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.
