Milk Oolong

Product Details

The crème de la crème of our oolong collection.

 

Creamy and sweet, this famous flavoured oolong from Taiwan's Nantou region has a butter-rich softness comparable to caramel.
 
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 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.

Origin

Taiwan

Taiwan is home to some of the world’s finest oolongs, from sweet and buttery varieties grown at high altitudes to darkly roasted oolongs with a robust, nutty taste. The Taiwanese tea industry was first established when tea workers from Fujian in China crossed the Taiwanese straits in the mid 17th century, profiting from the soaring altitudes of Northern and Central Taiwan to create some of the world’s most spectacular tea gardens. Unlike the large plantations of China, India and Sri Lanka, these smaller tea gardens tend to be family run, creating tastes unique to the particular terrain.

No.880

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.

A note from Whittard

“At the moment I’m really into white tea blends, like Chelsea Garden and White Chocolate Tea. Both are amazing with anything creamy. Fondant fancies add a touch of kitsch!”
