2 Tasting Notes
As with most oolong, this tea is good for several steeps, and the flavour changes subtly with each one. It has a pleasant, creamy odour with earthy undertones, and the initial flavour is much the same. This tea tastes almost like it has already had a small amount of milk added to it (hence the name), with hints of the round, almost nutty flavour I’ve come to associate with oolongs. As you steep it more, the milk flavour becomes less prevalent, with the “oolong” flavour becoming more dominant, though it maintains a creamy smoothness throughout the steeps. This tea is delicious, I could happily drunk it all day!
This tea is very smoky, almost too smoky for me to drink. However, when I’m in the mood, it can be nice, and if I liked sweetened teas, sugar or honey would probably help. My partner loves the stuff, though – he can happily drink it all day! If you like smoky teas, this is likely to be a good pick (and for a reasonable price), but if that’s not your thing, then you may want to avoid this tea.
