Okay, so I had this brilliant idea. Why not combine milk oolong with honey scented oolong to create milk and honey oolong (aka Paradise Oolong)? I’ll be using this listing to document my experiments.

First attempt at creating Paradise Oolong. I used David’s Tea’s Quangzhou Milk Oolong and Upton Tea Import’s Empress Guei Fei Oolong. It was a great idea that was badly executed.

You see, I had written earlier about how Empress Guei Fei was a bit of a disappointment since the flavors were unrefined and harsh. I figured that the smoothness of David’s Milk oolong would neutralize that, and the two would combine into something like honeyed fruit drenched in cream. Sounds decadent, doesn’t it? I thought so.

Well, things didn’t quite go as planned. I think the milk oolong is either stronger than I thought or I put in too much of it, because I mostly tasted milk oolong. The second steep had more honeyed notes and the dark oolong flavor rounding out each sip. Mostly, the flavors clashed and distracted. I couldn’t really tell what I was tasting, honestly. My taste buds are confused.

The worst part is, I got so excited about my idea that I went ahead and drank oolong at 9PM. I am so hyped on caffeine right now. I think the Guei Fei isn’t too caffeinated, but David’s Milk Oolong always had a kick to it. I’ll probably be up till dawn at this point and it wasn’t even all that tasty. :(

For next time: Get smoother oolongs to play with.

It was a really great idea! I was excited to see how it turned out… Too bad it wasn’t as amazing as it was expected to be… and happened at 9pm… Maybe an earlier time would have inspired more tweaking of the blend?

Still, congrats on great ideas! : )
