Tea with GABA
The Gaba Oolong (GABA stands for gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a product of natural farming. It is grown in harmony with the local ecosystem, in the most natural conditions possible without chemistry that would support or protect the growth of the tea shrubs. The tea leaves of the Jin Xuan cultivar are naturally rich in the glutamic acid, which is a GABA precursor. They meet or exceed the Japanese standard of 150 mg of GABA per 100 grams of tea. The production of Gaba tea differs from the production of other teas: it is processed in nitric atmosphere without the access of air. The Gaba Oolong has a very positive effect on the nervous system and brain receptors.
Many clinical studies have shown that the ingestion of GABA releases growth hormone, especially after exercise, with remarkable effectiveness. The release of growth hormone is known to increase lean body mass. Consequently, Gaba tea is a valuable nutritional supplement for body builders, power lifters, runners, martial artists, and athletes of all types. In addition, because of its calming and soothing effects, GABA also lowers blood pressure, helps control hypoglycemia, prevents anxiety and promotes restful sleep. To an extent, it also regulates appetite, which is helpful in maintaining optimal weight. All tea has 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 disease, senility, drug-induced deafness, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's disease.
GABA Tea Production
Fresh tea leaf is put into a high pressure barrel and vacuumed until the barrel is free of oxygen. In order to make sure and prevent oxygen from entering, nitrogen is flushed into the barrel and left for more than 6 hours (depending on the weather, tea leaf and other factors sometimes more than 10 hours are needed). When it is done, the leaf is taken out of the barrel, then fried to halt fermentation, rolled, dried, compressed, rolled, compressed and finally redried.
This GABA tea is made of hand picked leaves.
