Milk Oolong is a green oolong tea flavored with subtle, natural milk flavors to accent the sweet profile. The tea has a fresh, sweet, creamy flavor and a smooth, full texture. It has the beautiful flowery fragrance that is typical of Taiwanese oolong. The aroma and aftertaste are long-lasting, and there is a soothing cool sensation in the throat.

The Jin Xuan cultivar, meaning "Golden Lily", was developed in Taiwan in the 1980s to make a soft and creamy tea. Different tea cultivars have their own unique qualities. When grown at high altitude, Jin Xuan "Golden Lily" exhibits this creamy quality. This cultivar is specifically chosen for blending this flavored tea, as the tea only has to be subtly flavored to enhance the natural creaminess of the base tea.

Recommended for dessert lovers and the tea-drinking sweet tooth. Also a perfect gift for the novice tea drinker.
