EU Milky Oolong #3
Milky Oolong is an unusual tea from the Fujian Provence in China. Flavoring is added to the fresh tea leaves at origin giving the tea sweetish flavor reminiscent of milk Immediately after withering the still moist leaves are heated shortly in milk water steam, which conserves the pretty, lightly olive-green leaf and cup color and invokes the distinctive creamy scent and taste.
Milky oolong has a floral aroma with notes of honey. But the naturally creamy flavor sets it apart from other oolong varieties, when brewed properly, it has a silky smooth mouth feel unlike any other tea, each sip brings to mind buttery pastries and sweet custard. The tea is smooth and the aroma of warmed cream, the flavor is smooth with light, orchid notes.
