Description

Gaba Oolong is a high mountain Oolong tea. Harvested at a height of approximately 1600 meters. Once heated the leaf aroma includes very fragrant green apple and ripe fruit notes. The liquor is a light green, almost golden colour. Tea plants are known to produce leaves especially high in glutamic acid. About two weeks prior to plucking, GABA oolong leaves are partially shaded, which causes increased production of this substance. During the oxidation-phase of production, all oxygen is replaced with nitrogen gas, whose presence causes the glutamic acid to be converted to Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), known for having a calming effect on the nervous system.

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
195F / 90°C
2 - 3 min

10/10 would recommend. The oxidation process and terroir of this tea give it a rich, complex and unique flavor that is highly appealing.

I first rinsed my tea (about 1 tsp) with hot water (about 8 oz.) for about 30 sec. and threw the water, then steeped it about 3 minutes in a mug w/strainer. I found the taste to be rich, deep, earthy and slightly salty, and I was amazed at how smooth it was. A few hours later, I made my 2nd infusion, and steeped it a bit longer, maybe 4-5 minutes. It was richer, smoother and I got the roasted flavor more intensely, almost smoky. My 3rd infusion, steeped about 8 minutes, was still very good, so I went for a 4th one!
