My first "milky" oolong. Hmmm...Read Full Review
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 ...

Oh, yum. So first of all, the scent of the dry tea is ridiculously sweet and creamy. It smells like some sort of candy, and makes me seriously question the notion that there are no flavourings involved in this tea. The leaves are very tightly rolled little balls. I used a generous teaspoon for 8oz of water, and tha...

Wow, this is quite a different tea from any others I've tried. Its flavor is at once vegetal, silky, savory, and a little salty. It's almost broth-like in its flavor and texture, but far more smooth. It tastes like a tea that would be good in the winter when you're craving something substantial and comforting, but not ...Read Full Review

Dry Leaf And Brewing Aroma: milky and buttery with a little hint of floral
Flavor: this tea is very light and “green”. I sipped it a bit and found the flavors to be pleasant, but quiet. I put the strainer back in and steeped to ...

I'm honestly not sure whether or not I'm tasting the "milky" quality intended, but silky and smooth are quite accurate. I would also say it has a soothing, muted, simple flavor. I've only tried a few straight oolongs and not been a big fan of them, but this one tastes quite comforting. It'd made a very nice everyday dr...Read Full Review

Dry Leaf Aroma: Sweet fruits, melon
Brewing Aroma: Same
Flavor: I don't taste any of the usual milk flavors, and this doesn't seem especially creamy to me. That being said, I think it's an excellent tea. It's swee...

Dry Leaf Aroma: powdered milk, popcorn topping, butter. Back in the day, my parents used to buy this powdered faux butter popcorn topping. You would pop your corn and sprinkle it on. That's what these tea leaves smell like!
Brewing Aroma: Milky and sweet, with a hint ...

The dry leaf aroma smells very much like powdered milk to me. Once brewing begins, I can smell the creamy aroma, and definite hints of jasmine.Read Full Review
The flavor is sweet, but a little too faint at first. I try longer steepings, and I can detect a very light buttery flavor. I was hoping for more milky flavor in the brewed ...

I purchased the Spring 2014 batch in a sample pack. The tea has a lovely flavor and has a creamy feel, but I didn’t get the milky flavor I was hoping for. To be fair, I did eat recently, so I am going to brew this again and see what I come up with. I liked this tea, but I am hoping a second try will give me the chanc...Read Full Review

A relatively mild, easy-to-brew oolong with a milky fragrance and lemony tang.Read Full Review
I recently tried a Jin Xuan oolong from the company Eco-Cha, and comparing it with this one was like night and day, as much as you can get with a green oolong. While that one was buttery, this tea was milky.
The dry leaf is very tight...

A buttery-smooth oolong that was pleasing, but I thought a bit boring. I'm not familiar with Jin Xuan (other than reading about it), so it may be that I'm just not a fan of this varietal.Read Full Review
Dry leaf is not very aromatic, but the brewed cup is more so.
Buttery and vegetably, with a smooth, silky texture. The aroma...

The aroma of this oolong is sweet and creamy with notes of fresh vegetation and lilacs. There is also a hint of nuttiness. Once it is brewed the aroma is still really sweet and creamy but it also has notes of green beans and a tiny hint of chestnut. Read Full Review

This is an unflavored milk oolong (teavivre has a different product that is the same thing but with milk flavor added), meaning that it's a pure oolong tea whose flavor is usually described as smooth or milky. I've been drinking it a lot lately, and trying it a number of different ways. What I've found in general is th...Read Full Review

I should say I like this tea, but I do have a gripe about labeling. Milk oolongs aren't, in and of themselves, flavored teas. As I understand it, the name is applied to a particular oolong variety that has a milk-y flavor and aroma. However, some companies add flavor to their milk oolongs further to increase the milkyn...Read Full Review

My first review and my first Milk Oolong and I'm head over heels in LOVE. Mmmm the smell and flavor are heavenly like milk candies. Very silky, creamy and buttery. I don't really detect any floral notes but there is some vegetal and it is good for quite a few resteeps about 5 or 6. I love this tea!!Read Full Review
