Whittard's Milk Oolong Tea is a flavoured creamy oolong from the Fujian Province in China with a delicious butter-like aroma, perfect for drinking in the morning.
Oolong teas are ranked as some of the best in the world, with semi-fermented leaves half way between a black and a green tea. Their floral, lingering sweetness comes from a process of repeatedly bruising and shaking the leaves. Milk Oolong is lightly flavoured to enhance its creamy character.
Whittard's Milk Oolong is best brewed lightly to appreciate the multi-layered aromas that can be compared to rose, vanilla and caramel.
