drank Taiwan GABA Oolong Tea by What-Cha
33 tasting notes

The first time I brewed this tea I didn’t quite know what to expect. I had heard much about how this tea was processed and I was excited to try something that was pretty unique. Along with being from Taiwan which is probably my favorite tea making region. The first time I steeped this I went crazy and went with a 6g/70mL ratio. The first steeps were incredibly sweet. The front notes just taste like deep baked cherries that were shoved in a pie with a bunch of spices like cinnamon. It reminds me a lot of my mom’s kitchen when she would back in the winter and let me have some warm cider (non-alcoholic). I’ve had this tea many more times and bought a pretty large amount after receiving the small sample I got from my first order at What-cha. Every time I make it those strong baked cherry notes transport me back in time. This tea is delicious at almost every temperature but I think 195 is the best for me. A little cooler you get more fruityness but like smokyness and less spices. Hotter and there is not enough fruitiness and a lot more smokiness.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Cherry, Cinnamon, Honey, Smoke, Spices
