Taste and aroma
The bouquet of brewed tea is light, vivid and has spicy-floral with notes of creamy biscuit and fruit candies.
The aroma is tender, fresh, multifaceted and with a little spicy-biscuit.
The taste is rich and full-bodied. It is soft, sweetish, with delicate sourness and spicy nuances, transforming into a lingering finish.
This Gaba Oolong was made at the territory of the Alishan natural reserve in central Taiwan. During the treatment, tea leaves passed through vacuum fermentation and were baked on charcoal at low heat.
Brew the tea with hot boiling water (90-95°C) in a porcelain gaiwan or a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 4-5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 12 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds), increasing the steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to approximately 12 times.
