Much thanks to Teavivre for the sample! It was very generous to offer samples to someone so inexperienced in the tea game (not to mention how generous the samples themselves are).
This was my first milk oolong tea, or oolong tea at all, honestly, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it wasn’t terrifying to try; I’m brave. So I brewed it up in a pot, using a couple spoonfuls of the dry tea and taking the water all the way to boiling. I wasn’t completely sure how to go about brewing a full pot since it only had directions for one cup, but I think that it turned out great.
I loved the scent of the tea, which turned out mostly floral. The flavor was just as good. Sweet, hitting the same floral notes as the scent, and slightly creamy, which I figure is the milk flavoring. It was lovely.
The second brewing was similar. Slightly less of the creamy taste, but still nice. I haven’t gone for a third time, but I’m sure that it will be good.
I would definitely recommend this tea and it was a great introduction to loose leaf teas.
Now I’m excited to try the rest of the Teavivre samples.
