Red Jade, Hong Yu 红玉 cultivar is very fragrant and complex, usually used for black teas. Processed as a GABA it became an elevated spicy and rich tea, which warms you up and relaxes you deeply.

Gaba is an oxygen-free fermentation technique, developed in the early ’80s in Japan. During this process of anaerobe oxidation, a large amount of natural GABA, that is γ-aminobutyric-acid accumulates in the leaves. This compound is noted for its great muscle relaxant and stress-relieving effect.
Picked early spring 2022, 60-70% oxidized, fresh red fruits and flower bouquet.
