The Ginseng Oolong Experience: deep and grounding
These deep-green rolled orbs are coated in ginseng powder. They are beautiful to look at as the leaves unfurl with each steeping. The medium amber liquor reveals a refreshing, light-bodied, flavorful infusion.
Tasting Notes: rich, sweet, earthy
Ginseng Oolong brews up a cup with a pleasantly roasty aroma and a bright flavor that is herbaceous, toasty and faintly sweet. Notice the slight zing from the ginseng and the sublime sweetness of licorice. There is a combination of honey notes and gentle astringency in the aftertaste.
Ginseng is considered an adaptogen, which may help support and regulate the body’s stress response system. Ginseng is easy to add to your diet in the form of this flavorful and beneficial tea. Plus it’s doubly good for you since oolong tea contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant.
