From Teamania

This Oolong originates from Doi Mae Salong and is also known as GABA Tea. This because of its high GABA. Oolong Black Pearls is a hand-picked and rolled Oolong # 12 which was nearly complete oxidized. Therefore, it’s a black tea too. But, the flavor isn’t bitter like some black tea. It’s more floral and honey-like. Quite comparable with a Darjeeling. The preparation is classic Oolong style: Rinse, first a short infusion, second infusion a bit longer, third infusion even longer, etc. Can also be infused cold as ice tea.

Harvest: 2012
Taste: Floral and honey-like.
Oxidation: 80 – 100%
Origin: Family bussines in Doi Mae Salong, Provinz Chiang Rai, Nordthailand.
Preparation: One Teelamass per tea pot (appx. 3g), temperatur 95°C, time 1-2 minutes for the first infusion and additional 10s for each further infusion. Rinse the leaves gentle with hot water befor use.
Tip: Use a small tea pot and make several infusions with the same leaves.

A really delightful Oolong. The leaves look like a tightly wound green Oolong, except that the leaves are much darker, like a chocolate brown color. A lovely fragrance to the dry leaf: floral and sweet.

A very flavorful Oolong. Honey-esque. fruity with juicy qualities. Earthy and woodsy. A really nice, complex Oolong.
