Ginseng oolong tea is oolong tea, often greener (less oxidized) high-mountain oolong tea, that has been blended with ginseng, an herb valued for its medicinal properties. This blend is sometimes referred to as king's tea, emperor tea, or emperor oolong tea, or similar names.
Ginseng tends to have a strong, earthy aroma which is not normally considered pleasing on its own; it is rarely used as an ingredient solely for taste, instead being included primarily for health reasons. However, the smoothness and sweetness of high-grown, greener oolong teas can complement the flavor and aroma of ginseng, and the earthy characteristics of both oolong tea and ginseng blend well.
