A while ago jing posted a food combination on there facebook page, so i had to try it out!
Its an easy combination because its just a mango that u can eat with the ali shan, they said that it compliments the taste off the tea in order to get a refreshing afternoon…
Well i bought a mango the other day (something i do on a regular base). so after getting my tea ready (one teaspoon with boiling water for 3min) i cut the mango into pieces!
Once everything is cooled down a bit i couldn’t wait to get this little experiment working. The tea tastes as creamy like it used to (i like this oolong) so no surprises there… a sip off tea and after that a pieces off mango. I can see how they match a little bit in texture and taste. I’m noticing that the mango taste in my mounth brings out a little more cream tastes from the tea. Perhaps that the fruit notes in my tea get a bit lost because off my mango but… its a good combo.
Not a everyday combo, but every once in a while i will try this, especially on a hot summer afternoon or evening!
