I love this tea. I’m not sure I receive any of the GABA effects created by the nitrogen-rich processing, but it certainly creates a distinctive tasting tea. Warm as flavours get, there’s a liquoriceness to the nose – sweeter than fennel / aniseed, it’s a very sweet tea. I bought a big bag for fear of it running out in the shop one day. I also tried the Ruby GABA – interesting, but this is the sweet spot.

Flavors: Licorice, Marshmallow, Sweet, Toasty, Tropical

London was the final stop on my Eurotrip during which I dropped by Mei Leaf in Camden. I’ve been curious about their GABA teas but didn’t want to commit to a large quanity so I ordered this iced. A few sips later and I ran back to the shop to buy the 70g brick. That’s how impressive this tea was. It had a smooth, fruity flavor with a honeyed sweetness. Some hints of spice and baked fruit.

I didn’t know GABA tea could taste like this. My only basis for comparison are a budget GABA oolong from TTC and an Alishan GABA green tea from Taiwan Sourcing. Both had some off-ish notes and struck me as something one would tolerate drinking in exchange for the health benefits of GABA. Not so here. It’s a delicious tea that’s enjoyable on its own.

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Spices, Stewed Fruits


I had this gong fu style when I was in Camden :)


Some of the GABA teas I had earlier in my explorations had a bit of funk. Either I got used to it or the finishers have improved the process because I don’t get the funk anymore. Definitely one of my favorite processing methods for tea now.
