Another lovely Oolong from Fong Mong Tea … I’m sorry it took me so long to get around to trying it … I didn’t forget about you, I promise!
The first few sips, I noticed a slight charcoal-y kind of taste, but after those initial sips, this charred wood taste seemed to make way for a mineral-y kind of taste and texture that would start just after mid-sip, and last through the end of the sip … the sip would end with this sort of mineral-y mouthfeel that was a very interesting sensation. Interesting, but enjoyable!
There are hints of floral tones as well as a nutty flavor to this tea, but everything is softened by the creaminess of this tea. It’s not really ‘creamy’ or ‘milky’ or even ‘buttery’ to the taste, but at the beginning of the sip, it feels very soft and silky and even creamy, and this texture seems to soften those flavors.
