Milky Alishan High Mountain Oolong from Oollo Tea is one of those teas you didn’t know you MISSED until you had another cuppa after a long pause in between. A classic case of ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone’ I guess.
Once upon a sniff I knew right away this was a Milky Alishan. It’s been TOO LONG since my last solid milky aroma like this! The tea liquor is pretty pale creamy yellow but the flavor is the true shining star here! There is a real freshness to this sip one that is minty without actually having MINT in it. It’s crisp and clean. There is a sweet yet creamy linger to it that goes on for miles!
Milky Alishan High Mountain Oolong from Oollo Tea has those amazing thirst-quenching capabilities and as it cools a bit at room temperature the floral notes come out to play more.
The layers of flavor continue to amaze me. I take an enchanting journey into its complexity.
I’ve enjoyed a slew of Milky Alishans but there is something about this one, specifically, that stands out. I’m not sure what it is but I LOVE it. Milky Alishan High Mountain Oolong from Oollo Tea is a true gem!
