This is from the little sample I stole from my Step Mom’s Christmas gift. If no one here tells her, then she never has to know that it’s not exactly 50g I’m giving her!

Made this as my morning mug to drink while walking to work. I’ve had a couple incarnations of Ginseng Oolong now, and somewhat shockingly the DT version has been the best IMO. This one is $15.00 for 50g, so if I hadn’t picked some up as a present for someone I never would have spent so much on it for myself when DT’s is only like $8 for the same amount.

It was really good though; essentially it tasted like ginseng. Kinda just like ginseng, but with a very subtle licoriceyness or anise flavour (3338) to it. I always struggle describing ginseng because it’s rich and sugary, but so natural and almost “earthy” tasting. It reminds me of trees. Big, lush trees. Someone should tell me how to describe ginseng so I can do it for myself. That’s a good plan.

I saved the leaf, so if Tre doesn’t toss it out I’ll eventually try a second infusion. This version has the oolong really solidly coated in it and one infusion wasn’t enough to wear it all down and let the leaves really expand.

I have a hard time describing it, too… It’s so sweet but it tastes mineral to me at the same time, sort of like fresh water from a stream.


I can handle ginseng sweetness much better than licorice, for some reason. And though I haven’t had any in ages (not even sure if I have any hiding somewhere), I recall it lasting for quite a few rather tasty infusions.
