Milk Oolong Description:

Milk Oolong is a relatively new cultivar in the delicious world of Oolong teas and is prized for its inherent cream and butter notes. These lightly roasted, rolled leaves yield a light-bodied cup with sweet buttery texture and delicate floral aroma.

Also called Jin Xuan or Golden Lily, it is an ideal candidate for multiple infusions in a dedicated Yixing teapot. The first three infusions of this tea will have slight milky scent, whereas this scent will gradually reduce for the next cups.

  1. Fruity, milky, buttery, and so fragrant 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 11th 2020

    This has to be one of my favorite oolong teas of all time. The first time I had a milk oolong was an eye-opening experience in the world of oolongs, but it was a cheaper variety that I had bought from a supermarket. This milk oolong is far superior to my previous experience, and the flavors are so balanced with no one flavor overpowering the other.

    There are fruity aromas blended with cream, and butter that just perfectly blend with the floral flavors that you'd expect from a lighter oolong. This tea has a very nice mouthfeel that finishes smooth.

    I infused 4.5 g of tea in 12 fl oz of water at 200 F for 5 minutes for the first infusion.

    Milk Oolong has the comforting aroma of rich milk and flavors that are subtle and delicious. You don't need to add a thing for a perfectly relaxing cup of tea. It has become a favorite of mine.
