Nom, hot oolong tea. How I’ve missed you. The weather hasn’t cooled down so much. Only a little from the recent rainy days, but still, it’s cool enough that a cup of hot tea doesn’t feel like torture. Plus the fan blowing in my direction doesn’t hurt things.

This cup of tea has the lovely green oolong aroma that I adore. Floral and vegetal and sweet and yummy. The color of the brewed tea is very lightly green, which I’m beginning to see is a trait of Fong Mong’s green oolongs. The taste is delectable. You are hit with a round sweet floral flavor. Then you notice the green vegetal spring-like flavor as the tea moves to the middle of the tongue. On the swallow, you feel the fruitiness and the barely drying and luscious quality of the texture. Don’t know why, but green oolongs often remind me of papaya. Papaya are sweet and floral and slightly vegetal in flavor so I guess the general flavor profile matches that of a green oolong.

Thank of for the generous sample, Fong Mong Tea. This is really delicious. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
