Tea of the Week – Formosa Pochong
Name: Formosa Pochong
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $29 for maestro sampler set (4 teas)
First Impressions: Sweeter smelling, grassy
A very light oolong tea, Formosa Pochong reminds me more of a white tea than a green. With absolutely no smokiness or bitterness, it was very smooth and pleasant. It hints at different flavors more than anything, making them a little hard to describe. One distinct characteristic I noticed is a very sweet aftertaste that lingers for quite a while. I think this is probably my favorite oolong so far, and maybe my favorite from the maestro collection.
