This is my second experience with a GABA Oolong tea, and finally I changed my opinion positively.
With the first GABA oolong tried, purchased from, I thought that it wasn’t a tea for me; then when I got a free sample from Grand Tea I believed that it would remain for eternity in my cupboard, but when I tried it…. well, it finished in a short time.

It comes from Huangshan, in Anhui Province, China, harvest of 2015.

Damn, I really enjoyed the liveliness of this tea, with a round and creamy body, floral and tomato aromas, vegetable tip.
The liquor color is orange, tending to brown tones, clear.

Even in the mouth there is, initially, a mainly floral notes, and secondly tomato; subsequent infusions begins to predominate tomato notes and floral notes fade into the background.

It is balanced, relaxing, I liked even infusions of 20, 30 minutes by which time they felt only vague aroma of tomato.

The dried leaves are rolled, brown, with a light floral aroma, but its aromas must be awakened.

I have performed a wash of 20 seconds and the leaves are open completely in the second infusion of 1’.
Successive infusions: 1’15 ‘’, 1’30 ‘’, 2 ’, 3’, 5 ‘, 8’ …

Flavors: Creamy, Flowers, Round , Vegetal

Hi everyone!
I’m a begginer, I’m still exploring this vast world of tea by reading books, tea blogs, reviews and discussions on Steepster, and of course by drinking as much new types of tea as possible.

I love green teas from China (except teas like Gunpowder, Chun Mee..), and Japan.
In my cupboard there must be always present some Sencha and any chinese green tea which has apricot or vegetable notes.
I’m very curious to try teas from South Korea, but for now I had the pleasure to try only Woojeon green tea.

I also like roasted oolong, red tea, yellow tea, white tea which only recently I restarted to drink it (I had a bad experience in the past with a very bad quality of Pai Mu Tan).
But, ehi, also some light oxidaized oolong are not bad, I’m starting to like them too! XD

I’m new on Pu-erh and Hei-cha teas from april 2016 and I already love them; surely I need more experience and more tastings but it’s sure that I’ll never leave them anymore.

What about (white, green, black…) teas from India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, etc? For now I’m not focusing my personal growth on teas with them. I’m not a big lover of indian black teas, but I’m slowly starting to appreciate them too.

I hardly drink flavored teas, herbal/tisanes, while I completely dislike Jasmine Green Tea and Earl Grey.

Sorry for any grammar or lexical mistakes.. """"( ._.)

The most WOW teas in 2016 which made me thrilled:
- “White Down Silver Needle – Zheng He” from Grand Tea
- “Liu Bao” from Grand Tea
- “Fou Shou Shan AAAA Spring 2016” from Teaway
- “Raw Pu-erh Simao 1999” from Grand Tea
- “2016 Spring Mengsong Raw Puer” from White2Tea
