Alishan GABA Oolong

High Mountain Milk Oolong turned into a GABA oolong anyone? This rare tea from our new partner farm in the Alishan area is a real treat. Creamy, rich fruit leather and sweet black raisins are the dominant flavor for this tea that has quite a high concentration of GABA. If you enjoy the feeling that GABA tea gives you, you will enjoy this one!

Wonderful GABA

Really nice bready aroma. Immediately the milky notes of the Jinxuan cultivar were apparent. The raisin and dried fruit flavors documented on the packaging were there, as was a tart almost sour flavor early on. By the third or fourth infusion I was feeling very relaxed. Later infusions had that bready flavor along with a really nice sweetness. Awesome tea.

GABA

This is an absolutely wonderful tea. I purchased a hefty amount of it, prior to trying it, but it was well worth it. Strong notes of oatmeal cookies and raisins.

Amazingness

I got this as a free sample with an order. I was blown away from the moment I smelled the fruitiness of the warmed dry leaves in my gaiwan. Dont tell Don but I prefer this over the Amber gaba.

Delicious

One of my favorite teas both for the flavor and the GABA content. A soft taste of sweetness with a really pleasant savory/lighly sour flavor from the GABA processing. Really big hit when sharing and the one I almost always find myself reaching for.

Creaminess

This tea is creamy and leaves a feeling and aftertaste in the mouth like a cream-caramel sweet. When describing raisins, I expected a "heavy" sweetness, but it is a pleasantly integrated sweetness.
