Batch 901 // 2018

Tasting notes: Full bodied with fruity flavor.

Mood/benefits: Anytime when you need to relax & wind down, before bed to promote good sleep. GABA oolong promotes relaxation and helps with anxiety, stress, and insomnia.

Unique functional Oolong tea with high levels of Gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA with proven health benefits

Our farmers have devoted years into researching different techniques to create the fine flavor. They’ve altered the processing method to roasting and baking, which creates the excellent fruity taste now unique to this particular GABA oolong tea

I’ve been almost exclusively drinking cold brews right now, as our weather here turned from rainy/mildly pleasant to Satan’s butt-crack hot overnight. But I woke up this morning with that froggy throat from breathing with your mouth open all night, and wanted something warm to moisten it back up.

Still have this single sachet teabag from the goodie bag at the San Francisco International Tea Fest 2018! I steeped my teabag for 3 minutes in 350ml of 205F water. Tea is a pretty goldenrod color and has the aroma I associate with “Chinese restaurant oolong”. Sort of a floral-forward wildflower honey aroma, orange blossom, and roasted nuts. Those flavors carry over very well to the sip. Sweet and smooth honey-roasted nuts and a floral/fruity orange blossom. A slight minerality in the aftertaste.

Really enjoyable!

My friend got this at the SF Tea Festival. It said something about walnuts, but I am unclear whether that’s an ingredient or one of the flavor notes. She’s allergic and wasn’t going to take any chances.

Oh wow, I taste a honey note and something nutty. There’s a slight vegetal note too. I find it a little odd that this says it’s an oolong tea on a cache of their website (site is down; I used Google cache), but the note with the bag says caffeine free. I wonder if the gaba in this will calm me down. I’m usually calm anyway. Anyway, it’s very tasty.

I honestly don’t notice the calming effect. Perhaps if I were actually nervous or drank some before bed I could tell.
