GABA teas: specially made teas to contain higher amounts of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which according to research is very beneficial to health. The tea leaves are exposed to nitrogen during processing, which increases the GABA content. The production process was discovered about twenty years ago by Japanese scientists who were then experimenting with food preservation. Each tea usually contains this substance in an amount of 20-30 mg / 100 g. However, for the possibility of mentioning GABA in the name, the tea must contain at least 150 mg / 100 g of tea.
