I’m so excited to try this!! My order came in just a few days!! I love buttery, creamy flavors. I think they are wonderful in tea. And I’m happy to say that this milk oolong does not disappoint! :)

Tastes smooth, buttery and…“green” in a tropical jungle sort of way—like pandan leaves. There’s a refreshing hint of orchid and freshly cut grass in the aftertaste.

The scent partly reminds me of sticky rice with condensed milk and coconut—but it’s not “heavy” or “thick” like the buttered popcorn scent of other milk oolongs. Also, this seems to be more “floral” than the others—like the condensed milk is mixed in with gardenias and other creamy white flowers. (but maybe they all really do have the same supplier—who knows?? ;) Everything is subjective.)

The overall effect is very nice—I like it. :)

If I had to describe this tea one word: luscious.

My ratings are purely subjective and each note varies according to my perception and mood at the moment. So, with that said, my rating scale can be deciphered as follows:
90-100: I am in love! A must have at all times! :D
80-89: This is good. It is full-tin worthy! :))
79-70: This is okay. Glad I tried it. Might get more. :)
69-60: Meh. I’m indifferent. Neither here nor there, this is Tea Purgatory. :/
59-under: Mediocre and Sad. Really not good enough to try again. A disappointment. :(

My Misc. Personal Favorites List (because I love making lists!):
Books = The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, Personal Darkness by Tanith Lee.
Movies = E.T., The Princess Bride, Babette’s Feast, Enchanted April, The Age of Innocence, Death Becomes Her, GATTACA, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Others, Pride and Prejudice (2005 version), Nacho Libre :).
TV Shows = The Twilight Zone (a classic!), Star Trek TNG, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I miss this!), Mad Men, Sherlock, Being Human.
Music? = I find myself perennially stuck in an 80’s-90’s New Wave & Alternative time warp. ;)
