These hand-rolled leaves are a rich olive-green color and brew up into a beautiful golden liquor. This relatively new cultivar of tea has a distinctive mellow, buttery flavor.

This luxury Milk Oolong tea is carefully blended and packaged by hand in a reusable tin or a resealable kraft bag. Our 4 oz. tin or kraft bag makes approximately 40 cups of tea. Our 8 oz. kraft bag makes approximately 80 cups.


Oolong tea (Origin: Fujian Province, China)

Tasting Notes

Soft and buttery, with a creamy mouthfeel, floral and vegetal notes, and a lightly acidic finish.

How To Brew Milk Oolong

Use 1 level teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water until briskly steaming (not boiling). Steep for 2 - 3 minutes. This tea will easily handle multiple infusions.

To prepare Milk Oolong, we recommend that you use a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods give the tea leaves enough room to expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup. Like many oolong teas, Milk Oolong can be infused many times over.

Milk Oolong Caffeine Content

Oolong tea contains a moderate amount of caffeine, less than half as much as coffee per cup.

Milk Oolong Benefits

Oolong tea boosts energy, helps with focus, and supports digestion.

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.

I'm fairly new to brewing loose leaf tea. After reading about the different kinds, I was interested in Oolong. This is my first one and it does not disappoint. It has instantly become my favorite tea, but that's not coming from an experienced tea drinker. Now I wonder what I have been missing with all these other varieties. I will definitely be finding out! What a great company!

My new favorite tea

I am in love with this tea and marvel at its nuanced, comforting flavor with every sip. I purchased this in Santa Fe and enjoyed speaking with the owner and browsing her delightful store. Next order will be 8 ounces and purchased from the informative website.

Milk Oolong makes my morning!

I absolutely love Milk Oolong Tea. It has a milky smooth feel to me and every sip is "like the first time" I tasted it. I have been purchasing and drinking loose leaf tea from Artful Tea for over 20 years and I absolutely love the selections! I can always rely on the quality, flavor and freshness. And they are the fastest shippers of any product with the loveliest presentation, I have ever dealt with. I never let my inventory run low as I can't have a day without it.

New favorite from Artful

This tea has become one of my favorites! I thought to try this out as a burgeoning lover of oolong tea, and it has a very smooth, and indeed a fairly milky, flavor to it, as well as a light natural sweetness. I have been brewing this very often since purchasing and I'm already nearly at the end of my bag! An absolutely fantastic tea.
