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!

I found this to be best with a tiny addition of sugar (my taste buds find more depth that way) and leaving the leaves in the cup itself. The second infusion often beating the first for roundness.
Refrigerated with a couple of slices of lemon made the best ice tea I have achieved - with an almost lychee hint to it (keep the lemon to a minimum though).
This is my everyday tea now. (Posted on 30/07/2007)
