Monk's Organic GABA Oolong

** The fresh 2021 spring pick of this fan favorite of a GABA oolong is available and ready to ship! **

This is a tea that we have had our eye on for a long time, but it was only recently that we were able to get a price low enough to put on the site. It is a great tea. A fully agrochemical free grown milk oolong(Jinxuan) cultivar GABA,  this oolong is as thick and sweet as candy. Light, sweet fruit notes in the upfront give way to a full milky mid mouth and finish with a lasting sweetness. The only extra thing we wish that it would give us is a few more steeps, but the loose rolling style of oolong used for this tea puts out its flavors strongly in the first couple steeps. And those steeps are wonderful! If you brew it grandpa style though, you can drink it all day.

The GABA content in this one is about 225mg per 100g which we find to be a nice amount. If you are sensitive to the GABA effects, it is calming but not overwhelming. Overall a sweet and smooth 'treat' of a tea!

Best of both (less and heavy oxidized)

Wonderful tea. Many GABA teas are heavy oxidized and malty. This one has fresh notes from less oxidized tea but at the same time sweet and “red“ notes like all the other GABA Oolongs.
Best of both

Comforting

Very good, classic GABA taste that is familiar and comforting. Served this to some friends and family last week and they all were in love with it! A sweet and unique treat to introduce to teabag drinkers!
