Description from site:
Most GABA teas are a little sour and ripe tasting after going through the unique oxygen free fermentation process. We have found one that isn't. Tasting of sweet, large black raisins this full bodied tea blew us away! Grow in the same wild garden as our Aged Heart White Tea, the sweetness of this tea is amazing. While the health effects of GABA tea are being studied we are happy to be in the early adopter group with this wonderfully tasting tea!
