I am a sucker for oolong, as it is one of my favorite types of tea. A really detailed and vibrant oolong tea seems hard to come by, as I have had numerous weak and disappointing brands.
This tea is a luxury all its own, with no sweetener or milk. Rich, velvety, buttery soft and smooth, it stays true to it’s name. There is a nice balanced milky flavor that gives an outstanding creamy silky texture that envelopes you, as you’re lost in wondrously light and fluffy thoughts.
The leaves have a slight vegetal aroma, which gave me a bit of a worry for the taste, but I suspect if I steeped it’s recommended time of four minutes, those vegetal flavors would kick in.
This oolong is a very nice and welcome surprise, and I do expect to lose myself in it’s buttery goodness more often.
