A rare cultivar of tea, Gaba was developed in the 1990's by Dr. Tsushima Tojiro of Japan's National Tea Experiment Station. The cultivar was bred specifically for increased levels of gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or more simply put - Gaba. Gaba plays a role in regulating neural excitability and therefore has calming effects that promote low blood pressure, restful sleep and prevents anxiety.
