifters, runners, martial artists, and athletes of all types.
All teas have health-promoting compounds, but GABA tea has the highest concentration of anti-oxidants, including catechins, flavanoids, and polyphenols. Anti-oxidants are helpful in fighting many types of disease including: Cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease among others. With all this said, the best thing about GABA tea is that it is wonderfully good in the cup! The special, oxygen-deprived environment that increases the content of GABA while oxidizing the leaves, also smoothes out the tannins leaving a crisp, slightly tart, but never bitter feeling in the mouth. The nose is all fruit and field berries with a wonderfully inviting aroma of strawberry jam and raisins. Generous and refreshing, GABA tea not only makes a beautiful hot beverage, it is fantastic as a refreshing Iced tea!
