This came courtesy of Pekko Teas. Thanks!

I had a bad first experience with milk oolongs, and even after having tried Teavivre’s excellent ones, I’m still a bit wary of them. Still, I had to give this one a go!

The leaves are tightly rolled and fairly large. They smell REALLY creamy, sort of like rice pudding. I get a hint of the described orchid.

The creaminess comes out, but it’s not overwhelming. I definitely tasted the oolong itself, and that does a lot to ground the milk flavor. The floral-ness of this is great.

Thanks, Pekko!

I think this is the one I received but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. Looking forward to this after your review :)

It’s great! I’m on my third mug and it’s still going strong!

I haven’t been too impressed with the milk oolongs I’ve had. Interested to see how this compares.

Michelle

Yeah, they’re usually not what I reach for, and like I said the first one I had kind of frightened me. Still, I’m always willing to try them. I liked Teavivre’s, and while this isn’t quite as good as those, it’s not awful.

Oh!
I just wrote my review and now I am reading the other reviews on this tea, and I am surprised to see you got the rice pudding note too!
Glad I am not crazy;)
