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.
