This Saga Organic GABA Black Tea is the perfect blend of caffeine and relaxation! You may not know this, but most GABA teas are actually made from oolong in Taiwan. So you can only imagine how difficult it was to find an organic black tea made with GABA.
This Saga Organic GABA Black Tea is naturally decaffeinated so it won't keep your head buzzing like your afternoon cup of joe would. Not only that, but according to some early studies it can actually help you relax too! The unique buzz comes from GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid), an amino acid invented in Japan back in 1984. GABA has a variety of benefits, but its main purpose is to relax your body and mind.
To enhance GABA levels in tea leaves, a multi-step process is employed. Firstly, after withering, the tea leaves are placed in an oxygen-deprived setting. This can be achieved through methods like vacuum sealing. By reducing oxygen, the tea leaves undergo a significant conversion – their natural glutamic acid transforms into GABA.
Next, the oxygen-deprived environment promotes anaerobic fermentation, increasing both GABA content and transforming the flavor profile of the tea. This fermentation process is crucial in elevating the desired qualities of the tea.
Finally, once the target GABA levels are attained, the fermentation process is halted by fixing or heating the tea leaves. High-temperature pan-firing is typically employed for this purpose.
Overall, this meticulous process ensures not only the enrichment of GABA in the tea but also a unique and enhanced flavor experience. This tea stands out from most Taiwanese-harvested teas as it originates from a fully organic farm in Saga prefecture.
Cultivated with utmost care, this 100% organic tea offers a distinctive flavor profile that is guaranteed to delight your taste buds without compromising quality. You can savor its exquisite taste whether you prefer to enjoy it hot or cold, making it the perfect addition to your morning or evening ritual.
