Just picked up 50g of this for free! Awesome.
Delicious cup, but not quite as I remember it. Perhaps I’m not really in the mood. Also, different water and water-heating technique are maybe making it a bit different. Oh well!

This ultra-rare oolong from the Wuyi Mountains of China is velvety smooth and lightly creamy, with a subtle hint of orchid. It’s said that it came about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears, which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess. It’s been a rare luxury ever since.
Ingredients: Chinese oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains.

So the price of this stuff dropped by a third! Now I feel less of a need to hoard it.
I’m drinking this instead of eating lunch. My stomach feels meh today and I don’t know what to eat because my brain says tacos. So milk oolong it is.
I had milk oolong in mind when I got my yixing so now he’s really getting some use.
First I did a rinse because these leaves are so hard to get to open up with quick steeps.
First steep: Around 15 seconds. Yay I missed this tea! Orchids! Cream! Butter! I love the pinch when it hits my tongue, I can’t decide if it feels like pepper or like bubbles.
I wonder if Paula Deen could be convinced to drink this tea. BUTTER.
Second steep: 30 seconds. More color to this one, obviously. I love the smell. It makes me want to infuse butter with orchid petals. That might be the only way I could ever get a good use out of an orchid since they hate me.
Third steep: 45 seconds. I’m pretty sure this is wrong, that a yixing can’t possibly have an effect on its fourth use, but this tastes SO much more floral than usual and I am loving it. I am also amazed that the creaminess is still there and quite strong. This is probably the best cup so far.
Fourth steep: 1 minute. A bit lighter on flavor now, but still very floral. There is still a definite butter flavor, although it’s less creamy now.
Fifth steep: 1 min, 15 seconds. Not much different from the fourth. Starting to lose flavor a lot more. Notes are definitely still very much on the orchid side of things. With five steeps and a whole lot of other tea sitting around, I do believe it’s time to move on to something else.
So I was watching LOTR tonight..and wanted a rich, creamy tea to go with it, with a nice golden sun color..yeah, this tea fit the bill to go with the movie lol. It was enjoyable and so smooth as usual, I have enough left for about 2 cups :( ah well, I’ll enjoy it while I can! Oooh and the bf was feeling really gross tonight with regards to his stomach, I chopped up a bunch of fresh ginger and added honey and boiling water straight to it as I usually do, and also decided to add .5 tsp of lemon juice to fight if he’s getting sick. And just leave the ginger in the cup until the cup is finished. He really liked it, and requested another cup, and his tummy is feeling a bit better, as long as he doesn’t move :) sadly, I didn’t try any of my concoction, as if he’s getting sick, I don’t want to get it (it will be inevitable, anyways). But yeah, that might have to be my new cold remedy! But back to this yummy oolong haha, see previous notes :)
I made this for myself tonight and offered a sip to my mom. Upon smelling the tea and taking a sip, she widened her eyes and a smile spread across her face.
“Mmmmm what is that one?”
“Milk oolong, isn’t it delicious?”
“I want some of that one!”
….brews up another cuppa.
Tea has such a powerful pull over people (when it’s good tea :I )
She’s converted for sure <3
Now that I tried Teavivre’s version of this, it leaves me wondering if they add flavors to this David’s one. It tastes much more buttery and nutty than the Teavivre version. It’s really lovely, but I’m having a hard time believing that this that taste can occur naturally despite what the sales associate tells me.
It’s very yummy though.
There is nothing better for the cold weather than staying home with a hot cup of tea, looking out the window, watching the snow falling down. I’m guessing that’s more than 20 cm so far.
I’m staying in and drinking milk oolong. It’s doing its job. Keeps me warm and happy. It’s fragrant and creamy with a hint of floral notes. It’s delicious.
