Ignore the dubious stories of "tea steamed over milk".
Instead, take a look at these authentic Taiwanese Oolongs crafted from the pure, unscented (and naturally creamy) Jin Xuan cultivar.
Every year we taste through 100s of samples to find leaf worthy of True Tea status. When it comes to the milky Oolong teas these 3 are the cream of Alishan.
FIRST, SOME FACTS ABOUT 'MILK OOLONG'
EXTRA CREAMY - Lily Cream Whip
An ultra-deluxe Jin Xuan with extra creamy confection. Malted milk, creamed spinach, marshmallow and parma violets.
RICH & LUXURIOUS - Alishan Cream
This Alishan Cream has a really pronounced milkiness which lasts over several infusions. Tinned peaches and cream with toasted pound cake.
ROASTED & SMOOTH - Midnight Sun
Dark roasted over charcoal. Crème brulee and pandan leaves. Malt milkshake, pecans and dried mulberries. This is a darker brew of the creamy Jin Xuan cultivar.
