Zhong Guo Cha O-7-11-2 A Ji Ren Shen Wu Long Cha (Tai Wan Cha)
6.25/50g = 3.55/oz = 56.8/lb

This is their ginseng(ren shen) added to a green oolong, its cheaper one of 2.

leaf looks like droppings, after brewin, there seems to be clumps of powder that basically molded around the tea leaf to make the little poo like nuggets. if that is ginseng powder, man that sure is alot of ginseng 🙂

1.5scoop thingy -> 4oz ~180F x 3min =
smell: minor,
flavor: i’d say dense warm liquid, …minor green oolong feel & some minor nutty?cashew?, but then, upon swallow a sweet sensation in the back of the throat, then as you open the mouth air coming in you sense a sweet sensation on the tongue, palate. pretty long lasting this sweet aftertaste.

and vividly reminds me of the experience with TenRen’s ginseng oolong “King’s Tea”. TenRen’s while it had more green oolong flavor, the ginseng flavor was not as pronounced as this tea here.
Others call ginseng wulong “Lan Gui Ren”

Overall: strong sweet aftertaste, not much oolong flavor, but anywho- not really my thing.
