This tea came from my recent swap with AJRimmer.

I’ve liked the ginseng oolongs I’ve tried in the past, so I figured it would be interesting to try a green tea with ginseng. This looks to be a sencha, so I was surprised to be read that it’s a Chinese green tea. I assume the red wood splinter-looking things are the red sandalwood mentioned in the ingredients? They turn an even more stunning bright red color once wet.

The base tea here is very mild – it tastes like a combination of grass and dry leaves. It’s quite smooth and pleasant. I can definitely taste the ginseng, which (to me) always tastes sweet and earthy with a bit of a mineral note. It’s not as strong here as in a ginseng oolong, but it’s a lovely supporting flavor. There is a touch of strawberry that compliments the other notes nicely, and it’s not too weak or too strong. I’m not sure I taste the sandalwood, but it may be blending in with the ginseng.

Overall, this is a lovely subtle tea that is in perfect balance. It’s sweet but earthy and fresh at the same time. I should really remember to buy a ginseng oolong the next time I order from Teavivre or somewhere similar…
