About product


Hikari means light and hope.

Japanese green tea with high GABA amino acid content from our own production. The tea leaves are organically grown, have a dark green colour and give off a pleasant fruity-cream aroma, reminiscent of apricots. After steaming, light notes of forest fruits appear with an aroma reminiscent of raspberries. The infusion has a yellowish colour and a pleasant light fruity acidity which gradually sweetens in later infusions. The tea can withstand many hearty infusions !

To be called a GABA tea, it must contain at least 150 mg of GABA amino acid per 100 g of leaf. In Japan, GABA teas have an average of 200 mg/100 g. An analysis of our Japan GABA Hikari this year determined a GABA amino acid content of 240 mg/100 g! We experimented with the production, the GABA content is lower, but the flavor profile is definitely more interesting.

In 1987, Dr. Tsusida, a Japanese invented a way to produce tea with a high GABA amino acid content by processing tea leaves. GABA amino acid is a neurotransmitter and natural growth hormone stimulator that has powerful anti-aging effects.

In particular, it helps:

* lower blood pressure and cholesterol
* headaches from mental overload, depression and anxiety
* treating the effects of strokes, head injuries, tinnitus
* improves blood circulation in the brain, oxygenation of brain cells and their metabolism
* prevents cardiac arrhythmias
* regulates the production of hormones - it is a natural stimulator of growth hormone, which has an anti-aging effect
* increases collagen production, making the skin supple and wrinkle-free.
* increases serotonin levels and thus positively affects a person's mood and sleep.
