River High

Ren Shen Wulong

  • Rank

    Extremely light and sweetly tingly on the sides of the tongue. Such a burst of after-sweetness. A slight bread or pastry taste.

There are lots of versions of this tea being sold all over China and Taiwan and it is often one of the first teas that draws newbies into true tea.

But, predictably, the quality varies considerably. Many versions use broken up tea leaves compressed together into pellet before throwing on a dusting of flavouring. If you find that the tea looks like smooth pellets instead of irregular balled Oolong then we would not recommend purchasing!

Our River High is made from proper ball rolled Oolong (take a look at the dry leaf) which is then rolled with real ginseng powder for a deeper, natural flavour. The result is a tea with an intensely lingering sweetness but without the saccharin chemicals of artificial flavours.
