OOLONG TEA GABACHA
molten butter, fruity, subtly sour
Gabacha is the remarkably prosaic name for “tea containing gamma amino-butyric acid” with welcoming nerve-calming qualities naturally occurring in this special strain of tea. Moreover Gabacha has a wonderful warm, mellow buttery aroma making for a consummate feel-good libation.
The high-tech star among our varied line-up, this exceptional Taiwanese cultivar undergoes a special process of nitrogen infusion to preserve its especially high content of the gamma amino-butyric acid (GABA) – scientifically linked to enhanced memory retention and calmer nerves. While the tea’s novel process imbues the large leaves with a reddish-brown hue, it also highlights their hidden spice. The golden-brown cup brims with fruity notes ranging from apple to pomegranate, rounded out by the warmth of nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices of the winter-warming variety. What's more, this dark oolong lends itself remarkably well to cold-brewed infusions – developing a sweeter flavor and retaining more of its prized GABA.
