Oxygen will be completely removed and replaced with nitrogen gas for 12 hours.This special anaerobic condition of fermentation (without oxygen) will increase the amount of γ-aminobutyric acid (G ABA) accumulated in the leaves, without changing the amount of other components such as catechin and caffeine. The fermented leaves are then removed from the container and processed like normal sencha tea in the factory's aracha production line.
