Boy, the ginseng is stimulating. It also cleared up my sinuses somehow. Definitely an effective pre-workout and cold fighter.
Now, it tasted like a dark roasted Tie Guan Yin-very herbal, mildy woodsy, earthy, with a sweet after taste after a rinse and 30 seconds. It was kinda week Gong Fu, so switched to Western at 50 sec, 2 min, 2 min and 30 seconds, and 3 min and 45 sec. Only then did I get a weird, sweet stone fruit and peachy after taste. I enjoyed this tea, but I wasn’t thrilled. I can say that I tried a thing on my tea hit list, and now I possess an effective medicinal tea.
Worth a try for newbies, but might go better with sugar or honey.
