2020 Shibi High Elevation GABA
High Elevation Tea
Why is High Elevation tea so prized? Well even though this answer is really multifaceted we can single out one primary factor that makes Gao-Shan Cha so special. It comes down to the rate that the tea metabolizes. In the high mountains the air gets much cooler at night. This condenses the volume of oxygen available, which the tea tree needs in order to metabolize the nutrients it produced during the day while in photosynthesis. Under these conditions the trees are unable metabolize all the phyto-nutrients they produced. The slow metabolism causes an increase available phytonutrients and a much smoother and richer flavor in your cup. Pretty cool hun?!
GABA for your health
This tea is so ridiculously smooooth! For those of you who love our best selling GABA Oolong this tea will be mind blowing. It’s well, elevated. The high elevation bring with it a much brighter sweet note and some soft floral undertones. It has a lighter roast than the classic allowing a softer mouth feel as well.
