Dry leaves smell more like milk candy than straight cream (compared to Tea Emporiums milk oolong I tried).
When leaves are steeped I find the milky smell gets lost, it smells more like straight oolong, the liquor still keeps the creamy smell.
Taste is rich, very creamy and bold with definitive oolong profile. It even has plenty of bitterness you’d get from high mountain oolong or tie guan yin steeped for longer time. In fact the tea tastes much like high mountain oolong. Interesting thing I find about this tea is the fact that it literally has milk aftertaste, sort of lactose feeling even.
Manager of Tea Dynasty assured me that it’s not flavor infused. I am no expert by any means but it seems true, since even in comparison with Tea Emporium tea tastes creamy, not so much milky and it has a strong oolong flavor. Also the milky notes are closer to green tea nuttiness than milk in flavor. Sort of milder version of dragon well nuttiness, that isn’t as nutty therefore comes off as creaminess instead.
I am much happier with this tea in comparison to Tea Emporium as I was lacking flavor in the latter a whole lot, it was too mild. This tea is creamy yet still bold.
