Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: The Rabbit Hole
Some say oolong tea aids weight loss. We just say it tastes great with a smooth, creamy and sweet finish. Great for satisfying a craving for something naughty.

I’ve enjoyed most of the Milk Oolong teas that I’ve tried, but not all are created equal. Some tend to be too creamy and sweet to the point of being cloying, and tasting somewhat artificial.
This Milk Oolong from The Rabbit Hole, however, does not. This is a very good Milk Oolong. Yes, it’s sweet, and it’s creamy, but it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. There is a lightness to it that makes the creaminess taste natural and not contrived. It is incredibly smooth and sweet without tasting too sweet.
The aroma of the dry leaf is vegetal, reminding me of the smell of a fresh produce stand in the summer. That smell of leafy greens and ripe vegetables. It is fresh and lively.
That vegetal tone is in the flavor too, although it isn’t overly vegetative or grassy. These flavors meld with the creamy milk tones to provide a slight “creamed vegetable” kind of flavor with just a hint of butter in the mix.
A lovely Oolong from one of our favorite companies here at SororiTea Sisters: The Rabbit Hole!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
