So I just did a blind test between this tea ($13/3.5oz) with the American Tea Room Milk Oolong ($39/2oz). I brewed both following the instructions that came with the American Tea Room tea (2 minutes @ 175 degrees). I had my fiancee put each tea into 2 cups and she kept track of which was which so there were 4 cups total. I chose my favorite two cups (they all tasted very similar) and it turned out I chose one of this republic of tea milk oolong, and one of the american tea room milk oolong. They are both delicious, but since this one is so much cheeper, and tastes basically the same to me, I am definitely sticking with this!
