Figured since I was already drinking an oolong, I should have some of this with it. Especially since this is very nearly ready for a sip down which will help out my ever growing cupboard just a wee bit. I haven’t yet added the teavivre teas that came in the mail yet as I don’t want to to pen them until I’m ready to send off the split tea to boxermama and Terri. No sense open the tea before we have to. So I have a number of teas in my house that aren’t in my cupboard, but I don’t consider it cheating since they’re in storage haha sadly that will change In a few week I suspect, when cavocorax arrives in Ontario to claim all her teas from me :) maybe I can get sort of close to 200 before that happens since I know she’s bringing tea with her from the gang out west!

This one is nothing I need to keep in my cupboard because I just don’t drink a lot of oolongs. Nthing wrong with this tea but I think I’d likely stock the milk oolong from mandala first if I were picking any to have in my cupboard all the time :)

Terri HarpLady

I’ve already included all of those teas on my inventory, lol

Cavocorax

If it helps any, you have 5 samples coming from OMGsrsly, and up to nine from me. I won’t make yours too big though cuz if you love any of them we can always get more. (Or I can send you more of mine)

Sil

Send? Haha no sending. You’re stuck with meet ups now…..unless you’re totally a weirdo * grin*

And that’s the last of this, as part of Operation: Oldest-Teas First. (118)

Wait, that’s a really crappy codename. Maybe Operation: Stale No More? Operation: Rotation Escalation? Operation: Drink More Tea To Boost My Creativity?

Gonna steep on it. (:P)

Sil

lol goofy!

MissLena

Rotation escalation!

Anna

Rotation Escalation is PERFECTION.

Cavocorax

Hahah – allllll riiight. Rotation escalation it is! :P

Anna

AKA RotEsc. If it gets really insane, (G)RotEsc.

Cavocorax

I like the abbreviation, but what’s the G?

Ozli

Grotesque? G’rot’esc?? :P

Cavocorax

Oh. Ohhhhh! (DUH). :D

Now THIS is a good milk oolong! TastyBrew sent this to me in the surprise package. Thanks, TastyBrew!! This was a perfect choice for me as I’ve been thinking about getting this tea for a long time, but wasn’t sure I wanted to get stuck with 2 oz. if I didn’t like it. (They don’t sell a smaller size).

This tea has all the milky, buttery flavor that I was expecting from a milk oolong, and a nice sweet finish! I do have a sweet tooth, ya know!

Getting this sample from TastyBrew was also perfect timing, as I was already planning on ordering a large amount of blueberry crumble with the latest promotion, so I added this one to the list! Yay!!

TastyBrew

Nice! I’m glad you like it. Doesn’t it just taste like melted butter? I did it gong fu style and it stayed buttery for about 6 or 7 steeps before turning a little more vegetal. Butter then buttered vegetables. Yum!

Tealizzy

Yum! I need to do it gong fu style! I always feel like I don’t have time for gong fu though…I guess it’s time to make time for tea!

TastyBrew

I thought that at first too, but it doesn’t take any time at all since you barely steep the leaves. I like doing it because of the instant gratification! And I can actually taste the different flavors that my unsophisticated palate can’t discern when I drink tea western style.

Tealizzy

That’s a good point! Ya, I have trouble discerning flavors too.

Fjellrev

Blueberry Crumble is really that good? I just got this one in but won’t try it until I finish off a couple other teas. Glad you like it!

TastyBrew

Blueberry crumble is definitely that good! I just ordered a big bag as well!

Tealizzy

Yes, blueberry crumble is that good!! Would love to hear what you think!

whatshesaid

It sure is!

this.

i made a beer and tea cocktail.
for my 454th logged beer and tea. today is the day my logging numbers coincided.
it’s actually not a bad beer-tea-ni!
i’ve mixed iced tea with wine before, and champagne for a brunch type thing.
the good balance for this drink i found was something like 2:1 tea to beer.

Beer and tea? I would be in heaven!! Sounds awesome :D

Fjellrev

Yes! A local brewing company does this.

JustJames

Josie Jade

Perfect combination!

Shmiracles

i’m gonna totally drink more BeerTeanis in the future! this is guaranteed.

Anna

I am intrigued.

This milk oolong tastes a tad more “flavoured” than some I’ve had… but it’s still pretty tasty, and I’m not unhappy to have a bag of it! First infusion is heavy on the sweet milkiness, but I’m hoping that there’s more oolong in infusions 2 and 3.

ETA: Two good additional infusions from this one, and the flavour morphed as expected – more creaminess lingered than I was expecting too, which was awesome!

The name on this is spot on – It’s so creamy and smooth! Even though it doesn’t necessarily say it’s a milk oolong, it’s very much like it. There’s a little vegetalness (probably not a word, but I’m using it anyway) in the end of the sip. Creamy in the front, vegetal in the back.

This is really lovely. I have a soft spot for good milky oolongs and this is one of the few that I’ll repurchase soon.

this one sounds really nice and so if this is la crème de la crème…it means it should be the best !

This is like drinking melted butter. And I do love butter. Yum.

Shmiracles

aww dang. i ordered this in a sample pack and they sent me orange brulee instead by accident. they’ll send me this one with my next order, but damn it sounds delish!!!

TastyBrew

It is really good. I’m just getting into milk oolongs and this one is raising the bar big time. A little salty too. I want to guzzle it but need to try and savor it. You’re gonna love it! I hope the orange brûlée was good at least!

Alysha

Guilt-free butter? I must try this!

Tealizzy

Darn it! I almost included this in my last order, but they only had the option to buy 2oz., and I wasn’t sure I’d like it. Poo! It sounds yummy!

Thanks jessiwrites for this sample :)

This one is quite lovely. A very creamy, buttery oolong.

Now I’m enjoying the second steep of this treasure while contemplating whether I should study of watch Skyfall. Hmm. Daniel Craig does make a compelling case.

Third steep, still delicious.

I absolutely love this stuff. Prepared gongfu style and steeped 10 times. All largely the same tasted and likely could have steeped a few more times. As others said, tea is creamy on the front and slightly vegetal in the back. Tastes sort of fruity throughout. I’m not so versed on oolongs but I absolutely loved this tea.
