This sample courtesy of Fong Mong Tea – thank you!
Steeped 3 grams of leaves for 6 minutes at about 187º. This produced a lovely honey-gold colored liquid. I can smell the roasted veggies, and the taste reminds me of roasted asparagus. Delicious! There’s a slight coolness that fills my mouth after the roastiness subsides – fun!
Resteeped at 190º for another 6 minutes the roastiness is still here, but a tad less so now.
The third infusion is probably where I’ll draw the line. The taste is still there, but falling to the point where I won’t peruse it more.
Thanks again to Fong Mong Tea for sharing a sample of this tasty tea!
