I’ve enjoyed this tea quite as bit as I’ve sampled it. Interesting, I’ve found it has different flavors different times I’ve tried it. This is more likely to do with my mood or setting than anything else, but my best experiences have brought out sweet, fruity strawberry notes. Overall, the flavor profile of this tea is similar to that of a black tea, with its relatively high oxidation levels, but does not have the same malty “blackness” of a black tea. I’ve also found hints of a roasted flavor here, but I was brewing in a vessel I’d just brewed a roasted tea in.
Overall, quite a tasty tea! I don’t know if I can say anything toward the health benefits of it being a GABA tea, but it is quite tasty.
