In China Ginseng Oolong is also called jade tea because its pellets are similar to the jade stone which is highly valued in China. Ginseng oolong is also considered by some to be somewhat of a health serum - it is made out of ground licorice herbs, kuding and ginseng which is also what gives the tea its special taste.
It has a sweet, herbaceous taste with a cool, refreshing aftertaste.
Best served in the morning, afternoon or before pulling an all-nighter since Ginseng Oolong is a good energy booster.
