    The ginseng blossom is a lesser-known traditional chinese medicinal flower, which Xingyang has pressed into their famously clean and crisp shu pu’er as part of their series of pu’er bars based on traditional Chinese medicinal fruits and flowers. The ginseng flower is a perfect compliment to Xingyang’s rich brown-sugar and spice heavy shu pu’er blend.


  • 'Whether it’s pressed with chrysanthemum and roses or stuffed into oranges and miniature clementines, there are few things more traditional that scenting pu’er. Adding traditional medicinal herbs and flowers to pu’er is, for many, both reasonable and delicious'
