Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Fong Mong Tea
Growing from organic natural ecological management tea plantation, with intentional nonintervention, being eaten by destructive insects, coordinating traditional Taiwanese heavy-fermented skill of tea-making, the natural tea leaves increase their individual flavor. The liquor it produces with bright and amber hue, containing a light honey sweet, is the super enjoyment best close to the Nature.
I have tried several different Oolong teas from Fong Mong Tea and I’ve been very impressed with everything that I’ve tried. This Organic High Mountain Oolong is equally as impressive!
The flavor is sweet with strong honey-esque tones that remind me of clover honey. There are hints of flower as well as a slight nutty tone to this cup. In the first couple of sips, I noticed a charcoal-y kind of flavor, but after those initial sips, this charred wood kind of taste made way toward a more mineral-y kind of taste and texture that hits the palate toward the end of the sip. The sip ends with this texture remaining on the palate … it’s a very interesting sensation.
The start of the sip is kind of creamy … but just in texture, not really in taste. It doesn’t taste milky or creamy or buttery, really, but there is a very soft, silky/creamy kind of mouthfeel that seems to soften the floral notes. This tea lacks any real sharpness, it is quite soft and mellow … and very enjoyable! Definitely one you want to relax with and enjoy the many infusions it offers.
You might have noticed that I didn’t provide a direct link to this tea, that’s because I didn’t see this one in the eBay store at the time that I wrote this review. But do yourself a favor and keep checking in … this tea is certainly worth the effort!
