lulinginsengpowerLu Lin is a tea company that originated in Belgium. They get most their tea directly from tea gardens in China and they’ve recently expanded to India, Sri Lanka, and South Africa. This Ginseng Power tea is a described on their website as being a feisty blend that contains Ginseng Oolong, Mate, Gotu Kola, Licorice, and ginger. LuLin’s Ginseng Oolong is an award winning tea and is one of LuLin’s most popular teas, making me excited to try it. I read that they make this oolong by coating the oolong leaves in licorice and ginseng.
This tea was intriguing to me as I looked at it. You can see chunks of ginger and the pretty green oolong leaves. As I smelled it, I mainly smelled the spicy ginger and the licorice which combine nicely. The oolong also made this tea smell like a damp forest. I steeped 2 teaspoons in 3 cups of water for about five minutes. I would say that the tea tastes a little different than it smells. It smells sweeter than it tastes. The leaves really smelled like licorice but as I drank this tea, I tasted more of the woody oolong and bitter ginseng. I really enjoyed this more earthy taste. I did add honey to this tea after a few sips though. I think the honey helped tone down the bitter oolong and mate. I also loved the subtle hint of licorice with the ginger flavor.
As I first looked at this tea, I wondered why they called it Ginseng Power, apart from the fact that Ginseng increases stamina. I wondered if they referred to the flavor or the benefits of this tea. I would say they probably referred to both. This tea is indeed feisty as they said in the description due to the bitter, spicy flavors. The mate and oolong have caffeine to give you energy. The Gotu Kola, often used in chinese medicines, improves mental clarity and relieves anxiety. I would say that this is a super tea to help you get through any long day. I would definitely drink this tea in the mornings when I have a lot to tackle.
