More About Milk Oolong
While oolong teas have been produced for hundreds of years, Milk oolong is a relative newcomer to the world of tea. Milk oolong originated in Taiwan, and is also sometimes referred to as Golden Lily tea. While our Milk Oolong is grown and harvested in the Fujian Province of China, it continues a rich tradition of milk oolong-style teas.
Our Milk Oolong is made up of tightly rolled tea leaves with a rich, intoxicating aroma. While Milk Oolong brews up clear with a light, golden hue, it has a distinctive milky taste with floral notes and a tangy, buttery finish. Like many oolongs, our Milk Oolong can be infused more than once, with the flavors changing and developing over time. Because Milk Oolong can be infused multiple times without losing its distinctive taste, it’s a great tea to enjoy over the course of an afternoon, allowing you to savor the subtly different flavors of each infusion. Whether you’re a long-time oolong lover or are just looking for something new, our Milk Oolong is sure to hit the spot!
- What's the difference between milk oolong and oolong milk tea?
Milk Oolong and oolong milk tea may sound like the same tea, but they may refer to different things depending on who you ask. Milk Oolong is an unflavored oolong tea with a milky, buttery taste. Oolong milk tea, on the other hand, is usually used to refer to a type of boba or bubble tea. This tea has an oolong base, to which milk, sweetener, tapioca pearls, and other ingredients are typically added.
- What does milk oolong taste like?
Milk oolong has a creamy, buttery taste, with a slightly floral character and a hint of acidity. Like many other oolong teas, milk oolong is partially oxidized, which gives it a medium body and a deep golden color.
- Can you add milk to oolong tea?
Milk oolong has a creamy, milky flavor all on its own. In most cases, we recommend enjoying oolong teas on their own, since they have a more delicate flavor and lighter body. But, if you enjoy taking your tea with milk, there’s no harm in adding a splash to your oolong tea to see how you like it!
- How long should you steep milk oolong tea?
We recommend steeping milk oolong tea for two to three minutes. Like other oolong teas, you can infuse milk oolong tea leaves multiple times.
