What a lovely Oolong. It immediately reminded me of my oldest daughter, Amethyst, who presented me with a gift of a blooming orchid plant for Mother’s Day this year. The reason: this tea has an amazing orchid-like essence! I do love how tea takes me on a journey of joyful memories.
I steeped this in my gaiwan as I usually do with Oolong teas. The first two infusions produced a light-tasting cup. Light and floral. The softness of the flavor of the cup offered orchid notes that were a juxtaposition of both strong and yet delicate. It was a very luxurious kind of experience, like being pampered in a spa.
Subsequent infusions produced stronger flavors – the delicate introductions have made way for an intense floral overtone that is both sweet and a little sharp, and quite an exotic experience for the palate. There are hints of vegetation in the background, along with a sweet, buttery tone that develops as I continue to sip.
This is the first of many teas that I will be trying from this company – and I’m happily impressed with what I’ve experienced from Fong Mong Tea thus far!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
