TTB Tea #5:
I love Adagio’s loose ginseng green so I was excited to try this- and just the tea for the morning. It was picked at random so God must have really known I needed it.
1 bag (2.33g) 6oz purified water.
I steeped it for the full 4 min (2-4 suggested) because I wanted to see if it got too bitter/medicinal. The liquor is a surprisingly dark golden orange, but aroma is just as surprising because it isn’t as strong as I expected (feared?). It’s vegetal, yet smooth and sweet. When I take sip, I’m even more curious as to the base that is used. This is not the over steeped cuppa I expected. It’s vegetal, smooth, and sweet. There is a slight bitterness from the ginseng, but it’s not overly bitter at all. Happy tongue!
