drank Milk Oolong by Tea Dynasty
69 tasting notes

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.

Bio

I was always a huge fan of teas but my tastes changed constantly. Lately I am on the path of discovering Chinese teas, but not limiting myself to that. I am, however, favoring straight teas at this point.

I love pu-erh, oolongs are always a treat, learning about greens is delicious, absolutely neutral towards rooibos or herbals and black is always a yes. Incidentally any combination of the above is ok in a blended tea, which I like to have time to time.

« The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh—oh the seventh cup—
if I drink you, a wind will hurry my wings
toward the sacred island. »
