Description

Gaba Oolong #5 is a high mountain Taiwanese tea that has undergone a special oxygen-free fermentation process created and perfected in Japan to increase the Gaba.

Tea leaves are naturally high in glutamic amino acids. Japanese tea specialists discovered that partially shading the tea plants two weeks before harvesting creates an increase in the glutamic acid in the leaf. During oxidation, the oxygen is replaced with nitrogen gas, which causes the glutamic acid to be converted to Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), which is known for having a unique calming effect on the nervous system. This specialty Japanese technology is what makes our Taiwanese Gaba Oolong #5 so special.

Once steeped, the tea releases a rich aromatic ripe fruit fragrance. The liquor is a brilliant amber golden color, and its flavor is deep and sweet like fresh roasted sweet potato, it finishes with florals and stone fruit. Try this relaxing oolong for many steepings and enjoy the sense of calm it brings.

Best GABA oolong I've tried. I appreciate the darker roast that brings out the roasted root vegetable (sweet potato) flavors under a nice dark amber brew. The GABA has a slight sour flavor that the darker roast helps to hide. I really start enjoying this on the second through fourth infusions. I prefer to brew GongFu style, with more leaf, quick steeps, and water around 180F/82C to savor the extra infusions. The tea never got bitter but did lose most flavor after the sixth infusion.
