Milky Oolong loose leaf tea from Steenbergs is delicious, refreshing and quite sweet in flavour.

I’m on my fifth infusion now, and I’ve noticed that in these later infusions, a sour fruit taste begins to emerge. Not overwhelmingly sour, but a nice contrast to the sweet and creamy notes of the tea. A vegetal tone is also emerging – it is slightly sweet and complements the other flavors.

A really like this Oolong, and the more I sip it, the more I enjoy it.


Sometimes persistence pays off! Earlier I drank a nice puerh from Butiki and I just resteeped and am enjoying it again also! Cheers!

I got in a giant envelope packed with teas from TeaEqualsBliss today! I’m so excited to try all these new teas. I even saw a Verdant tea in there! It’ll be my first time trying out a tea from Verdant. I’ll have to save it for something special.

I decided to start with this. This will be my first milky oolong. I meant to steep it for three minutes. I set my little mesh basket in my cup, and set the timer on my laptop for three minutes. I turned away to finish making lunch. When I turned back, the timer had gone off, but I never heard it! This could have steeped for three minutes and two seconds, or ten minutes! Either way at least it still tastes good.

While hot, this was creamy and smooth, with just a bit of sourness on the back of the tongue at the end of the sip. Now that it’s cooled some down to just warm, the sips are overall more creamy. Though while it was cooling, I did take a big bite of soup that I thought was a lot cooler than it was, and burnt my tongue some. Hopefully it’s not affecting my tastes too much. I’ve never really played around with multiple steeps before, but I think I’ll give it a try with this and see what I get.

I just got a box in the mail. The box came from LiberTEAS. For those of you who don’t know she puts awesome samplers together that she sells on her website. More importantly ,for those of you who don’t know she only had one left and is too busy to make more for a little while and I got the last one. It’s sweet.

Enough with the immaturity. I now have to give a proper tasting note on Steenbergs Milky Oolong. I haven’t had this tea for 3-4 weeks. I wrote a note off memory just because it was my first favorite tea. I got a little more from LiberTEAS ( thank you sooo much! ) and so now can write a note as I sip, properly.
Dry leaf smell is fruity and floral, my mind jumps to-DESSERT.Leaves are slow to unfurl and the fruity notes start to intensify once infused. Liquor is a pale golden color. The first drink you can’t help but notice the sweet fruity taste, for me it’s something between strawberries and blueberries. It’s literally hard to believe this flavor comes naturally with no additives. There’s really no astringency and my mouth actually waters while I drink this magical oolong. I tap my feet through 4 more steepings, increasing the time 15 seconds each one, it’s still a testament of amazing deliciousity. This would be a good tea for someone who typically sweetens to go ‘oh naturale’. Before ending this note I must also thank Pureleaf for suggesting I drop my temp from boiling to 190 degrees thereby encouraging the full potential of flavor to be released. I was happy with it before, yet when making this change there was a distinct increase in it’s sweetness.
Tapping my foot to Silly Wizard-a celtic/gaelic band from the 70’s&80’s. The set was Fisherman’s Song/Isla Waters/Parish Of Dunkeld/Twa Brithers.

I’m going to check this out. I’m on a major milk oolong kick! Thanks for the great review! If you know of any other really nice milk oolongs, please let me know!

Thank you LiberTEAS for this sample!

As previously mentioned, the leaves are slightly flatter than expected and not as tightly rolled, which seems to encourage the leaves to unfurl slightly faster. The quality of the liquid seems to make this a moot point, as it is produces a nice relaxing cuppa tea.

As many of the Milk Oolongs, there is plenty of the prominent floral and fruity notes, of which this particular one brings a very good balance of both. It seems to be a nice choice for one that is non-interested in a stronger fruity flavor.

There is a small amount of astringency, but not overbearingly bitter. I found this tea to work well shortly after breakfast, as this seemed to compliment my meal and smooth my palate.

The color in the cup is more of a melon to tangerine, but changes quickly to a darker persimmon juice visual. This doesn’t seem to change the taste and is still enjoyable, even if you aren’t able to finish the cup immediately.

I received large packed envelope from TeaEqualsBliss
Thank you!
I was a little overwhelmed when I opened the package but excited because there is so many teas I have not even heard of! How Fun!
I spotted this tea right away and headed for the tea kettle.
I have wanted to try a Milky Oolong for awhile now.
The dry leaves do not have any distinct odor to them.
Add water and you get a delicate creamy oolong odor arising to your nose.
I cannot think of the right word for the first taste that reaches my tongue but its bringing forth autumnal memories.
It reminds me of raking damp moist leaves, then a bit of astringency reaches the back of your tongue right before you swallow.
Very, lovely light afternoon tea.
Beautiful blond color.
Brewed in my Bodum.
