Snow Mist Organic Tea Estate

**This GABA is gorgeous, and we have been saving it until it has aged a touch and fully come into its own. It is ready now!**

A tea garden like no other, Snow Mist Organic Tea Estate has consistently produced some of the best Taiwanese tea we have ever tasted. We are always excited when our small yearly allotment of tea is ready. 

Snow Mist has all the characteristics that we long for in tea production. Low impact agrochemical free agriculture, high quality care of the plants following permaculture principles, pristine environment, mentoring programs for other younger tea makers, pride in their work and tea, happy prosperous workers and on and on. The videos and pictures that are available on our Instagram feed of this area speak for themselves.

The 2023 production season was a great one weather wise and Matt was honored to spend three days helping with the tea making process on the mountain. This year's teas are better than average, and we are proud to be sharing them with you.

In partnership with this farm we receive a small allotment of tea each year. With full transparency we sell these rare teas into the western market at a cost lower than the domestic market prices. In supporting this garden and giving western tea lovers access to these teas we hope that we can lift the general expectations and understanding of high quality, organic tea outside of Asia. This tea is expensive, but we believe it is worth every penny.

This GABA is rich, sweet, fruity and has a nice dose of that wonderful GABA calming effect, if you are one of the lucky ones that feel it of course! If you are a fan of this garden or of GABA teas in general this one might become a new favorite...

Sublime GABA

Super Long lasting floral nectar, creamed spinach, salted pistachio, raisin. aftertaste is long lasting sweet. Mouth feel is slick and vibrant. GABA flavor is smooth & blooms in the middle of the sip . The ChaQi relaxes but does not make me sleepy.
A unique taste profile that made me stop and pay attention. Very sublime tasting profile.

Blew My Mind

Checked all of my favorite tasting note boxes. 5 Stars, 2 Thumbs Up, all the things…INCREDIBLE GABA!!!

The best of GABA

This is the best GABA tea on the site. Lots of dry fruit like raisin, hint of floral, hint of cinnamon, and very smooth in the mouth. How can it feel smoother than water? Yet it does.

Easy Breezy GABA

A smooth complexion with deep fruit undertones, good no matter how you brew it. I’ve found myself relishing this grandpa style on lazier days, the large leaves sink perfectly with no fuss and the GABA shines through in an uplifting way.

Impressive Gaba

Wow! This is an excellent tea. Very nice fruity flavor with slight overtones of the sourness produced by the GABA processing.
Every Snow Mist tea I have tried has been exceptional in its own way.
One does have to be careful with the brewing or its easy to introduce some bitterness.
