It is said that Sujata was the wife of a farmer who offered milk-rice pudding to the Buddha, ending his six years of asceticism.  The milk-rice pudding provided enough sustenance for him to ultimately attain Bodhi, or enlightenment.  

Sujata's Milk GABA Oolong is a rare, high mountain milk oolong grown agrochemical free.  It's taste is creamy with sweet black raisins, just like milk-rice pudding.  Much like the sustenance this milk-rice pudding provided to the Buddha, GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) provides sustenance to those of us who suffer from anxiety, stress, fear, high blood pressure, heart issues, dementia, memory and concentration problems, fatigue and insomnia.  

GABA is a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) in our brains that blocks specific signals that cause anxiety, stress and fear.  Drinking GABA oolong is thought to produce a calming effect and is the go-to tea on days when you need an emotional lift.

Brewing Recommendations

Serving Size: 3-5g per 100ml of purified water.

Ideal Brewing Vessel: Porcelain tea pot or gaiwan; or high-fired, high profile thin clay teapot.

Steeping: Boil water to 212F/100C and then wait for the water to stop bubbling before pouring the water down the inside of the brewing vessel, not directly on the leaves. Brew for 30 seconds, then replace the lid and pour the liquor into a gong dao bei (fairness pitcher) before apportioning into tea cups.  Add 15 seconds for each subsequent brew. Remove the lid of the brewing vessel to allow the leaves to cool between steepings. Flash brewing in this manner ensures this tea can be brewed up to 5+ times and brewed again the following morning if left overnight.
