Milk Oolong is a uniquely processed type of Oolong tea that is revered by tea coinsseurs world wide.
During the withering stage of processing, the leaves are exposed to milk steam and are infused and rolled in milky essences. This leads to an incredible soft and mellow note, as if you had added milk to the tea.
This Oolong has a light, warm scent, almost like freshly iced cupcakes, with no astringency in the flavour.

- Doesn't disappointReview by Lena
- This is my first milk oolong, purchased at the recommendation of a friend (to try any milk oolong.) I was pleasantly surprised at just how 'milky' this was when smelled in store, as I was skeptical. It smells exactly like condensed milk. I was a little worried when steeped, as initially the aroma had faded and the taste was subtle; even sour. But after cooling down and adding a bit of honey to enhance the sweetness, the tea indeed has a lovely creamy condensed milk flavour, even without milk. Definitely one of my favourite, comfort flavours, with the added benefits of green tea. I love it, and I'm picky. *Special bonus for lactose intolerance. (Posted on 2016-04-10)
