drank Ginseng Vitality Oolong by teasenz
128 tasting notes

Water: 8oz

Leaves: solid medium ginseng dusted uneven leaves

Steep: 5m

Aroma: non-floral, Ginseng

Color: golden yellow

Clarity: good, it improved to great as i drank more

Taste:This is my first Ginseng Oolong tea! I’ve always wanted to try Ginseng infused tea so i was quite excited when i saw this one. Upon opening the packet the leaves look completely different from any thing I have seen before. The leaves were solid uneven dusty/powdered murky green color. Before brewing i watched a video on the company website and i noticed that the lady in the video didn’t rinse her leaves which is something i would normally do, but this time i knew not to do so. When making this tea the first time i realized i used wayy to many leaves 2.5tsp for 1 cup. They later unraveled as the tea was steeped. With that being said the taste was light i didn’t notice any special ginseng flavor. Overall i say this was an okay cup.

Thank you Teasenz for this sample!


I decided to give this one another go, this time using 1tsp of leaves for 8oz of water with a 4m steep. the color remained golden yellow, while the clarity improved i could see the bottom of my cup & the micro particles that escaped my strainer. The classic oolong aroma shined through with a hit ginseng. The taste was light and smooth.

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

Thank you Angel & Teavivre
