My Milky Oolong, how I’ve missed you. It’s been absolute agony to be wrenched apart from you for so long… but now you’ve returned to me, 100g of you, twice as good as the original 50g that hardly tided me over half a year.

Suffice to say I’ve decided this is now a tea to remain a staple in my collection! Lately it’s been tempting to switch my morning sencha with this (just because it tastes so fab that it starts off my day perfectly); the other day I took a 0.5l flask of this to the library with me while I studied. I am utterly in love with this tea.

Today’s tasting is of a half-mug, leaves directly in the mug as they unfold so large I can just scoop them out with a spoon. Just the scent of the leaves is amazing and… I can’t even think of an english word for this, so “gourmand” will have to work instead! And the aroma of the brew, so rich and milky without being dairy- that’s what I love about this tea.

This time round it’s been left to brew a little longer than usual so the butteriness is washing off and turning it into a greener oolong; fresh and ever so slightly astringent with a sweet end to every sip. Needless to say I love this tea in all its forms… Maybe once I run out of this I’ll try a different company’s milky oolong. For now, I have enough of this to last me a while :D
