There is that aftertaste of “plum” but it didn’t really interest me that much. Too bitter for ma taste and nothing that interesting for me really.

I can’t really say much about this tea. It’s decent, deffinitely an upgrade from the common variety, but other than that it’s nothing unusual. Too bitter for my taste with no interesting undertastes or aftertastes.

Malty, earthy, deeply fermented aroma.
Raisins, nuts, chocolate in taste, but all in all the tea is rather watery, not rich enough.
May be good with milk, but on its own it’s quite disappointing.

It’s a really decent tea. A little flat, but I like the taste far better than of a complex but uninteresting tea.

Ha, I thought I had tried this one before! But since I’ve been craaavvviiing milk oolong for a while, and this was from my swap with Lynne-tea… I totally felt justified in drinking some. Still have enough left for another cup, too!

Anyhow, this is a yummy milk oolong, as I said previously. It has likely lost some flavour, but I’m still quite enjoying it. A big bonus here is a complete lack of that “flavoured” taste that comes through with some milky oolongs. Not to say that this one isn’t flavoured, but it doesn’t have that accompanying chemical taste, which is perfect.

Couldn’t find a listing for this one, Lynne-tea, so I made one! Let me know if this is in the wrong place.

So I stumbled across a milk oolong in my pile from Lynne-tea, and as I haven’t had one in a while, it sounded very appetizing to brew some up… soooo I did!

The cup smells incredibly caramelly (like Milk-fuls?) and delicious, and the flavour is similar, leaving the mouth with an intense caramelized milk flavour after swallowing. Heavenly. I have no idea if this one is “flavoured” or not, but it’s lovely. Milk oolongs are so wonderful :D

Thanks so much, Lynne-tea!

You’re welcome! I didn’t make a listing for it as I did not get a response from the company to try and get more shipped. I therefore decided I would just enjoy the tea as is without documenting it (in all honesty, it would make it easier for me to forget about it once it’s gone as there is no definitive supply line… I have no idea how much shipping would be as the site [even translated from Polish to English] is hard to get a grasp of international shipping…which could end up being extremely expensive…phooey!)
This was definitely not a flavoured milk oolong :D… here is a link to the tea http://www.fiveoclock.eu/pl/produkt/1076,CHINA-OOLONG-MILKY.html
