Deep, dark and delicious, the heavily roasted Oolong ginseng tea is reminds us of some coffees, if coffee was made by Shaolin Monks.  The addition of wild Gynostemma (an immune-boosting herb) gives this tea an other worldly sweetness that lingers on the edge of the palette.

Deep & Roasty

Heavy roasting on a tea is one of the only ways to remove caffeine without removing flavor, and deep roast on this tea makes it the perfect all day drinker.  This ginseng tea gets its name from being blended with wild decocted Gynostemma, a powerful adaptogenic compound.  After harvesting the Gynostemma boiled to and reduced into a fine medicinal powder which is expertly rolled into each leaf during production.

Bagua Shan, is a hotspot for amazing every day drinking tea. It is one of the places on the slow but steady movement towards organic, sustainable agriculture.
