Description

Gaba Oolong is a high mountain Taiwanese tea harvested at a height of approximately 1600 meters. It has undergone a special oxygen-free fermentation process discovered and perfected in Japan.

Tea leaves are especially high in the amino acid glutamic acid. Japanese tea specialists discovered that partially shading the tea plants two weeks before harvesting creates an increase of the glutamic acid in the leaf. During oxidation, the oxygen is replaced with nitrogen gas, which causes the glutamic acid to be converted to Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), which is known for having a unique calming effect on the nervous system. This unique Japanese technology is what makes Gaba Oolong so special.

Once steeped, the tea releases a rich aromatic ripe fruit fragrance. The liquor is a brilliant light golden-green color, and its flavor is sweet and rich, like roasted sweet potato and stone fruit. Enjoy multiple steeps and welcome a sense of deep calm come over you.

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
195F / 90°C
2 - 3 min

Absolutely exquisite! Great GABA, a bit pricey but worth ever penny and then some. Juts like the description, but I’d even say even more complex and delicious. Ripe fruits, chestnut honey sweetness, roasted sweet potato, cinammon, white pepper, mountain top after rain. Medium texture, super refreshing, quenching and salivating. Holds up for at least 9 steeps when brewed gongfu(6g per 100ml at 195F). Sublime, relaxing and creative Cha Qi. Literally EVERYTHING you want out a tea. A must try. A great tea to set the bar for what a tea session should be like. Thank you, Tealyra! ????

GREAT oolong that was I able to resteep again and again - I think I stepped my leaves 4 times and got great flavors each time!

Probably the notable thing with this tea, flavor-wise is a very strong ripe banana note. This is also what I've experienced with other gaba teas. Some people will love this, but others (like myself) might now.
