It took me awhile to get my nerve up to have this tea. This came with the August monthly pkg from YS. After having the ginseng oolong which I really liked I thought I would give it a try. I brewed it up following YS directions on their webite.

This tea looks just like the picture. It looks like little broccoli florets. Dry the smell is a strong sharp scent. Can’t think of anything it’s similar tom so can’t really describe it.

Infusion one. It brews up with barely any colour. A pale pale pale yellow. Almost looks like water but there’s plenty of flavor. It was very sweet with a sharp but muted bitterness. There was also the spicy taste of the ginseng. Overall it wasn’t that bad. It was a bit strange to me but still good.

Infusion two – The bitterness got a bit stronger in this infusion. I didn’t like as much as the first. The spicy ginseng taste was stronger too. Whereas the first infusion was mostly about the sweetness, this one was more about the strong ginseng flavor and bitterness.

Infusion 3- Wow, everything was so strong on this one. Bitterness got so bad. It reminded me of Kuding tea which has a bitter/sweetness taste. I couldn’t drink the last infusion. It was way too bitter.

It would be interesting to pair a small amount of this tea with a pu-erh (as YS suggests on their website). I might try that with the small amount I have left. So far I wouldn’t be enticed to buy this tea no matter how healthy it is for me.
