My samples arrived today from Fong Mong and of course I was excited and had to try one immediately. :)
I used about 3g of tea in a 10 oz. mug, steeped Western style, my tea liquor is dark orange.
This tea has a nice flavor profile, to me it seems malty with some cocoa and flowery notes and a quality that reminds me a bit of red wine. As the cup cools I am getting a lot of tannins which is definitely not something I look for in a tea because it makes my stomach feel queasy.
At the moment I am not quite sure what to make of it but I think I will try a shorter steep in the morning and perhaps that will improve things for me.
I am very grateful for the sample!
