I believe it was Mercuryhime who sent this one to me a while back! Thanks very much!!!

Dry – this smells like slightly buttered and salted spinach and artichokes with peach notes. VERY interesting aroma!

While it’s infusing it smells more like a greener oolong with milky oolong tendencies.

I’m not sure how many Arishan Mountain Range Teas I have tried but I think I can count them on one hand.

This is incredibly creamy but not an intense milky creamy like other milky oolong – I agree with Mercuryhime there! It’s more of a green flavor, much like a green tea or a greenest of the oolongs anyways.

There are vegetal flavors that pop in and out which I am enjoying very much!

This one sure makes ya think! And I think I like it!

Rinsed. First steep is light floral and barely milky. Very smooth. This is a lightly oxidized oolong, which is fine by me. Greener oolongs are my favorites.
Second and third steep is slightly more milky, but it is still quite mild. The peachy flavor is coming through more. It is very floral with a slight vegetal finish. Slightly spicy.
Fourth steep is still going strong. The vegetal flavors are winning out now with peach in the background. There’s a bit of plum coming through as well. Milkiness is diminishing but there’s a stronger buttery flavor at the end of the sip.
This can probably go another steep or two.

I love how the floral flavors just linger in your mouth. Tea is probably the best breath freshener.

It is not really all that milky for a milk oolong. I think their regular Alishan Oolong is more milky than this. The peach flavor is quite a nice complement. It is very smooth and and satisfying. I think I’d have liked it more if it wasn’t called a milk oolong. I have another 50 grams of this and I just keep thinking how much my mom would like it. I’ll be bringing her some on my next visit. :)
