From Čajový Dom

An interesting gem from Taiwanese production processed into balls in the typical way that Tie Guan Yin tea was originally processed, but without roasting. Therefore, it is classified as an oolong, even if the oxidation of the leaves took place up to 90%. The high percentage of leaf oxidation gives the tea milky rice tones resembling hints of semolina, After steaming the leaves smell of traces of sea salt like Ruby # 18 from the Sun Moon Lake area in contrast to a full surprisingly sweet infusion without any traces of tannins. Tea has a high content of GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), thanks to which it has a positive effect on the brain and CNS, it helps in concentrating, learning and regulating the sleep cycle.

[2021 harvest]

A very pleasant, uncomplicated, and medium-bodied oolong here. It is highly oxidized and smells a bit like some Taiwanese black teas – sweet, flowery and nutty. There are only few woody or forest-like notes though, they come throughout the session.

The taste, on the other hand, is quite woody and bittersweet. The pear flavour that is characteristic of similar GABA teas is here as well, but in moderation. Late steeps veer into more vegetal and herbaceous territory that’s a little bit like a that of some Dong Ding oolongs. In the aftertaste, I get a nice molasses sweetness that accompanies mild fruity sourness.
