Visualize the cloud saturated Alishan Mountain in Taiwan, the air heavily misted and limited rays of sunshine and you have conjured perfect conditions for producing high mountain grown oolong. The high elevation, moist, cool temperatures retard the growth of the tea bush allowing for a delayed development in the leaf to produce the sweet, aromatic deliciousness that presents the unique profile that is characteristic to most high mountain grown oolongs.
Far from the mountain top and across the ocean to Enchanted Creations Tea I bring you a limited supply of this exotic tea. This precious GABA oolong is even more unique to other oolong tea due to the processing technique developed in Japan in the late 1980s. This manufacturing style increases the Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), an important amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter that calms the central nervous system.
GABA is produced naturally in the brain and facilitates communication amongst brain cells. GABA’s big role in the body is to reduce the activity of neurons in the brain and central nervous system which positively effects the body and mind bringing forth increased relaxation, reduces mental and physical stress, lowers anxiety levels for a peaceful and balanced mood and helps alleviate pain and a promotes a more restful sleep. Simply put, GABA is an important contributor to the body’s overall mental and physical homeostasis, or balance.
This GABA oolong is a must have addition to your tea cupboard and will be your new favourite “go-to tea”. Let this beautiful oolong nurture your mind and body as we all navigate our way through these uncertain and stressful times . I have sourced this incredible tea for its beautiful fragrant cup and the incredible benefits to assist us through the pandemic.
