Bought this last year thinking it was teabags. It is a package of small packets of powdered ginseng tea. It has a flavor that I have never encountered before and don’t know where to begin describing it except to say it is bittersweet while only being a small touch bitter, just barely. I bought this last year on a trip into Chinatown at Ten Ren Tea. Ten Ren Tea is an interesting store although their store in Flushing only carries half of what their store in Manhatten carries. I really don’t know what to think of this tea. I could not list the ingredients in the tea description because most of them are not in the catalog.

The tea contains, Glucose, Korean Red Ginseng Root Extract, Lactose, Jujube Fruit Extract, and Ascorbic Acid.

This is perhaps the oddest tea in my cupboard.

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
