Tea: Ginseng Tea (Noname)


A gift from a friend, brought from China as far as I know.

I’m opening up several teas that we have at home, most have no names on them, so they’re hard to identify. This one only says “ginseng tea”.


100°C, 2–3 minutes

The leaves are tightly rolled in balls, dark-greyish-green in color.

When steeped, the tea has a fresh sting, feeling revitalizing. It leaves a strong, almost minty, aftertaste in the mouth (ginseng, after all). When oversteeped it gets quite bitter.

Not your everyday tea, but I’ll be drinking it on and off whenever I need a dash of energy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
