Tea Review: Blue People (Vital Tea Leaf)

Blue People
Vital Tea Leaf
Type: Flavored Oolong
Origin: Taiwan
Product Description:  This popular house blend contains medium-bodied High Mountain Oolong with Panax ginseng powder and licorice root. It is beautifully balanced with a vibrant and complex aftertaste that engages the whole palate long after each sip.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with ginseng powder and licorice root.

The infusion is light yellow with a sweet aroma of licorice and ginseng and a taste of sweet, cool, licorice and ginseng with a long, sweet, mouth-watering finish.

This oolong produced the same results through three identical steepings with no fading of flavor and the long, refreshing finish is particularly nice. I'm reminded of the Finnish sweet licorice I tasted recently.
