I’ve never had GABA before! I haven’t tried it long enough to say if it’s a more relaxing tea than others, but I do find this particular variety delicious. It tastes like a white tea to me, with sweet notes of melon and hay, but with more body and resteeping power. The leaves are nice and huge, so allow lots of room for them to open in your steeper. I’m very pleased by how well this resteeps. Tastes the best when it’s cooled a little. Great tea sent to me by Sips by.
