Details

This Gabalong Oolong tea is grown on an organic farm in Nantou, Taiwan and has almost twice as much GABA content than is required to be classified as Gaba tea. It is made from leaves picked in the ‘Deer Valley’ in Taiwan. 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. The special processing of this oolong tea raises the levels of GABA up to forty times that found in other high-quality teas and it has the most Gaba content of all teas. GABA is allegedly good for us. Among the well-researched alleged benefits are lowering of blood pressure (do not take if you have clinically low hypotension) and prevention of cell mutation. Increased 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.

I can\'t claim that drinking this tea has improved my health - at least not yet, but the tea itself is a beautiful cup that is better with the second infusion. Notes of caramel and brown sugar are definitely prominent but there are subtler flavours - butter and vanilla and hints of nuts. All very complex and wonderful. (Posted on 29/01/2013)

A fantastic starting point for those who enjoy mellow but refreshing teas. Inexpensive but with complex tastes.

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)
