The creaminess in this tea is much more prominent than other milk oolong I’ve had in the past. It smells on the verge of that artificial milk flavor, but I have hopes that it won’t taste that way! Once this tea has steeped, a fruitier, peachier note joins the creamy scent. I’m really looking forward to tasting this one now!
Sipping.. I notice that this tea has a heavy mouthfeel despite there being no additions. I really like that it has a thickness as I feel that it contributes well to the creamy flavors. Besides the soft milky beginning, I notice a little bit of peaches as well. It actually reminds me of those sweet, syrupy peaches that you can get in little plastic tubs. The finish is leafy and a little bit vegetal. What’s interesting is that these flavors are rather subtle and I feel like if I gulped this cup down, I wouldn’t notice them.
I definitely enjoyed this oolong and would purchase this in the future. If you’re looking to try a milk oolong, I’d suggest this one. It’s got a lovely balance of creamy and fruity flavors.
Here’s the scoop!
