I am now in Melbourne! The first thing I did here was, of course, checking out the T2 shop nearby! I bought a box of Melbourne Breakfast and wanted to purchase a pack of Milky Oolong as well. I could not make up my mind because I was dying to try milk oolong but T2’s milky oolong is pretty expensive. In the end, I asked the cute guy at the counter if I could try the tea. I thought he would give me a small sample to taste right away but instead he gave me a generously-sized sample to take home! I was pleasantly surprised indeed!
Ok long story short… so how was my first encounter with milk oolong? I don’t know how much this tea tastes like the “typical” milk oolong, but anyway I enjoyed it. :) It’s amazing that a tea can be light yet milky at the same time! It’s not really very milky (the ignorant me was actually expecting a “cloudy” tea but it was nothing like that), yet the creaminess and softness unique to this tea was unmissable. I love the slightly sweet, milk-tea like aftertaste! The weather is crummy today but this tea has brightened the day :)
I think I am going to buy it this Sunday!
