drank Milky Oolong by Harney & Sons
19 tasting notes

I am a little disappointed with this one. To be fair, I have only tried it once so far but it did not live up to my expectation. My experience with milky oolongs suggested this tea should start out vegetal with stone fruit flavors in later infusions. I also expected a floral nose and after taste. The stone fruit and floral after taste and nose never developed for me.
The spent leaf was dissapointing too. Instead of full leaves unfurling, the leaf was broken with few pieces as large as half a leaf.
The tea purchase was not a total loss. Overall the tea was pleasant, slightly unami marked with hints of spinach, nuts, oats and, of course, the milkyness expected in a flavored milky oolong. Overall I think the taste is quite good but no where near the complexity I expected. At $6.00 for 3 ounces this tea is still a good value. The tea is rich in flavor and very consistent in taste for up to 3 rebrews. I would recommend it with reservations. For the price the tea is consistent and tasty and sufficiently oolong to be worth drinking. However it is lacks complexity and does not hold up to brewing very long.

Overall I think Republic of Tea Milk Oolong is a better choice even at twice the price. The flavor profile is much more complex with new flavors developing right through 6-8 rebrews. For a widely available, commercially branded product, Republic of Teas Milk Oolong is a much better value.

Somewhere on the Sea of Cortez is a soggy gypsy. Right now she is probably in the galley making another cuppa. She can’t read the weather but she can read your tea leaves.
