We first discovered this classic oolong at a Gong Fu Chinese tea ceremony. This particular tea is a special find, as it is crafted with Ti Kuan Yin for a special flavor. The ginseng and tea are nicely balanced and will develop well over multiple infusions.
Insider Tip: This tea is rolled in real ginseng and sweetened with a touch of licorice root. This tea will give you a good kick, wake you up, and help you concentrate.
Caffeine Level: Medium.
Oolong teas are commonly known as partially oxidized because the oxidation allowed in processing varies between that of a green tea and that of a black. Varying between 30-70% oxidation, oolongs are produced into two main varieties: a darker, open-leafed style (such as our Dark Goddess), and a greener, rolled-ball style (such as our Jade Oolong). Darker oolongs tend to have a soft, fruity character with undertones of stone fruit. Greener oolongs offer a more green infusion with a more floral character.
Ingredients: Oolong tea, ginseng and licorice root.
