I think inexperience is hitting me again. This is not quite what I was expecting. My limited experience with Oolong has been with flavored ones. I was expecting this to be more “woody” and less “grassy”. The leaves are beautiful when unfurled, and the tea is light and delicate, but like I said maybe a bit too grassy for my tastes. I think I would prefer an oolong that is more toasted? not sure of the right word, but this one is too green for me. I don’t think it’s bad, just not what I was expecting.
Quangzhou Milk Oolong
This limited-edition 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.
