  • Full Description

    The distinctive taste of oolong tea is created through a process of partial oxidation, producing an infusion with slightly more body than a green tea though still significantly lighter than a black tea. Depending on different processing techniques, oolongs range from rich and deeply roasted to the fresh floral flavours often associated with high-grown oolongs.

    Our aromatic loose leaf Milk Oolong is of the latter variety: it's floral without being florid, with a balanced sweetness and a thick creamy body. We'd suggest brewing lightly to enjoy its wonderful layers of flavour.

NO.880

NUMEROLOGY

We’ve given our Milk Oolong the number 880, a nod to the bygone days of the 1880s when milk was delivered four times a day by horse-drawn carts. British milk bottles were first produced in 1880, and featured a stylish porcelain stopper – the very same bottles Walter Whittard would have found on his doorstep each morning…

TAIWAN

Taiwan has only been producing tea since the mid-17th century, but it's already become world-famous for its extraordinarily complex oolongs – from sweet and buttery varieties grown at high altitudes to darkly roasted oolongs with a robust, nutty taste.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
