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.

Oolong Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 195° for 2-3 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin

Nope, there’s no milk in this tea, not in the soil and not in the leaf. Not a drop of dairy anywhere. But, oh, the milky sweetness in the cup will enchant you forever. From a 1980s cultivar of high-mountain Taiwanese teas, Milk Oolong is lightly roasted and its leaves rolled to preserve its intense flavor so that its liquor will be full bodied with an intoxicating floral aroma and buttery texture. Use a dedicated Yixing teapot for this tea to capture all its golden goodness. No wonder the Chinese call this Jin Xuan or Golden Lily.
