Truly a favorite tea of mine. I need to write a full review on it.

I sampled this while visiting Vital Tea Leaf in San Francisco a few months back. It was not at all what I expected, but not bad. Just not something I’d drink regularly.

We found this wonderful tea at a tasting house in San Francisco. It has an awesome cool note on the back of the throat. It is perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Had a small cup of this (4oz), so I could sample it one more time before sending the last bit to Lala. It has a very nice lychee flavor too it, not overly done, just right! Thanks again Spencer for sharing a bit of this with me!

You’ll see pieces of ginseng in your cup of brewed tea. I like the fresh, sharp flavor of the 1st steeping.

This tea is more medicinal than for pleasure though you get used to the bitterness. It can be very strong in the second brewing so I typically drink a little at a time. Not as dry as a traditional green tea because it’s “bitter leaf” and apparently not from camellia sinensis. This is why I put it under both green and herbal. The color is a true, bright green. Definitely not for everyone.

As I steep several gaiwans to fill a mug, I take a moment to sample a tiny cupful from each steeping, enjoying the uniqueness before they are all put together in a more unique mixture.

Not feeling sick anymore, but anti-oxidant boosts are never bad.
