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.
Ren Can Ginseng Oolong has a sweet, floral aroma. The taste is sweet, minty and vegetal. The aftertaste is sweet and long lasting. The tea leaves a dominant mouthfeel and chill that lasts for a long time.
The flavour becomes more balanced on the 2nd and 3rd steeps, when the flavour of the Oolong itself starts to open up and compete with the dominant flavour of the kuding and licorice root.
