Oolong tea · medium oxidation 

GABA Oolong Tea,or Gabaron, is a tea that has a high content of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It's produced in an anaerobic environment, oxygen-free, with lots of nitrogen which results in an accumulation of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) in the tea leaves. Gaba oolong tea is perfect for meditation enthusiasts.

GABA can be found in the human brain, is what makes it easier for the brain cells to communicate. As humans grow older, the natural GABA levels in the brain decrease.
GABA Tea is the beverage that has the highest content of GABA so it could be seen as a good supply of GABA.

Evidence of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) helping those with high blood pressure, promoting sleep, lowering anxiety, stress levels and reducing hyper brain stimulation has been quite the rage in Japan in the last few years. It is said that GABA Tea intake may help improve mood, promote quality sleep, and relieve anxiety and hyperactivity. 

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