 (19 reviews)

type: green

origin: china

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Fresh and crisp green tea from China with the energizing flavor of ginseng, accented with dried ginger. Sweet, earthy green aroma, notes of fresh hay and delicately spicy herbs. Pleasantly bittersweet without being medicinal. Soothing, soft finish. A very grounding cup of tea. Steep at 180°F for 2-3 minutes

      It's been said by Adagio that their green tea base is similar to sencha so maybe the combination of ginseng and sorta-sencha might look good on paper. In reality, I found it a little jarring in a way that's hard to explain. I've never had ginseng before but I really don't think this is where it shines.

      This was a nice and light green tea. Adding a little sugar brought out some nice flavors.

      Nicely flavored green tea. The ginger is mild. Good unsweetened or with a drop of honey. Resteeps well.

      Tasted like green tea. Couldn't pick out any extra flavor notes. Not bad, but nothing special for me.

      its pretty good the ginger isnt overwhelming at all but it didnt taste enough like green tea if you know what i mean but regardless i think anyone would like it if they enjoy green tea

      Pretty nicely flavored green tea. Very relaxing. You do have to be careful with your temp and steep time.

      Strong ginseng/green flavor. I didn't taste any ginger, which I really would have enjoyed.

      I dont understand the point of adding ginseng flavor, add ginseng or leave it out. The ginger can stand on its own

      Solid green tea with an energy and flavor kick! Might be a good entry tea into flavored green teas for those unfamiliar with them since it's subtle.

      Very good tea but be careful with temperature and time brewed. Not a pleasant smell in my opinion but great taste.

      I know I say this a lot. But this is also one of my favorite teas. The ginseng gives it a nice kick, almost spicy, but not peppery. Just adds a nice 'zing'. It also gives me great energy! So when I feel like I need green tea, but also a little pep in my step. This is my go to. Its a very nice earthy, almost 'muddy' (but not in a bad way! think mineraly!) taste. One that I absolutely LOVE ginseng for!

      This is a great tea with a hint of ginger and ginseng

      As someone else said, this tea is great with honey. Nice green tea with well balanced ginseng

      I love adding honey to green tea for a relaxing tea.
