Gaba Oolong Gaoshan

Gaba Oolong “Alpine” was made in Nantou County in central Taiwan. During the treatment, tea leaves passed through light vacuum fermentation and baking at low heat (qing xiang).

Dry leaf: medium-size, spherically twisted lumps of yellow-green color. The aroma is warm, spicy-floral. The liquor is transparent, light yellow-greenish color.

The bouquet of brewed tea is light and vivid, spicy-floral with notes of lemongrass, green nuts and fruit candies. The aroma is tender and fresh, multifaceted. The taste is rich and full-bodied, soft, sweetish, with delicate sourness and spicy nuances, transforming into lingering finish.

Brew 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 steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 12 times.

Gaba Oolong “Alpine” is a lovely ceremonial tea – revitalizing and cheering.
