No more milk oolong for a while – they’re just NOT my thing.

Amazing when paired with Irish Cream. Smooth, milky, just delicious.

8th tea of Christmas!
This was interesting because it’s not really like a milk oolong, it’s more like a dulce de leche oolong. Not really milky, but kind of sweet more in the sense of condensed milk and caramelly. I really liked it though.
I wonder how much it costs to ship here, because the taste of this is exactly what I have always wanted, but as salted caramel. I feel like this has the caramel flavor I want although I haven’t ever bothered to actually taste many other caramel oolongs. But this is so good why would I want to? Not sure if I used it all for my cup though. I have tea everywhere right now.
Last “milk” oolong in the Battle of the Milk Oolongs series. RIght away, you can tell this has a lot more fragrance than the others. And I’m talking creaminess, and almost caramel-like too.
Yeah yeah. it’s not a true milk oolong, but I really don’t care. What matters is how it tastes, and it indeed tastes lovely. I can see where others get sweetened condensed milk. It definitely has that going on. I actually oversteeped this as I was frantically putting on my makeup because today already sucks so much; yet, it didn’t turn out bitter or vegetal. According to my last note, this was a little on the bland side, so I wonder if that was due to a much shorter steeping time. Time will tell.
For now, I’m really glad I picked this one up.
Not a true milk oolong- but a milky flavoured oolong none the less. After becoming a lover of oolong (and being nearly out of Davids Tea milk oolong), I decided to give this tea a go as I can purchase it locally.
Dry: Leaves are more broken up and more stems then Davids Tea (which is to be expected if you pay $5/50g in my opinion). Smells like condensed milk. I like that. Wet leaves unfurled rather quickly (almost all open after one steep).. though again, to be expected.
Liquor: Deeply rich carmel colour. It smells heavenly actually. Sunshine (and yellow) comes to mind for some reason when I smell this which makes me happy. Caramelly sweet smell with a touch of vanilla and camomile (random). The taste is pleasing – I can definitely taste the oolong and there is a buttery sensation/flavour as an intermediate note. No real substantial aftertaste, except a mild candy note.. like a gummy real fruit candy, except not sweet. It’s subtle but nice.
Note: I am half delirious right now due to lack of sleep and I am pretty sure I put in 1 tbsp for my whole 6oz cup. I’m not sure why I did that. Or why I let it steep longer then I usually would. At least with my trusty thermometer I now know exactly what temperature water was used (93C). Due to these factors – I will hold off on rating until I figure out my life and stop mucking up my tea! (Thank goodness I didn’t try playing with my Verdant tea yet.. I definitely need more sleep for that session!)
Day #8 for the 12 Days of Christmas swap. Thank you Roswell!
I LOVE Milky Oolong. It is by far one of my favorite teas. I was hoping whoever had day 8 would provide a milk oolong:) This had an interesting twist. It had a much darker (not as green oolong) taste than the other milky oolongs I have had. It had a bit of a caramel flavor too it and a little less milky-ness to it. I like. I wish I had a few more cups of this to compare cup to cup with.
Eighth day of Christmas time traveling tea! I have been drinking this tea sparingly since I got it, because I love it! It’s very naturally sweet, and full-bodied. When I say naturally sweet, I mean it; it tastes as if there were sugar in the cup (there’s not, I checked.) It’s also just very light. In short, it’s delicious. Thank you so much to Roswell Strange for this lovely tea!
I’m humming Light My Candle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlVBOxVCjCU) because I just got back from RENT at my school. It was amazing. I am so inspired by everyone there. Also, It’s the second day in a row i’ve seen it, and it still brought me close to tears. So this is a nice way to end the night.
I have been on a Milk Oolong craze ever since I tried the one from David’s Tea. I bought this on a whim, because the Tea Desire at a nearby mall had a closing down sale and its price is hard to beat (CAD$5/50g). Please do not let its name fool you however. This is NOT a Milk Oolong. It would be better described as a Caramel Oolong, I think. Nonetheless, as a caramel-flavoured tea, it is sweet, pleasant, and lovely to serve when having guests.
