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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
