GABA stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid. 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. The GABA content adds a thick layer of baked sweet potato taste to the tea and is proven to offer the drinker a soothing or relaxing feeling.  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. 


We are proud to offer this extremely affordable GABA tea to you, and now with osmanthus flower! This tea not only has the classical taste and health benefits of GABA tea, but also has the floral aroma and sweetness of osmanthus as well!

 Wow!  Incredible osmanthus sweetness that intermingles with sweet potato caramel taste all in one.  The GABA is there and it literally makes me sag in my chair after drinking it.  This is one of those teas that's more a way of life to drink than anything else.  It's got three gifts in it; the GABA, the osmanthus and the organically grown tea!


 Still enjoying......


 An old dog was very happy to encounter this tea on his tea table. This tea is very easy to understand even as a dog! A GABA tea with the joyful aroma of osmanthus flower! This is one of old dog's frequently drinking tea on its tea table, or even dining table!
