type: oolong

origin: china

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Milk Oolong is a relatively new cultivar in the delicious world of Taiwanese teas and is prized for its inherent cream and butter notes. Lower quality versions have these notes enhanced through aromatization but the finest, true Milk Oolongs offer lightly roasted, rolled leaves that yield a light-bodied cup with sweet buttery texture and delicate floral aroma. Also called Jin Xuan or Golden Lily, it is ideal for multiple infusions and a dedicated Yixing teapot. Steep at 195°F for 2-3 minutes

      This tea is a favorite of mine. I love oolong's to begin with, but this one is so smooth and creamy I could almost drink it plain, but add a drop of cream and it's heavenly!!😻💖

      Milk oolong is very pricey and hard to find. Adagio's is no exception. Its great and really different than other teas. Really expensive but worth a try
