This Chinese Oolong tea features tightly packed leaves and a pale yellow, buttery smooth infusion that is one of the tastiest we’ve had in years. The intoxicating aroma and flavor has a pleasing waft of freshly baked goods, light notes of lotus, and undertones of sweet milk. The unique flavor of this oolong tea is due to a sudden temperature drop in the foggy and wet mountain regions of China where it grows. One of the many legends of Milk Oolong Tea attributes this special tea to a fable about the moon falling in love with a passing comet in the night sky. The comet fizzled out and was gone, and in her sorrow the moon blew a cold wind over the land. The next day the farmers were amazed to discover a new flavor from their tea plants with an incredible milky sweetness, attributed to the motherly character of the moon.
