Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Fong Mong Tea
Growing from organic natural ecological management tea plantation, with intentional nonintervention, being eaten by destructive insects, coordinating traditional Taiwanese heavy-fermented skill of tea-making, the natural tea leaves increase their individual flavor. The liquor it produces with bright and amber hue, containing a light honey sweet, is the super enjoyment best close to the Nature.

Fong Mong Tea has an ebay shop that should not be overlooked. They have such a variety of wonderful Taiwanese teas. Note that if the link to this specific tea does not work that could be that they don’t have it listed at a particular time however at the time of writing this review they have this in stock.
The first taste of this tea reminds of me rock mineral with a slightly drying effect in the throat.
It is a darker roast which I prefer and has a really good toasty flavor and aroma.
I really appreciate organic teas and prefer to drink them when I can. No residual pesticide flavor is detectable in this tea.
There is a honey sweetness to this tea but somewhat of a muted sweetness, such as a floral honey. It is not as sweet as some but sweeter than other oolong I have tried.
One flavor note I am picking up that I am quite enjoying is a salty note. I do love salt and the salt with the rock mineral flavor is making me think of caves, another thing I like, or ancient civilizations. Don’t ask me how to come to that conclusion or thought but there it is. Some strange conjuring of my mind through tea. Hey at least its just tea my strange mental images are coming from!
All in all a nice experience with this tea, one I hope to have again but alas this sample is now gone. I will have to try to pick some up while it is available!
