These things are strong. You only need 2 pieces per mug. You can probably make 2 infusions with this. It does taste a lot like ginseng.

I generally don’t add sugar to my teas, but on occasion, I like to add honey or rock sugar to this.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 0 sec
Batrachoid

Ginsing oolongs are usually more medicinal in use than enjoyment so they’re usually quite strong. I might suggest a brand coated in licorice powder or mixing it with ginger. Much more palatable to me.

Well this isnt an oolong. its just pure ginseng flower, but you have good advice nonetheless. I actually really dislike licorice but ginger might be good. I could just simmer some fresh ginger and use the resulting liquid to brew these flowers. Then add rock sugar. :D

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
