September's Tea of the Month

Origin: Fujian Province, China
Leaf Type: Oolong
Taste: Creamy and sweet
Drink: Without milk
Brew: 3-5 minutes according to taste
When to drink:In the morning

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.
 

Ingredients

Oolong Tea, flavouring.

CONTAINS: DAIRY

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.

This tea continues to be pleasant, but when faced with other milk oolongs in the market, the vanilla flavour is rather lacking. Formosa Jade Oolong is a much fresher and similarly sweet oolong without flavouring and with a better quality leaf.
Thornbury lady, I would recommend milk oolongs that are marked as "pure oolong", "unflavoured", or "100% oolong" on the packets, rather than boasting a flavouring process or labelling it as green tea instead - often chinese and taiwanese tea shops provide the real thing.

Quite liked the unusual taste at first but after five minutes my tongue had a strange metallic after taste - so I'll give this the thumbs down and go back to my Formosa Oolong

It's a nice tea, refreshing and light, yet there are better teas out there. I agree with the reviewer below; incidentally Fran F, which milky ooolong would you recommend?

Absolutely love this yummy tea! I had not liked green teas before, and this one is a revelation. Smooth, creamy and comforting, this tea requires no milk and is best lightly brewed. If only there were more in the packet, I have used up the lot in a week, so must order more!

I adore the rich, milky flavour of this tea and the wonderful buttery aroma. It feels indulgent, yet it's good for you! Perfect!
