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!
