I think this must have come to me from QuiltGuppy. Not that I can remember for certain, but it was in one of those little pouches that I asked her to get a package of for me.
I’ve had one milk oolong before, from Nothing But Tea, and I was a bit torn about it. I liked the flavour but I thought it smelled like heated dairy. This one has a bit of that as well, but not the cloyingly sweet hot yoghurt that I remember from the other one. There’s more tea coming through here. Sweet and green. This pleases me.
The flavour is… thick. So so thick and almost creamy. It tastes exactly like it smells. A bit like warm dairy but also very clearly of a green oolong. It’s slightly nutty at the beginning of the sip and then the milky bits just take over, almost to the point of covering all other flavours. And the weird thing about that is that it’s more a feeling, not really a taste of anything. It’s like trying to taste something through a soft duvet. At the end of the sip I get an apple-y aftertaste, but it’s not super strong and doesn’t seem to want to show up on all sips. Just here and there.
It’s very nice. I think I prefer it non-milked, though.
