This tea has a very light scent when dry. I can barely make out the notes of butter that I associate with a good Milk Oolong.

195/3 min. – Now that it is brewed, I still can barely smell or taste the characteristic nutty and buttery flavors of Milk Oolong. It is there, but it is very light, as is the oolong. There’s also a slight taste of cinnamon. This tea is what I would consider a delicate, or a light Milk Oolong. It’s not what I had hoped for in terms of strength, but it’s certainly not bad, either.

Hmm. I keep reading so many reviews of Milk Oolongs that sound like the reviewer was somewhat disappointed. I’ve crossed so many Milk Oolongs off my “must try” list due to such reviews. Frankly, I’ve gotten to the point where I think I should just stick with American Tea Room’s MO, because it’s so much better than any other I’ve tried. It’s expensive, but I know it delivers the goods.

I’m on a quest to try a bunch of them. ATR is one of my two favorites because of the roasted, nutty and buttery flavor. Thepuritea is the other for the surprising fruity notes with the nutty and buttery flavor. (They’re sold out at least until May, according to their customer service.) I’ve tried several others, but the only other one that comes close is Théodor, but it’s super expensive, and I still prefer the others. I keep trying, though! It is very off-putting to try these teas, though, and find them lacking. Sometimes it’s better to live vicariously through others’ tea treks. ;)
