I was very excited to try this oolong, partly because I’m just over the moon about milk oolong teas lately :-) I know, I’m like the biggest tea dork ever. This isn’t called a milk oolong specifically but according to the description it should behave like one.
This tea dry looks like most milk oolongs I’ve seen. After infusing, it has some creamy notes and hints of savory vegetal notes but overall has a very strong buttery flavor. Which, I’m not complaining, it is delicious! For not being flavored, this is an incredible flavor actually. To me though, I was hoping for more creaminess and complexity. This is worth trying and I have enough from my sample to have a few more cups another time (thanks Azzrian).
When I’m in the mood for this type of tea, I think I still prefer the creaminess (and the price) of the Quangzhou Milk Oolong by The Whistling Kettle.
