Milk oolong has been on my wish list for a long time now, but it’s so ridiculously expensive (especially because the most-reviewed e-tailer of it, David’s Tea, is in Canada) that I haven’t been able to try it. When I found it out that Margaret’s Fine Imports, a tea store in my hometown of Pittsburgh, carried it, I sent my dad to buy and send me some as a Christmas present.

It’s almost exactly like I imagined it – it has an extremely smooth mouthfeel that reminds me of good Silver Needle teas that I’ve tried, except instead of that delicious buttery taste, it has a delicious taste of sweet cream and milk. It reminds me of a less-sweet version of the cream that’s in the middle of one of my favorite candies as a kid, Cow Tails.

The one unexpected note is that it still does taste “green,” as it is a green oolong. This is a good thing, I think. Otherwise it would definitely be a bit overpoweringly creamy.

Since this is so expensive, I probably won’t be buying beyond my 2 oz. bag (which is already nearly half-gone with this pot!), but I’m so glad I got to try this!

I am very much loving milk oolong. I’ve only tried one so far, but they are ridiculously nommy. Glad you got your hands on one!
