So, this is the second time I’ve tried ginseng oolong, the first one from Teavivre. I figured it wasn’t for me as Teavivre is pretty solid. When I saw Single Origin Tea sent me some to review and I was like “Doh! Not this tea again!” So, I decided to break up the black tea blend train I’ve been on today and give ginseng oolong another go. Maybe this one is different? The look of ginseng oolong is really cool and I like the concept of it being sweet and healthy like.
As I sip it, it tastes good – a nice light floral oolong vibe. I felt hopeful. Then it hit me end of sip – that sweet, lingering licorice tongue coating flavor that makes me want to sandpaper my tongue so I can’t taste it anymore.
Nope, 2nd time and still ginseng oolong isn’t for me. I’ll try it one more time (someother time) to fully try out ginseng oolong. It’s totally personal taste why I dislike this type of tea. Though, if you do like licorice teas you should really try this tea out.
