Though many think this tea is a product of modern times, the winning combination of using tea and ginseng was already mentioned in 《本草拾遗》 中记, a historical Chinese text dated from 741 BC. It wasn't until around 500 years ago, when Ginseng oolong became a royal drink, served as atribute tea to the emporer. That's why this tea is also called the 'King's tea' or 'Orchid Beauty' (Lan Gui Ren), referring to an emperor's concubine in the Tang Dynasty.
