Milk Oolong comes from the Jin Xuan cultivar grown in Taiwan. It has a beautiful floral aroma with a smooth, milky taste.
Legend has it, the moon saw a comet flying through the night sky. The moon quickly fell in love with the beauty and elegance of the comet however, the comet met upon a cruel fate as it entered the earth's atmosphere. The moon became very upset and in her sadness she blew a cool wind through the mountains over the tea fields. When a tea farmer awoke the next day he found that the cool wind had created a sweet milky flavour in his tea leaves - the 'Jin Xuan' Oolong, aka Milk Oolong was born.
Our Milk Oolong is a favourite among tea enthusiasts, it can be steeped multiple times and the full, hand-rolled leaves unfurl fully in your cup.
