Gaba Oolong is a high mountain Taiwanese tea harvested at a height of approximately 1600 meters. It has undergone a special oxygen-free fermentation process discovered and perfected in Japan.
Tea leaves are especially high in the amino acid glutamic acid. Japanese tea specialists discovered that partially shading the tea plants two weeks before harvesting creates an increase of the glutamic acid in the leaf. During oxidation, the oxygen is replaced with nitrogen gas, which causes the glutamic acid to be converted to Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), which is known for having a unique calming effect on the nervous system. This unique Japanese technology is what makes Gaba Oolong so special.
Once steeped, the tea releases a rich aromatic ripe fruit fragrance. The liquor is a brilliant light golden-green color, and its flavor is sweet and rich, like roasted sweet potato and stone fruit. Enjoy multiple steeps and welcome a sense of deep calm come over you.
