 Quangzhou Milk Oolong 

An unmistakable burst of wild orchid exquisitely balanced with milky cream notes, a superior tea that's an absolute must for Oolong fans. The tea is produced in relatively small quantities from March to December; in fact, only 80,000 kg are produced with about 60,000 kg heading for the export market.

One of the many legends explains that the first time this shift occurred was centuries ago when the moon fell in love with a comet passing through the night sky. The comet, as all comets do burnt out and vanished. The moon, in sorrow, caused a great wind to blow through the hills and valleys bringing about a quick drop in temperature.
The next morning, local tea pluckers went out to collect their fresh leaf. To their surprise, when the tea was processed it had developed an amazing milky character
, which was attributed to the character of the old moon.
Milk Oolong, like all Oolongs, is considered
 semi-fermented, it is somewhere between a black and green tea. Over the years, production methods have remained unchanged for the most part although some aspects like withering temperatures have been automated and regulated. First, the leaf is plucked from gardens situated between 500 – 1200 meters and is produced between March and December.
Next, the plucked leaf is withered in air-conditioned rooms until it is has reached the desired level of fermentation. The fermented tea is rocked or sifted to sort the prime leaf required, and steamed over a hot fire. Finally, the tea is dried then re-sorted to ensure leaf quality and packed.

It's wonderful milky flavour is the result of a very rare sudden shift in temperature during harvest.

Another outstanding oolong for people who like their tea smooth and silky, this milk oolong is as good as they get, a wonderfully rounded crisp infusion of the highest quality, why not treat yourself or an appreciative friend to an experience of this highly prized gem.

Extraordinary flavour

This tea is incredible! We like a glass of wine with dinner, but don't want to drink alchohol every day so have been experimenting with teas as an alternative. Oolong is very low in caffeine so would be good with an evening meal. This particular tea is quite unexpectedly wonderful! It has an extraordinary, slightly perfumed flavour and scent. Not like any other tea at all. It reminds me of something, and it might be lychees, I'm not sure.
I would say this tea is ideal with dinner, but I think I would hate it for breakfast or during the day.
I will certainly be buying more of this despite the price!

I'm afraid I really didn't like this tea. Just not to my taste, a bit too milky and not much flavour.
