This tea from the line of oolong anaerobic fermentation has an interesting history of origin. During experiments in Nepal, producer decided to try beer fermentation. At that time, he had  ideas with fermentation in liquid into a "long box", they seemed to me a failure in advance. But by a lucky chance, during one of the experiments, in the process of sorting the raw materials, he had a whole basket of defective sheet. So he laid it tightly in a jug, filled it with a second bottle of San Miguel beer (the first went to tasting events) and put it off for 50 hours. After drying, to its  unexpected surprise and delight, he got gaba tea (a popular oolong anaerobic fermentation). He managed to make 2 more experiments from raw materials from Oolong and plans for the next harvest to make an expanded line of tea fermented in liquid.

The aroma of dry tea leaves: chocolate, dried fruits, black dried apricots. The aroma of brewed tea: sugar, skin, tomatoes, tops. This oolong has a light enveloping body. The taste is pronounced, acidic plum-grape turning into sweet tomatoes and tops. Tea has a fairly high oxidation state (30-45%), which adds a pleasant barrel tannin to the taste. The finish is sweet, hops and honey.

???? This tea is interesting thanks to the plum and tomato overlap, flowing one after another, at first you distinctly feel the plum, then this plum changes into tomato and so on until the last sip.
