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.

Fresh From Origin
A relatively new style, Milk Oolong as we know it today only came into being during the 1980s. They are prized for the sweet, thick and creamy body, indicative of a high mountain oolong. Their pronounced "milky" flavor notes are a result of natural processes. However, not all Milk Oolongs are created equal. Taiwanese oolongs are not produced using milk, cream or dairy products. Though, due to the increase in popularity and demand, some producers have resorted to adding additional flavors to their teas. Buyer beware.
