drank Ginseng Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
35 tasting notes

Wow, so this is maybe the first oolong tea that I’ve tried and enjoyed. Given the choice, I usually like to go for flavored or scented teas, I rarely go for straight teas, let alone an oolong variety.

The first brew of this tea had an overpowering taste of ginseng, with not a lot of the oolong flavor. The second brew however, was much more well-rounded. Both had intense flavor, without over-doing it or being bitter.

There’s a certain freshness to this tea, and the after taste is one of the most astringent that I know of. If you have ever chewed on licorice bark, you are already familiar with the feeling it leaves in your mouth. It’s refreshing, and I think it would be a good one if you were feeling a sore throat coming on, or weren’t feeling well.

Overall, it’s a neat tea. Not what I was expecting, but delicious in it’s own way.
