I was really excited to try this tea, as I’ve been getting to like Oolongs a lot, and had yet to try a milk oolong.

Wow! It really tastes like… milk! Mind you, I haven’t drank a glass of milk in years, so I don’t exactly remember what it tastes like, but it was definitely very reminiscent. Unfortunately, I really don’t like milk, so in turn I really didn’t like this tea.

What I expected was more of an oolong with a light creamy taste over the floral tones, but I got no floral tones and kind of an overhaul of this weird milky flavour. Other users have noted it tasted/smelled like butter, which I can agree with too.

This is the first Oolong I’ve hated, but I guess I’ve learned to stay away from milk Oolongs and stick to more floral ones. I’m returning the 50g I bought of this and I’ll get something new.

I’m kind of disappointed because if I DID like it I was going to mix it with my vanilla oolong from DavidsTea, which I thought would have been pretty tasty. For those of you who do like milk oolongs maybe you could try this combo for me ;) haha

Haha, this is one of my favorite oolongs, and I wasn’t a fan of the vanilla one the first time I tried it. I may give that a try though!

The vanilla is okay. It tastes like vanilla more than anything else. I think it’s more worthwhile to mix with a better Oolong, just to mix up the flavours. @Amanda

Perhaps give Teavivre’s natural milk oolong a shot? It might be more of what you’re looking for. I personally really like the strong milky flavour, but Teavivre’s doesn’t have that.

Also – you should try to swap away this tea if you can, instead of returning it, because they just throw it out :( I’m positive there would be someone on here willing to trade you for it. I’m tempted to volunteer myself, since I’m out of it at the moment and adore it.

I think I’m just gonna stay away from milk Oolongs haha, but thanks for the suggestion @Kittena!
And unfortunately I already returned it. :( I needed the money to get some new straight oolong from Teavana.
