Milk Oolong Tea Loose Leaf Quangzhou Multi Sizes


 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 
produced between March and December is plucked from gardens situated between 500 – 1200 meters.

Next, the plucked leaf is withered in air-conditioned rooms until it has reached the desired level of fermentation. The fermented tea is rocked or sifted to sort the prime leaf required and steamed over a fire. Finally, the tea is dried and then re-sorted to ensure leaf quality and packed.

Its 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.

A little gift for my daughter of her most favourite tea. It’s delicious

Ruby (Radstock, GB)

My daughter favourite tea from China. I treat her to a packet when I buy my decaf tea. I occasionally drink it but she just loves it. Teacakes are just so efficient at sending out the best tea I can buy

Sam Jones (Newton Abbot, GB)
Awesome green tea

A really unique somewhat sweet (and milky) flavour that is now my favourite. Well worth the higher price!

A.C. (Glasgow, GB)
Very different!

I made the first cup far too strong; the second, weaker, and it is delicious. Despite the cost, I will be ordering this again.
