Product Description

Ginseng Wulong

This tea is made of fine wulong tea leaves soaked in the mixture of ground ginseng roots and licorice, which makes it a perfect choice for those who appreciate a bit of natural sweetness in their beverages. This tea will replenish your energy and help you stay awake and focused. The sweetness of the licorice dominates the renshen’s flavor for the first two or three brews. After that, the characteristic taste of wulong will come forward.

Why we like it?

This wulong can become a gateway into authentic tea drinking tradition for those who are used to aromatized teas, coffee, and blended beverages. Roman often takes a thermos filled with freshly made Ginseng tea to his morning classes. Miha likes to include it in casual tea ceremonies where he can share it with people who don’t normally drink tea. Whenever they ask for a refill, it’s a mission accomplished. :-)

Ginseng comes from the Chinese word renshen, which literally means “root shaped like a man”. The plant is often used for making energising medicines and herbal stimulants. Chinese have been mixing it with tea for a long time. Mildly oxidised leaves of wulong tea have proven to be the best match for the root, and this tradition has gradually evolved into the “pellet-shaped” rolled-up leaves of wulong tea that we are so used to these days. The licorice root is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to boost immune system, improve digestion, and restore vitality.

General steeping suggestions

Tea can be steeped in a tea pot, gaiwan, or a strainer placed right in your cup. Feel free to experiment with time, temperature, and quantity. If tea feels a bit strong or bitter, just use less leaves or steep it for a shorter period of time.

The purpose of the first brew is to rinse the leaves, so it shouldn’t last more than five seconds and should be discarded. Pour the hot water again. This time, steep it for longer periods. Avoid leaving the leaves soaking in water between brews, because it makes tea taste bitter and steals a lot of its flavor. If used properly, about six grams of tea leaves can yield several middle-size cups of excellent tea.

Chinese people enjoy the original taste of tea, so they never use milk, sugar, or lemon.

    One of the best teas I´ve ever had! Me and my family fell in love with it the first moment we had it :-)

    This is the perfect first choice when you’re starting in the world of quality teas. If you’re used to teas in bags with different aromas and thinking of trying some quality tea, but are worried that you won’t like it, try this tea.

    It is sweet and has a distinctive aroma that is likable from the first sip. You don’t have to be an expert tea drinker to appreciate it as in some other top quality teas.

    On the other hand it’s not a tea that you can drink every day. That is also because it’s very distinctive aroma. If you try to drink it every day, you’ll probably get tired of it.

    I think it’s an ideal dessert type of tea.
