The special processing of this oolong tea raises the levels of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid up to 40 times that found in other high-quality teas. This is achieved by using nitrogen in the usual oxidation phase and is a lengthy and complicated process that takes over 24 hours. GABA is a very important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. GABA is believed to have many health benefits, among which are:
LOWERING OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE: GABA is known for its role in regulating blood pressure. It is important not to drink it if you suffer from clinically diagnosed low blood pressure known as hypotension.
ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES: Helps in the prevention of cell mutation.
BOOSTING PRODUCTION OF HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE: Helps burn fat, enhance muscle mass, eliminate cellulite, improve energy levels, cardiac output, skin elasticity, memory, endurance, liver function and bone mass.
BOOSTS DEEP SLEEP: Taken one hour before bedtime it will help maintain sleep in the second cycle.
DE-STRESS: GABA is produced by the body to aid relaxation by blocking excessive nerve signals related to anxiety. Lack of GABA is linked to epilepsy, seizures and some diseases of the brain like Huntington's and Parkinson's.
BALANCES BLOOD SUGAR: GABA lowers blood sugar by supporting and balancing the production of insulin, therefore, lowering the risk of diabetes.
BOOSTS IMMUNITY: Improves plasma concentration linked to resisting infection.
MENTAL ALERTNESS: In Japan, it is taken as part of the diet and is also given to children to stimulate mental alertness, improve memory and concentration. It is a very good cure for a hangover!

As low as £16.00Our Gabalong is made with high-quality green tea to guarantee maximum GABA content, twice the requirement to be classified as such a tea. This batch has a mild, almost creamy character with a distinctive, natural mango fragrance. Made from tea leaves picked and processed into green tea on Ali Shan, or 'Ancestor Mountain' as it is known. Proven to lower blood pressure it should not be drunk by those with a clinical diagnosis of low blood pressure.
As low as £29.00This high grown, hand picked tea is grown on the Ali Mountain in central Taiwan. The special processing that increases the health giving Gamma Amino Butyric Acid content also changes the flavour of this tea too. It is very soft and mellow with a honey like quality that, health benefits aside, make it worthwhile drinking. To qualify as being a 'gabaron' tea and to give the required recommended dosage it must have 150mg per 100g of GABA, this contains over twice that amount.
As low as £15.00In addition to Fog Island Japanese Sencha and Chinese Pu Erh teas, which are currently being exposed to much ado in the press regarding their alleged benefits to weight loss, I have added my favourite, and I believe healthiest of teas, Gabalong 'Blue' Oolong. With the final addition of our Tea of Life White Tea for good measure, if there is anything in the health aspect of tea, we should have it covered here! The tea flavour is a mellow mix, with the distinctive note of caramel and vanilla of the Gabalong tea in the foreground. The delicate notes of the Sencha, whilst somewhat subdued by the other teas, adds a fresh edge to the cup, with the more earthy tones of the Pu Erh adding weight and body.
As low as £18.00This Gabalong oolong tea has almost twice as much GABA content than is required to be classified as Gaba tea. It has an incredibly rich flavour in the cup. Notes of caramel toffee are complemented by the ripe fruit flavours like cooked apples. There are also hints of chocolate and mountain flower notes that flicker in the cup as it cools. A healthy and delicious tea!
