Gabalong Health Tea
The special processing of this oolong tea raise the levels of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid up to ten times that found in other high quality teas. It is this GABA that is so good for us. Among its well researched benefits are lowering of blood pressure (do not take if you have hypo- tension) and prevention of cell mutation. Increases levels of human growth hormone which can help burn fat, eliminate cellulite, improve energy levels, cardiac output, skin elasticity, memory, endurance and bone mass. Taken one hour before bedtime it enables a deeper sleep and aids relaxation. It is a very good cure for a hangover! In Japan it is taken as part of the diet and is also given to children to stimulate mental alertness. Our Gabalong is made with high quality tea to guarantee maximum GABA content, twice the requirement to be classified as such a tea.
This Gabalong oolong tea has almost twice as much GABA content than is required to be classified as Gaba tea. Although lacking the complexities of flavour found in Ali Shan, it has an incredibly rich flavour in the cup. Notes of caramel toffee are complemented by the ripe fruit flavours like cooked apples. There are also hints of chocolate and mountain flower notes that flicker in the cup as it cools. A healthy and delicious tea! Learn More

In order to make this, we have had to use tea leaves from very high up the mountains, where the best quality is found. Higher quality, higher 'Gaba' content to start with. Normally, these leaves are made into the famous 'Jade Oolong' of Taiwan and in actual fact the farmer we have worked with does not understand why we want to do this! However, we British love our black tea, our customers have asked for it and so it has arrived! It has a lovely, malty character with hints of raisins and chocolate and is very smooth. Learn More
This high grown, hand picked tea is grown on the Ali Mountain in central Taiwan. The special processing that increases the health giving Gamma Amino Butyric Acid content also changes the flavour of this tea too. It is very deep and mellow with a natural cinnamonic fragrance and a rich, malty flavour. Made from the same strain of tea bush as our 'Ruby' black tea. Learn More
