Formosa GABA Oolong

Japanese researchers created GABA tea serendipitously in the 1980's. Wanting effective methods to preserve tea, not fully oxidized leaf was exposed to nitrogen. The glutamic acid inherent in tea was transformed to Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, or GABA for short. This selection is notable for its broad and interesting flavor profile, with notes of mango, peach and guava. The cup has a creamy body with a pronounced, lingering sweetness.

A must try

If you read my Milk Oolong review you'll learn I don't like "fragrant" teas, no less fragrant oolongs. This tea is definitely not fragrant, rather it's sweet and smooth. Upton's description is very accurate - you can definitely taste notes of mango, peach and guava. At lease try a sample.
