The smell of the dry leaves is worth the price of admission – the apricots and buttered popcorn scent is strong. The tea is bolder than other oolongs. I’ll have to try a shorter steeping time.
As the name suggests, this unusual and delicious tea gives off a creamy texture and nose while still keeping true to floral highlights. The creaminess comes from a very cool evening followed by a warm sunny morning. This differentiation in temperature changes the leaf chemical composition to give a wonderful texture and nose to this lovely oolong. As with all quality oolongs, our Milk Oolong only gets better with each steeping so be sure to re-infuse these leaves up to 6 or 7 times.
