This type of tea (I think I’ve seen it called king’s tea?) fascinates me whenever I see it, so I figured for the steep price of $4.34/50 g I should throw some into my Lochan order.

It’s proved very interesting. It smelled like an herb shop but very mild. I thought I could make out the scent of licorice which I think is added to these sometimes. The rolled-up leaves look completely encased in a powdery substance and took longer to open up than normal. I expected it to taste pretty strongly of ginseng, but my first sip really surprised me; it just tastes like a dark, toasty oolong. But, as I proceed and especially on the second infusion I’m getting a strong aftertaste and a sweetness that really lingers at the back of my tongue. I’m still not sure what I’m tasting, but it’s an interesting adventure.
