From Rishi Tea

This tea is our original take on a classic oolong blend. Ginseng oolong combines medium oxidized and moderately roasted renditions of the Qingxin and Wu-yi varieties from Taiwan with organic ginseng, organic licorice root and dried apple pieces. These ingredients create a balance of sweet, bitter, sour, fruity and classic roasted flavors. This is a premium version of ginseng oolong unlike any other. We love the slightly acidic and refreshing note the apple pieces infused into this blend as well as the bittersweet nuance of the organic ginger.

Water: 212˚F / Boiling / Leaves: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces / Infusion Time: 4–5 minutes / Ingredients: Oolong tea, organic white ginseng, organic apple pieces, organic licorice root. / Origin: Rishi Blend

Sigh… I am really not a fan of this unfortunately. Do I even like drinks made with ginseng? Probably not. To me it smells like a stinky old root, which is actually what it is. I imagine this is a very good health tonic with ginseng, licorice and apple. It’s a little too much on the sour side with too much stinky root. A little too medicine-y so it will require sugar. If you like ginseng you may want to give this a try. Otherwise I can’t say I recommend it.

Second steep: it is fairly easy to pick out all the apple and ginseng so that’s what I’’m doing. it’s not a total loss. At least I’ll have a nice oolong.
