I find this tea pretty groovy. It’s sweet and woodsy and comforting and refreshing… And for some reason I really like the sound the little pellets make as I toss them into my teapot. It’s so cheerful and tinkly. How do they make those little pellets, by the way? And why is it only ginseng teas that are pelleted?

Some quick impressions (typed up between stolen moments at work):

Scent: Faintly like fresh hay and green leaves. Some sweetness.
Taste: Sweet and refreshing!! Very root-like with some fresh green earth. This has been steeping for awhile in my travel mug, so the taste is a bit toasty too.

I really like this tea—I like its sweet earthy green-ness. And it looks strangely cool also—like little dusty green pebbles of tea. They stay predominantly pebble-y while brewing too, with just a couple here and there gaining the courage to unfurl.

OH! I just love your way with words – the tea leaf personification is so lovely and musical and poetic… “just a couple here and there gaining the courage to unfurl.”

Thanks Lauren!! :)

I was somewhat worried by this tea…my only experience with “ginseng” and tea was a Stash’s Ginseng Tea disaster. I was pleasantly suprised by this tea. Its very light..in fact I’m not getting much, if any ginseng. Perhaps a slight, little tingle after the fact.
The visual appeal of this tea is lacking…rabbit pellet tea, that’s what one co-worked called it; but, the taste is a nice, mild oolong. A bit of vegetable in the flavor, but not grassy.

Hmm….the pellets look like rabbit pellets. The blend contains licorice. But the licorice is not noticeable AT ALL. This is a mild oolong. Others have said it is woodsy. And it is. There is a vegetative aroma this tea. Smooth. Not bitter.

BUT-not sure if I like this one personally. The woodsy flavor is sooo subtle….I just like my teas w/more flavors… So, I am thinking it is MEH

The pellets don’t look too appealing, and during the steep they don’t do much more then expand a little.
The aroma is sweet, and the taste is new to me, and quite pleasant. But I can’t place it. Maybe it’s the ginseng, or maybe it’s the tea. I didn’t taste any licorice.

I was able to get about 15 infusions in my gaiwan with this tea. Not going to lie, I probably could’ve done a few more, but I ran out of water (of all things). Has the perfect amount of sweetness and zero astringency. Leaves did not unfurl as much as I’d hoped, but still a lovely flavor and aroma nonetheless. Definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone!

It’s sweet and woodsy and comforting and refreshing… And for some reason I really like the sound the little pellets make as I toss them into my teapot. I find it relaxing watching the pellets trying to release into a leaf.

I am glad I took time to have a cup of this tea today.

Delivering mild elements of unripe stone fruit and honey, Teas Etc has taken what may have been a shallow and relatively uninspiring oolong and deftly rounded out its flavor profile with just the right amount of ginseng (and apparently licorice root powder)

I don’t often drink flavored teas but when I do I drink Ginseng Oolong.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

PS: Bust up the pebbles after they’ve steeped for a while for a MUCH headdier cup.
