|After years of taking a break from this tea (i did like it back then as well!) I feel that today the "good" rating is due to its a bit overly sweet licorice-y taste - everything else about it is great - beautiful colour of its liquor, good clean taste. |
|This was my first tea from teaspring, and i liked it very much.
Nice, smooth, sweet ginseng taste, refreshing.
There is only one minor negative thing: the 4th-5th brewing does not have the intensity that i hoped.|
|Насыщенный вкус и аромат, прекрасный чай на каждый день.|
|Very good tea! Thanks))) All my family and loved ones people liked the taste of this tea!|
|Great tea, with a rich taste. Ginseng leaves pronounced aftertaste. Invigorates and gives strength is much stronger than any coffee!
I highly recommend|
|The first time I brewed this tea it was strong and distinctive and I could clearly taste the liquorice and the ginseng. This does not taste very much like other oolongs.
When I brewed the tea again (with new leaves) it tasted of almost nothing... I don´t know why.|
|Magnificent tea! Can be Toped up with water 9 times and it is still delicious. Greatest quality product.|
|purchased for all my family members! excellent tea aroma! enjoyed it every day! better to taste than to speak about it =))|
I agree with others that the liquorice is a little strong.|
|I don´t like the taste of this tea, maybe other person like it. sorry|
|Strong and Bodied as is; lasting multiple infusions. This tea is no hype though. This is good oolong, lasting and worth the interest at the price. |
|Прочитала, что чай - женский. Ничего подобного, я женщина и мне вкус не понравился. Во-первых, мне он сильно пахнет лекарственной солодкой, а не орхидеей, а во-вторых, слишком много мусора в этом чае, больше брать не буду.|
|Sweet and pleasant, but nothing special. It just isn´t as good as I expected, especially considering that liquorice, ginseng, and oolong are among my favorite things.|
|Good tea. A little earthy flavor with very sweet aftertaste.|
|This tea is quite tasty and one of the better scented teas i´ve had. The aftertaste is unusual but very good! Lasts for several infusions.|
|My all-time favourite.It has strong taste so don´t overbrew it.|
|I like this tea, has a different (almost nutty) flavor. It is one you should try.|
|This is an easy to like tea even though not among my favorite. My friends like it very much and it is nice to offer as a tea with lots of easy taste.|
|This tea was what I expected and more. I could not discern if the sweetness was from the licorice or ginseng. I could not taste both, but the sweetness is what I desired in the aftertaste. What surprised me was the amount of times I could steep the leaves and still have acceptable flavour. I would highly recommend this tea. |
|Представьте себе, этот чай и сладок (благодаря лакрице) и имеет освежающее послевкусие. Любимым женщинам это должно понравиться!|
|Лучший чай для любимой женщины!!!!|
|My friend brought back some of this tea with her from China, and everyone she´s shared it with has absolutely loved it. Anytime we have a get together, we ask if she´s brought "the tea" (since we could never remember what it was called), and so when I finally found it here I was thrilled.
This is a very different tea - a lovely flavour and then this strangely sweet, honey-like aftertaste that lingers. My absolute favourite. :)|
|Wonderful! This is my second time purchase. Love the taste, after drinking the tea, it left the sweetness at yr throat...|

|simple and good.
a good tea for daily use. if your water quality is low, this tea is still ok. several brews possible according to water quality|
|this is a nice addition to anyones tea stash... i enjoy to try combining similar teas and varying quantities, the Lan Gui Ren brings a slightly sweet aftertaste to this... i dont enjoy it straight as it becomes more of a sweetened beverage since the licorice and ginseng overpower the tea.. i great to mix with the green wu long teas...|
|this is my second time buying this tea. it is a little more bitter than i remember but it still has that special aftertaste i enjoy with this tea.|
|this is a very surprisingly delicious tea ! It has a very unique finish that resembles a black oolong (it may very well be a black oolong for all i know)..
to me, it has a licorice type of finish|
|This tea here , well is not really a tea , if it is there is very little of the real tea leaf in it , the masters of China would frown big time on this , like jasmin tea , its flovored and covers up the taste of the tea . I asked for it and i got it . I was looking for the sweet taste of the ginseng , sometimes its infused with King’s tea and works out well , but with this one its infused with licorice , its good if you like candy .
Infuse in a tea pot or something wide to allow the nuggets to open .once again for the price it was good we get what we pay for and ask for . |
|very interesting tea. i really enjoyed the flavor and scent. Im not sure if it matters, but some of the leaves would not open fully, so i don’t know if that affects the tea|
|This last batch could have been better; the tea leaves barely expand and so there wasn’t much tea taste|
|One of my favorites (although I have tasted better Lan Gui Rens otherwise). But value for price here is outstanding.|
|This is hands-down my favourite tea. I can’t get enough of the sweet after taste|
|Excellent tea. I really enjoy it as do my children. I will be ordering it again.|
|I was introduced to this tea on a trip in China. I just love it. I had a hard time finding it again, but was happy when I stumbled upon this website. The tea has an aftertaste that keeps me coming back for more. With a hint of licorice and an all around smooth flavor, it is a household favorite. |
|Very good, but a little on the sweet side as compared to others of its kind. It has a wonderful finish!|

|a good daily tea, fresh and with good flavour|
|Sweet and easy to brew, this tea has been a favorite with my friends!|
|Nice flavor, forgiving during brewing. An easy tea to drink!|
|I didn’t love this one. Liquorice, orchids, ginseng and oolong are all good, but maybe not rolled into one neat little package in my teacup. I liked the scent, which was incense-like, more than the taste.|
|This is my favorite tea. I discovered a version in Guangzhou, China on a trip a few years ago. TeaSpring’s is not quite as strong or sweet, but it is an excellent Oolong with a mild sweet ginseng aftertaste. I drink it nearly every day.|
|New favorite tea. Sweet, lingering aftertaste. The leaves unfurl from the pellets and the sweetness diminishes with subsquent infusions. I am happy. |
|This is not the Lan Gui Ren that made me fall in love with the tea. I understand that the real tea-wonk looks down on those who flirt with the flavored greens. I am not a real tea-wonk. I love flavored teas. I like trying new ones.
I’m a bit disappointed in this tea. Last year I bought TeaSpring’s Lan Gui Ren and was enchanted by the aroma and the sweetness of the follow-thru. This year, there’s less of that. It’s still a delightful oolong and I’m on my third infusion right now. |
|strange tea. good. similar as a japonese tea. very fresh. it is good.|
|Another great batch. This has got to be my favourite type of tea!|
|Very nice, the taste is subtle and smooth. I especially like the sweet aftertaste.|
|I have had this tea and enjoyed it. However my last batch was terrible. It has a very strong licorice flavor.|
|Great tea, first tasted in China. |
|Very interesting flavor|
