Produced in an anaerobic environment with lots of nitrogen, this 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. Its high content of umami makes it taste almost like soup and smell of mushroom and seaweed. If hipsters are our century’s hippies, then this is the hipster rebel of our teas.
