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!

Gaba at its very best

I was really curious. My only "GABA experience" so far was limited to the green teas from Japan, and they taste like broth. I mean it! Interesting but not exactly my kind of tea. This one offers a completely different experience. It has the delicate touch of the oolongs from Taïwan. Now, regarding the "relaxing" part... for some reasons I get rather refreshed and energized by GABA teas, and this one makes no exception :-)

Milk Oolong with Benefits

I have been enjoying the Spring 2019 plucking and find that it is everything a milk oolong Alishan should be, with the added benefit of GABA processing. It is smooth, with a hint of dried fruit, mostly raisins to my palate. Each subsequent infusion differs subtly from the previous one; all supremely enjoyable.

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.
