From Siam Tee Shop

Ginseng Oolong Tea from Doi Mae Salong, Northern Thailand, is a specially processed mixture of a fine Northern Thai Oolong tea (medium degree of fermentation) with Ginseng roots. In this process, originating in the ages-old Chinese tradition and knowledge of tea processing, the two ingredients combine to small green granules that slowly open up to leaves, when hot water (near-boiling) is poured upon them, releasing the flavor and active agents of both plants into the resulting tea beverage. Ginseng Oolong tea incorproates all the health benefits of green/Oolong tea and the ginseng root. The granules have a comparably stable consistence, requiring a rather long infusion time of at least 3 and up to 5 minutes. Alternatively, it can be prepared to the Chinese tradition, disposing a first infusion after 1/2 to 1 minute (giving the granule time to open up), with a second infusion of 2 – 4 minutes according to personal preferences. While the tea itself would be good for 2 – 3 infusions, a lot of the the Ginseng aroma is lost after the first one.

I’ve had many ginseng oolongs lots of them seem to be on greener less fermented/oxidized this one i think is medium and it brews up a nice dark amber brew with id just how i like an oolong, The ginseng coat don’t cling to the leafe forever either allowing the leaf to open up much faster than most yet there is still plenty ginseng flavor to this tea I really enjoy this tea, i knew it would taste good i’m very glad to have orederd it.
I can’t smell ginseng for some reason at all ever but the aroma of this one at first brew was reminiscent to a heavy baked tgy. very nice tea, i love it, i can’t smell ginseng but i taste it sometimes :)

I’ve never tried ginseng oolong before but I keep seeing it lately and thinking “hmm, I should try that”.
