I received large packed envelope from TeaEqualsBliss
Thank you!
I was a little overwhelmed when I opened the package but excited because there is so many teas I have not even heard of! How Fun!
I spotted this tea right away and headed for the tea kettle.
I have wanted to try a Milky Oolong for awhile now.
The dry leaves do not have any distinct odor to them.
Add water and you get a delicate creamy oolong odor arising to your nose.
Mmmm…yummy.
I cannot think of the right word for the first taste that reaches my tongue but its bringing forth autumnal memories.
It reminds me of raking damp moist leaves, then a bit of astringency reaches the back of your tongue right before you swallow.
Very, lovely light afternoon tea.
Beautiful blond color.
Brewed in my Bodum.

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
