Well made GABA tea always makes me happy. Lots of full flavor here. To me it has a raw cacao quality that I love. It gets fruity and holds up for many rounds. I have also enjoyed long steeps of 1-3 hours over a small flame.
Thanks to the plantation that’s located in the deep mountain environment with opulent sunshine exposure, our GABA tea material comes the 100% Jin Xuan varietal from Alishan area with a incomparable quality.
This is technically not a roasted oolong, but it’s oxidized at about 30%, which gives it a golden-yellow tea soup with buttery yam-like taste and a honey aroma. If you are a fan of medium level roasted Alishan oolongs then you’ll probably enjoy this “Mi Xiang” style GABA oolong!
GABA stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, and the content of this tea is aournd 400 mg per 100 grams which is higher than most of the GABA tea in the market. Through a series of research, Japanese scholar Omori Masashi ( 大森 正司 ) confirmed it has a very powerful antihypertensive effect thanks to its extremely high content of γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) compared to other teas. The GABA content adds a thick layer of baked sweet potato taste to the tea and is proven to offer the drinker a soothing or relaxing feeling. GABA processing, which involves shade growing and then nitrogen sparging was developed by the Japanese and later perfected by the Taiwanese. The result is a tea that tastes great, at once stimulating and soothing to the nervous system.
