drank Milky Oolong by unknown name
408 tasting notes

Well sorry no idea of the name of the the tea company … that would be German .

It therefore comes from the tea shop les thés d’Émilie, better known by its brand name on the Boulevard Haussmann : Twinings shop . You can see photos on their website, I’m sure this shop is familiar to any walker on the bd Haussmann http://www.lesthesdemilie.fr/ . I also received a very warm welcome.

I found this little tea in the midst of many twinings boxes.

Scent : the dry leaf is very buttery like any good Milky Oolong tea but with a very vegetal note.

The leaves swell quite a lot during brewing .
They unfold and we get beautiful whole , fine and very green leaves.
The liquor is a lovely pale yellow, translucent

The taste is an extremely creamy and very vegetal tea . It’s creamed spinachs for me. It is therefore a very little oxidized variety of Oolong .

At the second infusion the vegetable side fades considerably, but the creamy side as well. This tea has a pleasant taste but nothing more.

This is clearly not the Milky Oolong that could dethrone the Theodor in my heart.
Unlike what the nice lady told me at the Twinings shop , no, all the milk Oolongs are not the same and moreover they do not all come from Taiwan. Some also come from Fujian in China. So weird to hear from a personne working in a tea shop that all Milk Oolongs are the same.

You can the big leaves here :http://thevangeliste.wordpress.com/2014/11/15/milky-oolong-les-thes-demilie/

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Taiwan tea Crafts, Teavivre, Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard (or very often ! )

94 to 90 : Excellent tea

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even quite nice, why not having it sometimes, but well,it’s not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this thing supposed to be tea ?!?!?
