GABA Purple Grape
GABA is a “new” tea, relative to the thousands of years of tea history; fresh tea leaves go through an oxygen-free (anaerobic) fermentation that increases the gamma-aminobutyric acid (aka GABA) in the tea leaves. This is cool because GABA is a common neurotransmitter inhibitor in your central nervous system. Translation: GABA blocks stimulation of nerve cells so you can actually relax and reduce feelings of overwhelm.
GABA Purple Grape has light sourness, shades of berries, floral and toasted rice notes, and reminders of apple juice, 90s kids childhood vibes. The taste is smooth and gentle, just like its effects, which are mind-calming, anxiety and stress reducing, support sleep, and overall you feel into yourself. Perfect to help you get into a restful state as the sun sets.
