I recently tried this tea on a trip to a local tea house and had never heard of a milk oolong before. I was told that the process involved withering the leaves over a milk bath, which imparts a creamy, dairy flavor. It came in a little white teapot and as I poured it into my cup I found it to be slightly lighter and more opaque than a usual oolong. The flavor was quite unique as it has the traditional qualities of oolong (grassy, floral notes) but with a distinct milk flavor. I wasn’t a huge fan of this one as I don’t love milk on its own, so adding it to tea was a bit off-putting. My favorite aspect was the aftertaste as the milk flavor wained and became more toasty and aromatic. I’m glad to have tried it!
