drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
248 tasting notes

This is my first Milk Oolong! :O
I don’t generally like drinking milk, but there was so much hype here about milk oolong that I wanted to try it. Got this as a sample from the awesome, mj!
So while this doesn’t really taste like milk, I can’t figure out what it tastes like.
It’s so weird.
It’s pretty buttery, and that’s really all I can think of right now to describe it. xD It’s just different. I have mixed feelings about this tea…. It’s just…weird. I don’t even know. xD So I won’t give it a rating haha

Flavors: Butter

The few milk oolongs that I’ve tried haven’t been “milky” enough for me, they just taste like slightly creamier versions of green oolong, which I don’t like.

The milk oolongs that I’ve had don’t taste like regular milk to me either. To me, they taste like that milk that came in boxes that you can put in a lunch box and not have to refrigerate. I think the brand is Parmalat or something like that. My mom used to give them to me all the time as a kid

Lol, I always get popcorn notes with most milk oolong.s.. But with mandala’s I get Pina Colada goodness!!

I’m still on the fence about milk oolongs too. Some are flavored, some are not. So confusing. :)

Well…seems like there are others that have mixed feelings too. Glad I’m not alone. xD
Also TheTeaFairy- I got Mandala’s Milk Oolong from a swap that I have yet to try. After this one I wasn’t so sure, but now that I read your comment I’m a bit more interested! :p Will have to try soon!

After trying MANY milk oolong, mandala is my one and only now. It’s different from all the others, very unique.

Well good to know! (:

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

I don’t have an official rating system yet…but pretty much anything about 85 is amazing in my book, and I’m probably going to keep it on stock at all times if I can.
Anything below 70 is not my cuppa tea….at all. 0_0
But…that’s as far as my rating system really goes. One day I will have an official one! Just too lazy to make one now :P

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best Da Yu Ling Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Genmaicha
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
