Milky Oolong Tea
Milky Oolong Tea is a harmonious composition of a lightly oxidized Oolong Tea with sweet milk aromas. The result of this variation of scenting tea leaves has been enjoying great and constantly growing popularity both in the main producer countries China and Taiwan and in the west. While Milky Oolong Tea is often described as a typical entry vehicle to the world of Oolong teas or tea in general, this also applies vice versa: many “tea purists”, who might not fancy flavored teas otherwise, will sheepishly admit that at times they just can’t say no to a delicious Milky Oolong tea.
Top grade Milky Oolong Teas, such our Taiwanese Jin Xuan Milky Oolong reveal the secret behind this popularity and persuasive power already with the opening of the package, from which an intriguing and tantalizing fragrance emerges. While the sweet milk and vanilla aromas widely overlayer the dry tea leaves own scent, the taste of the liquor delivers even beyond the olfactory promise. In this, the anticipated creamy-sweet milk and vanilla flavors combine with the earthy and floral notes that are typical for Jin Xuan Oolong tea to a perfectly harmonious, long lasting flavor that simply whets one’s appetite for more. Which is no problem, as our Jin Xuan Milky Oolong will always produce a worthy second and third infusion. At this, every individual infusion will surprise and please with its own individual taste profile.
The processing of Milky Oolong tea often reads as a “steaming of the tea leaves with milk”. However, this description doesn’t properly match the reality. As milk – and thereby also milk vapor – is highly perishable. Accordingly, any residues of such condensates on the leaf would soon deteriorate, rendering the tea inedible as a result. In fact, the flavoring – or scenting – takes place either with natural milk extracts or with artificial aroma substances. In both cases, the tea leaves take on a milk-like scent and/or flavor. Hence, besides the basis tea, the selected aroma donor and its qualified application and dosing also are crucial quality criteria.
