This ultra-rare oolong from the Wuyi Mountains of China is velvety smooth and lightly creamy, with a subtle hint of orchid. It’s said that it came about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears, which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess. It’s been a rare luxury ever since.
Quangzhou Milk Oolong has a sweet, fresh aroma with strong grassy notes. Featuring hints of lemongrass and orchid scents it is light but complex.
Smooth and creamy, this oolong is one of my favourites. Lovely grassy green tea notes are balanced perfectly by subtle floral orchid hints while a faint sweetness provides a great compliment to the milky flavours.
