drank Ginseng Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

I’m going to be a bit of a black sheep here and be the first one to say that I’m really not a fan of the Ginseng Oolong. Even though I really wanted to be.

I had this as a hot cup to go. That may have been my problem – so I won’t write this one off completely at this point.

Drank it straight, and likely oversteeped with too hot water. I found that at the top of the sit it tasted like a good standard oolong, but it quickly took on this clinging sweetness that lingered long after the swallow. Weird sensation. I’m not used to sweetness with oolongs, so it really threw me off. As it continued steeping on my walk home, this became even more pronounced. I’d really like to try this again under different circumstances – shorter steep time, proper water temp, etc., to see if my experience improves.
