Now THIS is a good milk oolong! TastyBrew sent this to me in the surprise package. Thanks, TastyBrew!! This was a perfect choice for me as I’ve been thinking about getting this tea for a long time, but wasn’t sure I wanted to get stuck with 2 oz. if I didn’t like it. (They don’t sell a smaller size).

This tea has all the milky, buttery flavor that I was expecting from a milk oolong, and a nice sweet finish! I do have a sweet tooth, ya know!

Getting this sample from TastyBrew was also perfect timing, as I was already planning on ordering a large amount of blueberry crumble with the latest promotion, so I added this one to the list! Yay!!

TastyBrew

Nice! I’m glad you like it. Doesn’t it just taste like melted butter? I did it gong fu style and it stayed buttery for about 6 or 7 steeps before turning a little more vegetal. Butter then buttered vegetables. Yum!

Tealizzy

Yum! I need to do it gong fu style! I always feel like I don’t have time for gong fu though…I guess it’s time to make time for tea!

TastyBrew

I thought that at first too, but it doesn’t take any time at all since you barely steep the leaves. I like doing it because of the instant gratification! And I can actually taste the different flavors that my unsophisticated palate can’t discern when I drink tea western style.

Tealizzy

That’s a good point! Ya, I have trouble discerning flavors too.

Blueberry Crumble is really that good? I just got this one in but won’t try it until I finish off a couple other teas. Glad you like it!

TastyBrew

Blueberry crumble is definitely that good! I just ordered a big bag as well!

Tealizzy

Yes, blueberry crumble is that good!! Would love to hear what you think!

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
