I wasn’t particularly excited about the idea of an oolong flavoured with ginseng. I brewed a pot and wasn’t initially sure what to think, so I passed it to my girlfriend. She screwed up her face really tightly when she took a sip, but I don’t think she’s too keen on oolongs in general. I think it’s a nice earthy oolong, and the ginseng adds some winter warmth to it without being too strong as a flavour on its own. I imagine having it with shortbread or hot cross buns or something like that. As the tea cools a bit, the flavour kind of separates out slightly and comes to the fore a bit more. I haven’t had much ginseng before. I find it a nice round flavour and a good addition to the tea. A final thought though: would I rather have oolong on its own or with ginseng in it? Unfortunately I’d rather have it on its own.
