drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1612 tasting notes

The dry tea smells green and spinach-y with hints of something sweet and flowery. The taste – oh the flavour! This is what a milk oolong is supposed to taste like! It’s almost like drinking smooth, sweet cream rather than tea. I can also taste some very faint floral notes – the tea description says orchid, but the flavour suggests something more like honeysuckle to me.

This tea comes dangerously close to being as good as the milk oolong I had from The O Dor – which officially ranks as The Best Tea Ever in my books. That tea had a thickness and butteriness that this tea doesn’t seem to have, but other than that I think this one matches up.

It wouldn’t surprise me if they added milk flavor.

You had to burst my bubble, didn’t you? ;P

For health reasons they would have to disclose any additives. Be interesting to ask them.

The ingredient list online (which seems to always note flavour additives when there are some – It would be foolish for them to list some and not others) lists nothing other than Chinese oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains.

Doesn’t mean the Milk flavor wasn’t added in China before it got to Davids.

But if it was added before they got it, is it something they would have to disclose anymore, especially since they wouldn’t necessarily be aware? These sitations of responsibility interest me.. :)

With most milk teas the milk flavor is added by the Tea Master during the processing. The milk flavor does not occur naturally in the leaves themselves. In the situation here it was most likely added where the tea was proccessed…China.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
