If you liked our rolled Assam tea, GABA Assam will probably be to your liking as well.

As it happens, GABA teas are most often made from oolong material. And this is, in fact, for a good reason. Oolong material — Camellia Sinensis var. Sinensis and its hybrids — is more plastic in organoleptic than the restrained, austere Assamica. However, GABA–fashion has been gaining momentum in recent years, and even GABA sheng no longer surprises anyone.

Organoleptic properties

The aroma of washed tea is classic, bread and plum, without fire.

In the taste, are sour plum, rye bread, and some medicinal herbs like chamomile and St. John’s wort.

But that’s at first. In the middle steeps, when the tea opens up better, a bunch of new interesting flavors emerges: sweet sandalwood, linseed oil, and pecan nut. If you have trouble remembering pecans, imagine walnuts, but with a sweeter and more delicate soul.

If you brew it stronger, you get a tartness with a returning sweetness – hello Assamica.

Conclusions

This tea is stricter than our GABA teas made from oolong varieties, but definitely not without elegance. The taste is dense, rich, I would even say assertive.

The notes of sandalwood, pecan, linseed oil, and herbs can pleasantly surprise sophisticated GABA people.
