Notes of toffee, coconut and orchids.
Zhu Shan, Nantou County, Taiwan.
A very special tea, our Milk Oolong uses well selected, high quality Taiwanese Jin Xuan tea, a special variety of the tea bush, which has a naturally sweet, creamy flavour and buttery mouthfeel, present even on the 4th or 5th steep.
Per cup: 1 tsp 90°C 4 minutes
Can be infused up to 8 times.
For oolongs we prefer the gong fu method of brewing, using a larger amount of leaf and shorter gradually increasing steeping times of 30 seconds.
A very popular oolong, our Milk, Oolong from Zhu Shan, Nantou County, Taiwan possesses a creamy aroma with hints of coconut, hard toffee along with the classic floral undertone present in so many high-end Taiwanese oolongs. High quality leaves from the Jin Xuan cultivar of the tea bush, which are naturally creamy in texture, are grown in altitudes around 900m above sea level amongst mist which protects the leaves from the strong sunlight. When picked, natural milk essence is added to further enhance the flavour of the brew.
In the early infusions, dessert-like notes are present, making a beautiful, balanced cup. In later steepings aromas of orchid flowers begin to appear. A wonderfully complex tea, sure to please most tea drinkers and even to convert those that aren't tea drinkers!
