GABA Sencha Green
Oxidised in a nitrogen rich environment, this Organic Sencha from Shizuoka is high in GABA, a chemical messenger that lowers stress, improves sleep and reduces anxiety which seems pretty needed at the moment! GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is naturally occurring in tea, but usually in concentrations of around 6mg per 100g of tea, however in the 1980s Dr. Tsushida discovered that by processing the leaves in a nitrogen-rich environment the concentration of GABA increases. Today GABA teas must have at least 150mg per 100g of tea, that’s at least 25 times more than in traditional teas! Picked from the Yabukita cultivar, expect the unmistakable notes of spinach, seaweed, and umami, but more buttery than a regular Sencha. Good for 3 infusions.
* This tea has recently been certified Organic, and we will update are labels soon.
