Jin Xuan Milk Oolong
...It indeed has a light creamy flavor layered in on top of its orchid like notes and smooth taste. Our Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is high (mountain) grown in Taiwan at around 3500 feet in cool mists which allow the tea leaves to grow more slowly and develop better flavor...

Page 1 of 1 page with 1 reviewMy first "milky" oolong. Hmmm...
The aroma of the dry, dark, greenish-brown balls is overpoweringly sweet. I was shocked at how much it smells like caramel popcorn, with a creamy milk-like background. Quite bizarre, and smells more like something I'd eat rather than drink.
There's a lot of controversy with Milk Oolongs...are they flavored or not? With this one I just do not know, but I'd say that it probably is scented with something. Milk? Cream? I have no idea. But I don't think a pure tea could smell like this, although it's possible I suppose.
I brewed it up using 195 degree water and a generous amount of leaf.
When steeped the aroma becomes even more pronounced, but this time more of a sour cream, or even cheese aroma! I'm not too crazy about this.
The flavor of the light yellow liquor tastes like a combination of butter, cream and green oolong. Despite the very smooth texture in my mouth, an unpleasant sour note is present.
Overall not a very pleasant flavor...kinda sickening in a way.
So then, my first milk oolong was very odd indeed. I'll go with the rating of 50 because there is a chance it might just be an acquired taste.
Perhaps it would be good served ice cold?
I don't see myself drinking this very often.
