Liquid Proust GABA Oolong Tea Review

I don’t really have much information on this tea except that Andrew from Liquid Proust has been repurchasing this tea since 2017.

Tea Specifications

Tea: GABA Oolong
Vintage: 2020


I decided to brew this tea in a small glass pitcher using distilled water and strained through a stainless steel strainer.

I then rinsed the tea for 5 seconds in hot water.

First Steep

Steeped for 30 seconds.

A strange sweetness. People say this flavor is often akin to sweet potato, and I would find it hard to disagree, although I would say it’s probably more of a yam note.

Notes of almond, straw, yam, white peach, and cream.

Second Steep

Steeped for 40 seconds.

Some green vegetation notes have developed.

A bit of bitterness has appeared as well.

There also seems to be a slight tang to the flavor profile, but it’s strange, because it still has a distinct underlying yam-like sweetness.

Third Steep

Steeped for 50 seconds..

This steep is a little lighter in flavor then the previous steeps, but it’s still good to drink.


I haven’t had any other GABA oolong teas to compare this to, but it certainly has a unique taste.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
