Steeped 6 grams of leaf (full sample packet) in 2 cups (500ml) of water at 195 degree for 6 minutes.

I want to note that to me, the minty sensation others are getting does not come across to me as “minty” but more as a cooling sensation. When you take a sip, wait a few moments, then open your mouth and suck in some air, there is this breezy cooling feeling that ices over the inside of the mouth a little bit. Is that the minty sensation others are getting? I do not taste mint but FEEL it.

I absolutely taste the charcoal roasty flavor, very nice. Sort of tastes like a camp fire that has been allowed to slowly smolder out over the course of an evening when you wake up the next day and all that is left is a little smoke slowly lifting from the ashes.

The aroma of the dry leaf to me smelled of milk – slightly warm milk.

There is a creamy texture and mouthfeel to the steeped tea, and a milk flavor as well.

Only a slight vegetal flavor is present.

A light sweetness is present.

After taste lingers in the mouth nicely leaving a rock mineral flavor behind.

There is a juicy erupting throat feel to this tea – we often speak of mouthfeel but this tea has a throat feel as well. As if you just bit into a ripe juicy peach or apple and it has shot down your throat a little surprising you.

Mild sensation of drying in the mouth once the after taste dissipates which I find typical of most oolong tea.

Over all this is one of the finer oolongs I have sampled. It is unique yet true to what I think an oolong should be. Oolongs are my favorite guilty pleasures which I tend to save for moments I can take some ME time.

A very nice tea – thank you Fong Mong Tea for the sample!

Totally agree with you on the cooling sensation, as I did not get the mint taste either.

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
