Meishan Natural Farming Jin Xuan Bug Bitten GABA Oolong Tea


Brand: Taiwan Sourcing

This product is unavailable

It has been a long while since our collaboration with this family at Meishan area for their preciously grown Jin Xuan material that could be turned into great quality GABA tea no matter it is green, oolong, or black. 


Sometimes, this material could be bug bitten as well. And when that happens, the regular GABA oolong will turn into a next level potion. This bug bitten GABA tea is the wonder from nature and man's effort.


GABA stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, and the content of this tea is aournd 400 mg per 100 grams which is higher than most of the GABA tea in the market.  Through a series of research, Japanese scholar Omori Masashi ( 大森 正司 ) confirmed it has a very powerful antihypertensive effect thanks to its extremely high content of γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) compared to other teas. GABA processing, which involves shade growing and then nitrogen sparging was developed by the Japanese and later perfected by the Taiwanese.  The result is a tea that tastes great, at once stimulating and soothing to the nervous system.

 Cinnamon aroma is really strong to me and I love it. It brews strong sweet rich nectar. The fragrance is strong and fills the space well. I found it very satisfying to drink and share with friends as well becuase it lasted many steeps


 We don't have this type of tea very often.
