Oolong tea can already have a strong scent, which is usually woody. This oolong is combined with ginseng, which makes for an extremely strong dry leaf scent. The rolled leaves have a soft and powdery texture, which gives an interesting appearance with it’s dirty green color.
Steeping provides a less ginseng and more wooden oolong aroma, with a wonderfully deep and clear bamboo tone.
The flavor does have a familiar woody oolong, with a bit of sweet aftertaste that creeps up behind your tongue. It is quite strange, as it is almost a biting sweetness that, at times, can extend to the back of the roof of your mouth.
Aside from the sweet biting aftertaste, this is an oolong without any surprises.
