This is an invigorating blend of Oolong tea and ginseng. Oolong teas are known for their orchid-like aroma and lingering sweet aftertaste. They’re also effective in alleviating or preventing indigestion. Research also suggests that they may help to lower cholesterol levels. Ginseng has long been renowned as a medicinal herb. It’s frequently used for enhancing physical and mental endurance, strengthening resistance to stress and fatigue, boosting the immune system and revitalizing cell activity. A lot of research has also focused on the properties of ginseng which seem to aid in preventing heat disease, because it helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol. Ginseng may also stop the growth of some cancerous tumors.
This tea has the rich, crisp taste of oolong with a stronger, pleasing aftertaste. The aroma is fragrant and the hue is golden-brown. This tea is produced by tightly compressing the tea leaves into the shape of tiny tablets. The infusion yields an amber colored beverage with a mesmerizing orchid aroma. There’s a lingering combination of sweet/tartness in the aftertaste.
Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot half-full with tea leaves. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.
