drank Milk Oolong by American Tea Room
120 tasting notes

This is a delayed note, I sampled this about a week ago. The memory of it is still in my mind, the taste and aroma haunt me many days later. This was a special gift from my Second Steep Book Club cohort QuiltGuppy, and I have been saving it for weeks until I had a proper gaiwan to steep it in. I love caramel, and this tea gave me much pleasure with it’s creamy feel, and milky, smooth taste. I can understand now, as this is my first Milk Oolong, why it is so highly prized. I burned my fingers slightly using the gaiwan the first time, but after 6 steeps, I had the hang of it. 6 steeps, each a little different, but still so incredibly good. I loved every drop and when it was gone, the experience recalled a rare aged port I had the honor to try at the Ritz Carlton years ago…incredible. THANK YOU QG!

so glad you liked it….QG is a great ambassador!

QuiltGuppy

Yeah! I knew you’d love it! :) Hey, if I’m an ambassador, doesn’t that entitle me to a badge or something? I think I’ll have to ask my son to color one for me. Seriously, though, this is one of my favorite teas and I’m really happy that you enjoyed it as much as I do.

She is indeed, QG has broadened my tea horizons in a number of ways.
Yes, a badge and I think something special from ATR would be in order…but ya’ll may already have something worked out :) Regardless, the Milk Oolong was divine.

QuiltGuppy

Nope, I’m a free agent here. :) The one thing I love from ATR is that whenever you place an order, there’s always an extra sample of something new to try.

I tried a milk oolong… not my favourite. I couldn’t find much milk, but then I was new to tea tasting then

Was it this one? There was a discussion thread a while back that compared many of them, this one got very good comments.

No it was from David’s. I tried another from Tea Emporium once but it was only a sample and I didn’t have a chance to savour it.
