From Tea Chai Te

Our Velvet Oolong is a true, high-mountain milk oolong grown in Taiwan and has a light, velvety smooth brew. Milk Oolongs are known for their wonderful floral aroma, buttery smooth texture, and a sweet, milky, & lightly roasted flavor – ours is no exception! Taking 1st place in Oregon’s first State Tea Competition, our Velvet Oolong is also a top contender for “most favorite tea” among our lovely customers.

Delicious! It’s been a while since I’ve had this Oolong. It is a milk Oolong, and I just learned that in last year’s Oregon Tea competition it won 1st place. Cool.

A lovely milky/fresh cream taste with just a hint of buttermilk to it. The floral tones in the background are very lovely, and they emerge more with subsequent infusions (I’m on my third and fourth infusion now).

I like this one a lot.

Thanks LiberTEAs for this one.

This not only smells but tasted a little like buttermilk. I’m not really sure how I feel about that to be honest. This one somewhat surprised me…not a good surprise or a bad surprise…just a surprise. I wasn’t expecting buttermilk. As it cools there is more of a vegetal and floral taste to it. The aftertaste is of powerful flowers.

My rating may change but for now this is one of the most ‘odd’ tasting oolongs I have had…thus far. Don’t take ‘odd’ as a bad thing…it’s just different…

I had this a couple of years ago. It’s technically a Milk (or Silk?) Oolong. So that could be why it had the buttermilk aspect.

I was reading that…it’s was a bit weirder than the usual milk oolong, ya know!? LOL

Finally got the chance to visit and try Tea Chai Te! I was meeting a friend there but he ended up at a different location and I had to wait for quite a while. Meanwhile, while I was perusing the tea menu for loose leaf to bring home the woman working there kindly brought me out a nice cup of tea on the house(Vanilla Peach Apricot). I was the only one in the place at the time but it did get busy later on. We had a good conversation about Steepster and the PDX Tea Festival and she recommended a tea room as well.

I ended up ordering this cup of tea and they weren’t serving pots yet due to Covid. I remember it being really hot as I sipped it. It was somewhat buttery but in a different way than the other milky oolongs, I’ve tried in the past. The floral notes were balanced and even though it was a little different than other milk oolongs I still enjoyed it.

I’ve only been to one of the TCT locations (in a downtown location near a Salt and Straw Ice Cream) but I love it there. Every time my friend and I go to Portland, we go there.

The one I went to was son Mississippi in the Alberta area so I think it was a different location. It was really nice though and I remembered your Tea Chai Te reviews. I actually ended up getting some of the macadamia nut mate tea loose leaf that I’ve wanted to try ever since reading your review. (:

Mastress Alita

Oh! I love that Mate! I also love their teas dusted in chocolate powder, like the Rainforest Chai! Their Mt. Hood Vanilla is quite bomb too… I just have too many favorites, lawl! (I admittedly know nothing about streets/locations as my vacation partner-in-crime Todd takes care of all navigation, but I believe it was the NW 23rd Ave location where we always go).

Lexie Aleah

I’ll have to check that location out next time and grab some of that vanilla tea as well!

An unusual oolong that reminded me of buttered popcorn in taste and especially in smell (in a good way). It has a creamy flavor to it – a pleasant departure from the expected. I rated it a 75 in that I enjoyed it but I don’t know anything about its quality or origin. I might update my rating after I learn more. I recommend this tea to adventurous palates but not those expecting a traditional oolong flavor.
