This was sent to me for review by Teavivre.

When I opened my package today, I saw 5 large bags about 9×7 inches large. I was trying to decide which one to try first and I opted for an oolong. I am a huge fan of milk oolongs. I opened it up and there were 4 small about 2×4″ bags of tea. I’m definitely going to be reusing these resealable bags.

Anyhow, this milk oolong tea came in a beautiful red sample bag. I opened it up and inhaled the sweet, creamy/milky scent. I love the small, dark green rolled up leaves. I poured it in my gaiwan, and it was the perfect amount. I’d say it was about a tablespoonful and then some.

The first steep brewed up a golden yellow-orange. The scent was fantastic, which was similar to the scent of the dry leaves. Once it hit my lips, I knew this was amazing. I would say this is comparable to the milk oolong by DAVIDsTea. In my mouth, the creaminess was tame compared to the scent. This tea was smooth and wasn’t bitter or astringent. There was a sweet, fruity taste with light floral tones. It wasn’t heady at all. I love this tea.

I got about 6 steeps until it began to become very mild in flavor. I had my husband try it too, and he loved it. The floral tones became more prominent as the steeps progressed.
