So I’d been eyeing this one since it came out, and in my last Deb order I finally broke down and ordered a 75g bag. I usually only order her 25g size, but she doesn’t offer that size in oolongs for some reason.
Welp, I guess it’s been a while since I’ve had a flavored milk oolong, because I was not prepared. The cream flavoring here is so strong and over the top, it almost turns my stomach a bit. Very heavy and rich whipping cream sort of notes, or as Kelly (Roswell Strange) said, churned butter. Yeah, that’s pretty much spot on. I barely taste the hojicha to be honest, but I do pick up on some of those toasty notes in the finish.
So yeah, this one is going into the rehoming box. Maybe in the future I’ll try to recreate a similar tea with unflavored milk oolong though… ;)
Flavors: Butter, Coconut, Cream, Oily, Rich, Silky, Smooth, Thick, Toasty
