From Taiwan Tea Crafts

GABA Tea is one of a rare bread of teas that was initially developed, not only for its resulting drinking enjoyment, but rather for its purported health benefits. If you are not familiar with this aspect, check out the info tab below. Now that this is said, we need to admit that the best thing about GABA tea is that it is wonderfully good in the cup! This tea is one of the most accessible, easy drinking teas we propose. The special, oxygen-deprived environment that increases the content of GABA while oxidising the leaves, also smoothes out the tannins leaving a crisp, slightly tart, but never bitter feeling in the mouth. This world’s first production using Red Jade TRES-18 cultivar is very different tasting than our Lot 201 GABA and our classic Red Jade Black Tea. It has a nice round roasted oats nose brought about by the light roasting of this Lot. The full bodied flavour of a Red jade Black tea with slightly tart fruit compote is generous and refreshing. Just like it’s cousin, this GABA tea not only makes a beautiful hot beverage, it is fantastic as a refreshing iced tea!

I couldn’t get into it, not what I’m looking for in an oolong. Kind of squash-like. Okay if you use a small amount of leaf, I guess, but not the best from TTC.
