Tea of the Week – Formosa Pochong

Name: Formosa Pochong

Type:  Oolong

Region:  Taiwan

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.

My Rating:
4  / 5
