Ginseng Oolong is made of 95 percent of traditional Oolong tea and 5 percent of American ginseng. American ginseng is a kind of panax, which can promote blood circulation and improve immunity. Ginseng Oolong tea does not only have the aroma of oolong, but also a particular flavor of American ginseng. In the manufacture of ginseng oolong, the American ginseng is mixed during the process of roasting. After 4 - 6 hours of roasting in the temperature of 200 - 220 degrees, the ginseng fragrance could be fully released as well as finely combined with the aroma of oolong tea leaves. The final production is more redolent as the aroma could last long in your mouth after swallow.
