Southern Ginseng Tea Information
Ginseng Oolong, also known as the “King’s tea” tea is a popular, flavored Oolong tea. It has the rich smooth taste of Oolong with a pleasant lingering after taste. Enjoyed by Asians everywhere and is an good “introductory” tea for people starting out on their Oolong tea journey.
Farming Methods: Natural farming techniques. Hand picked. Low pesticide
Production: Ball rolled. Heavy roast.
Ginseng Oolong originated from Taiwanese tea makers. They have always made this tea by blending the powder inside the fresh leaves and rolling it in during the rolling process of the fresh leaves. This way it ensures the flavour and sweetness is there uniformly and remains – even with multiple infusions. It was after the tea was introduced to mainland China about 20 years ago that the making process changed. Ginseng Oolong became in big demand in mainland China (and still is). The Chinese usually make Ginseng Oolong by covering the outside of the already rolled and processed Oolong tea with the powder.
Powder used: Jiaogulan powder
