About Green Sanctuary: GABA Tea

Produced in an anaerobic environment with lots of nitrogen, this Taiwanese oolong tea is great for meditation enthusiasts.

Evidence of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) helping those with high blood pressure and reducing hyper brain stimulation has been quite the rage in Japan in the last few years.

This Taiwanese tea is somewhat polarizing in the tearoom: those who like it love it, and those who don’t really don’t. GABA Tea is medium-bodied and tastes like an umami-packed mushroom broth and smells of mushroom and seaweed.
