Strongly and unmistakably sweet/milky/creamy; I love it, but I can see how it might be offputting to some. Definitely something one has to be in the mood for. I don’t see how it can’t be flavoured, though the milkiness lasts through quite a lot of infusions; I’ve had milk oolongs that were of unknown flavouredness and Taiwanese High Mountain milk oolongs that were definitely not flavoured, and this is nothing like the latter category.
The leaves are still intact; maybe medium to large in size?

It was definitely not something to my taste, but one of my colleagues at work loved it and I gave the rest to him. He keeps reporting back, enjoying it.

Where did you get the ‘definitely not flavored’ versions? That’s what I was hoping this one might be.

I hunted around a bit; I think I got a milk oolong sampler from Tea from Taiwan? Maybe? It’s been a while, so I don’t well remember, though it looks like they do right now offer definitely-unflavoured varieties. It was nothing like the flavoured (or assumed-to-be-flavoured) stuff that DTH and other vendors have.

Thanks. I’ll check them next time I have a hankering to try something different. Right now I have an abundance of other oolongs from the last round of orders, so it will be a while.
