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.

A really excellent Oolong experience – courtesy of Fong Mong Tea!

I haven’t heard much from this company since they first showed up on Steepster offering samples. Are they still around?

LiberTEAS

They still have a shop on eBay… although I haven’t heard anything from them lately.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
