GABA oolong is a specially processed tea which is flushed with nitrogen during the what is traditionally an ‘oxidization’ process, this creates GABA, gaba aminobutyric acid, in the tea leaves, the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The taste will be slightly sour, a sometimes bit sweeter, savory, and malty, rather than a fresh vegetal or floral one. The cup has a creamy body with a pronounced, lingering sweetness. The fragrance is herbal with the starchy sweetness of banana chips, malt dominates the tasting notes, with a textured liquor.
