Names: Lan Gui Ren, blue elegant, Ginseng Oolong

Ingredients: Chinese green oolong (renshen), ginseng root.

Origin: Fujian Province, China

Ginseng Oolong is an exclusive blend of high quality oolong tea and ginseng. It is produced by tightly compressing the tea leaves into the shape of tiny tablets.

The lovely combination of lightly oxidized green oolong and invigorating ginseng is well proportioned and pleasingly refreshing.

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 infusion yields an amber colored beverage with a mesmerizing orchid aroma.

The ginseng is used to enhance and sweeten the aftertaste, and its typical bitter tartness can not be tasted at all.

There’s a lingering combination of sweet and orchid aroma. You could feel the sweet even when you drink plain boiled water.

Thank you to Mackie for this sample!

Confession time: I’ve never had ginseng oolong before. I don’t actually know what ginseng tastes like.

Steep 1: Tastes like a nice toasty oolong

Steep 2: It kind of tastes like matcha, if matcha steeped in oolong tea instead of water. I find the brew very flavourful and milky. Fairly vegetal, also. Like I said, this tastes a lot like matcha.

Steep 3: Maybe a bit fruity (mango)?, toasted grain, matcha/green tea, honey

Oddly enough, this brews very golden orange, not green!

Flavors: Grain, Green, Milk, Toasty, Vegetal

The beginning is really sweet, right from the first steep, nice and thick ginseng flavours, cant really taste any of the leaf until much later in the session, it’s a bit grassy and earthy at first, and it develops a bit of lemon (maybe thats just part of what ginseng tastes like)
It gets a bit more complex in the middle, though still very much ginseng, and consistently sweet. Even after the leaves have unravelled.
Eventually most of the ginseng steeps out, after 10-15 steeps, leaving a .. not overly noteworthy tasting oolong; lemon, earth, wood, still with a hint of ginseng that never truly disappears. I actually quite enjoy it, even still, though I don’t have any other experience with ginseng oolongs. So maybe i’m not as credible as some, but I know that I like ginseng oolong! And this is certainly an affordable choice. It’d be interesting to try a ginseng oolong with a higher quality base, but I fear that this sort of thing is what manufacturers do with lower quality oolongs. Which is smart, because ginseng covers it well. Either way! A very enjoyable session :)

Also, this tea is what I’m basing ‘ginseng’ taste on, so if this is really bad ginseng, I’d have no idea! I can only describe it as sort of like matcha with a bit of ginger, earth, lemon, and some sort of root beery-ness

Flavors: Earth, Ginger, Grass, Lemon, Root Beer, Sweet, Wood
