This oolong has a really distinctive aftertaste not unlike licorice. It’s really… interesting and complex, but I’m still not entirely sure how much I like it. It’s worth continuing with to explore further, anyway.
Based on an old Chinese recipe, this oolong was once reserved for the imperial court in China. It was used to help stay sharp, balance the energy in the body, and maintain a good voice. It is quite possibly the perfect cup for the entertainers, or politicians!
Blending oolong infused with ginseng powder, with the sweet osmanthus flowers, the rustic ginseng flower and a touch of jasmine buds to round off the palette, Imperial Oolong will leave you a licorice like sweet aftertaste that is most memorable.
In Asia, oolong was particularly popular amongst people that wanted to be in better shape and have better skin. Many also love oolong for its “layers” of flavours as the leaves unfurls and Imperial Oolong is a a great example of this layering of flavours and aroma.
