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!

Yellowish green liquor. Round, creamy nose with a hint of grape. Tastes light and sweet with a subtle hint of just ripe honeydew melon.

I think I must have made a mistake in preparing this tea because it was awful, not at all per description. I prepared it as per the instructions (jing tea produce brewing instructions specific to each tea they sell) – 1tbsp per cup, 3min, nearly boiling water. The dry leaves had a wonderful rich, dark earthy aroma and the infused leaves smelled almost like a green tea but creamier. The infusion however was massively, massively overpowered by tannin. I couldn’t bring myself to finish the small pot I made and it was so bad that I wasn’t tempted to try adjusting times and temperatures with a second infusion. I think that I must have put in quite a lot more than what jing tea considers a tablespoon. In future I think I will use a proper measuring spoon to avoid this kind of mistake.

Fantastic oolong, with a creamy rich taste. I re-infused 3 times and although the third infusion was a bit weak, it held its own.
