From Mei Leaf

Fascinating Oolong made from the Fo Shou (Buddha’s Palm) cultivar stored in Nitrogen to increase GABA levels. Deep, dark, smooth and totally unique.

To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Western style, infuse about 3.5g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 95c water for about 2 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 5 times by adding 30 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Gong fu style, infuse about 8g of leaf per 150ml of 95c water for about 20 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 8 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

Dark and mysterious. The infused leaves have a charcoal smell to them, which carries over into the tea soup, which is creamy and thick, with notes of charcoal, burnt toffee, high-octane raw chocolate, coffee beans and raw cocoa. Very much to my liking.

Dark, Robust, and overall a wonderful session from start to finish. This tea lasted me for hours! Don from Mei Leaf really deserves a lot more credit, as he truly hand picks and tastes all the teas he has for sale. Amethyst Gaba is no exception. A wonderful, deep, tightly rolled Oolong. Brewed it at boiling in my Yixing pot starting for about 5 seconds. Increasing by 5-10 seconds each time. I lost count after 10 pots, and started to get a bit tea drunk. I even took my 10g of leaves after I was done and put them in my iced tea container overnight, and when I woke up Strained the leaves and was left with a whole jar of flavorful dark Gaba Iced tea, tasted freshly brewed. A very enjoyable choice for anyone who loves Da hong pao, or other dark oolongs.
