From Todd & Holland

The dry leaf actually has an aroma of milk and the brew has a wonderful creamy taste. It delights the customers in the store and is a favorite of the staff

This is delicious! So creamy and milky, and not overly floral. The milk flavors do not cancel out the taste of the oolong tea. Smooth and calming. Not too sweet, but not at all astringent or bitter. Full of flavor.

I will write more later, after I’ve had a chance to resteep this. My very first thought is this tastes almost identical to American Tea Room’s Milk Oolong. It even smells and looks like it.

Thank you, Todd & Holland, for the sample! I’ll be back to buy it.

Thanks to Mel for the sample of this!
I am very skeptical about milk oolong. Not because I’ve had one before, but because I’ve heard so much ‘controversy’ over them, whether you can find a genuine one or whether it is artificially flavored.

Well, I am on my 5th steeping (I think?) and it is still delicious. Actually, in some ways I think it might be getting better!
I didn’t preheat the pot, but simply used the quick rinse with boiling water to preheat it.
I started with steeps just under boiling for 15 seconds, 15 again, 25, 30, and now 40.

The aroma of the heated leaf was delicious, and the color of the liquor was a very clear yellow/green. The taste/aroma was like sweet cream + butter of popcorn. SO good.
The 2nd and 3rd steeps were somewhat muted; I was at this point wondering whether it was genuine or not. Again, not that I’d have anything to go by other than the milk flavor giving out after a steep or two. The 3rd one in particular made my mouth dry, it was somewhat parching, almost like sand paper? It was still decently good though, so I drank it up.

Now to the 5th steeping, the sweet, subtle flowery aftertaste is powerful and fills the throat. We’ll see if it will continue further. Though I’ve had Tie Kuan Yin many times, for my first experience with specifically a ‘milk’ oolong, this is a very good one.

If it’s a Ti Guanyin from Quanzhou Province, China, chances are it’s an authentic milk (or silk) oolong. If it’s from Taiwan, it’s a “Jin Xuan” and is merely scented with milk.

I don’t know for sure, because I got it in a swap and it looks like the info. on the tea here is very limited. However, based on the fact that it really had lots of flavor through many infusions, I’m guessing it wasn’t scented or flavored.

I had to bump the rating on this up. I spent a lazy day just rebrewing this over and over. I gave up after 7 since it was bedtime. It was delish each time. I had time to enjoy the slight changes. Smooth, silky, and a light caramelized milk flavor.

It’s very pricey, but I think I could drink this all over again. One for enjoyment.
