There maybe a few other options of GABA tea out there, but to produce one that is fine tasting as well as certified organic requires real experience, dedication and stringent process management. Presenting GABA Orange from Nantou, Taiwan. Our answer to those of you wanting naturally formed GABA from a nice tasting oolong, with that touch of orange wonderfully developed in the tealeaves themselves. Nature always has surprises for us. We just have to work with it to make it happen. ( What is GABA? )
Soft, citric and yet woody and warm aroma with hints of bread and cinnamon. Smooth, sweet infusion with touches of hawthorn and tints of apple. Distinct accents of juice from a Xinhui orange — a Chinese variety native to Xinhua County in Guangdong, softly sweet with a unique floral subtly. Lightly sweet aftertaste with that same distinct citric bite. The taste profile of this tea is a little different from one’s perception of oolong or even tea in general. Expect a small surprise.
Use a lower leaf amount to water ratio, say 1.5g to 200 ml to start with ( please note: tightly rolled tealeaves like this are heavier than they seem; use a scale to get yourself acquainted with the dry leaves first ) and infuse for longer, say 8 minutes. 95°C with top drop gives very pleasing result. This is not a tea for gongfu style, but rather an easy, relaxing drink throughout the day.
Note on the “Extra” batch
This current batch of GABA Orange is rare. We have managed to produce to a strength of 279 mg/100g* of natural GABA, over 100 mg higher than the normal high of all other similar products. We are not sure if we have already mastered the technique for such high concentration yet, so the next batch maybe back to normal. Maybe not. If you want GABA for its health effect, this batch is the one to stock up.
