It's been a long time since I tried a ginseng oolong, so I'm not the most experienced reviewer of this type of blend.

Dry leaf shows a dusty appearance, and has a strong but muted aroma, suggestive of greener oolongs, but perhaps more woody and earthy.

Upon brewing, the aroma is predominately of oolong and the ginseng influence is only subtle. A smooth, clear tea with an earthy, dusty, and surprisingly sweet aftertaste. This oolong is pretty easily recognizable from a pure oolong, but it's hard to tell exactly where the tea's aroma and flavor end and the ginseng begins. More astringent than I'd like, and I suspect some of the astringency is coming from the ginseng as oolongs with this nice an aroma are usually smoother.

This was pretty inexpensive, but I still prefer other oolongs form TeaVivre, and I can't see myself wanting to drink this every day.
