When Teaopia was having their closing out sale during the Teavanna transfer, they had this on for 75%+ off, so I bought 1000g. Yes, you read that right, I bought an entire kilogram of milk oolong! Only cost me $40 and some change after taxes too!
I LOVE milk oolong, it’s the first thing I reach for when I need a cup of hot comfort. DAVIDs Quangzhou got me hooked, and I’m hoping to expand into others soon.
Now, I only have the Quangzhou to compare to, so take this with a grain of salt.
This seems like a greener, crisper oolong than the Quangzhou. At first I wasn’t sure if I liked it, as it gave the tea a more buttermilky taste as opposed to the sweet creaminess I grew to love in the quangzhou. That’s when I learned about rinsing the leaves before steeping, and that made a whole world of difference! The sourness was gone and I was left with a nice sweet cup of milk oolong goodness, though not quite as strongly flavoured as the quangzhou.
It almost reminds me of a milky tie guan yin, which I actually quite like, oddly enough.
What does Java think of it? Well, he’s a funny little brat. The first time I offered him an oolong, he flipped the bucket over! Offered him this and he sniffed it for a minute, and then looked at me. I added a bit of cold water to it, thinking it was just too hot for him, and the little stink stuck his nose in and blew bubbles! He did end up finishing it off, but for whatever reason THIS was the one he had to play with first. Silly pony
