This tea served as a reminder to pay attention to what I am doing. Even if you are paying attention, if you don’t like the results try something different. I used boiling water and a 3 minute steep with this yesterday. It was gross. There were some floral notes and some roasted but then there was this whole other thing going on that was sour and a bit like gym socks meets pool chemicals.

Today I decided to use just steaming water and a two minute steep. The sip is a bit mineral tasting and milky up front which gives way roasted notes late in the sip. The aftertaste is floral leaving a cooling sensation on the breath. The overall taste is a bit thin but otherwise nice. As this cools the smoky roasted taste comes out more and fattens up the flavor. Now it is good.

The second cup with steaming water and three minute steep is the best cup yet. It is like toasted rice along with a floral taste that reminds me of the rind of watermelon. This tea, while not my favorite of the samples, was pretty good once I adjusted how I prepared it.

This was the last sample to open that I received from Fong Mong Tea. Thank you for sending these samples my way. I am now a bit more educated in Taiwan teas – and I like them

Gym socks and pool chemicals?! Those are two items that I’d never think of to put in the same sentence. lol

At least you had a second chance to give the tea a fair shake. :)

You should try putting them in your mouth at the same time :) I was almost afraid to try again. Glad I did.
