This oolong has quite a unique appearance – instead of loose or rolled leaves it looks very much like hard, little pebbles. I gave the tea a quick rinse of a few seconds then steeped it for 4 minutes. I could smell the herbaly ginseng as well as a lightly roasted oolong scent. The flavour is smooth and slightly sweet with the herbal, slightly bitter ginseng notes coming in at the end of each sip. Oddly this tea seems to leave my mouth a little bit dry afterwards, but other than that it’s quite nice.
Nourishes your body… replenishes your energy… warms your soul! Oolong tea leaves are dipped in ginseng powder, hand rolled and then dry roasted in woks.
The Oolong leaves provide a floral, orchid like aroma and wonderful sweetness, while the ginseng adds a subtle tartness. In addition, the health benefits associated with the ginseng herb and tea makes an excellent choice to fight off the winter blahs.
