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 Teaway.it, 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
