I purchased this tea from TeaVivre, along with a huge amount of Dragon Pearls and blueberry fruit tea. You can’t go wrong with 350g of tea for 36 bucks with fast, free shipping to the other side of the world. I had to include this tea with my order, even though I’ve never tried a milk oolong before. The reviews were already looking promising, so I took the plunge. Now I wish I bought more than 50g!
This is soooooo delicious! The leaves look like polished jade rocks of beautiful oolong goodness. I steeped 3 tsp in a 250ml gaiwan for a minute, with no rinse. The result was a lovely flavour that reminded me of sweetened condensed milk mixed with a buttery taste found in good quality oolongs. I wish the milk notes lasted more than one steep though. The second cup had almost no milkiness left, but this is still a damn good oolong.
