Imagine drinking tea to relieve anxiety and stress!

GABA is the nickname for gamma-amino butyric acid — an amino acid that regulates muscle tone and nervous excitability. GABA acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, it blocks nerve impulses.

While small amounts of naturally-occurring GABA are present in most tea, its concentration can be increased by a nitrogen-rich steaming process first developed in Japan in 1984.

This rare Taiwanese GABA Black (Mi Xian Black) is a hand-plucked tea from the famous Alishan mountainous region in Taiwan. The tightly rolled balls yield a liquor somewhat similar to an aged, well-oxidised oolong with more subtle floral notes. It's perfect for those who enjoy black tea but are seeking a soothing effect to counter the caffeine…or a state of blissful calm.
