Ginseng oolong has long been a popular tea. This new very high Imperial grade is the ultimate in ginseng oolong. The rolled leaves are coated with powdered ginseng, which produces a wonderful smooth and balanced cup. Ginseng is claimed to be one of the world's famous aphrodisiacs, so perhaps there is more than one way to enjoy this tea...
Oolong teas have always been enjoyed by those who are serious about tea. They are partially or semi-oxidized teas. Depending on the production methods used, oolong teas fall into two categories - dark open leafed or greener balled. Both offer a beautiful fresh and complex tea drinking experience.
The darker oolongs can be infused several times, giving a soft, fruity, pale amber liquor with a honeyed character. The greener oolongs give a very pale amber-green liquor and have a wonderful fragrant character comparable to narcissus or hyacinth. Both can be infused several times. Oolongs are traditionally produced in China and Taiwain.
