Creamy and sweet, this famous loose leaf flavoured oolong from Taiwan's Nantou region has a butter-rich softness comparable to caramel.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong light and odours. Once opened, store in an airtight container.
The distinctive taste of oolong tea is created through a process of partial oxidation, producing an infusion with slightly more body than a green tea though still significantly lighter than a black tea. Depending on different processing techniques, oolongs range from rich and deeply roasted to the fresh floral flavours often associated with high-grown oolongs.
Our aromatic loose leaf Milk Oolong is of the latter variety: it's floral without being florid, with a balanced sweetness and a thick creamy body. We'd suggest brewing lightly to enjoy its wonderful layers of flavour.

Oolong Tea, Flavouring.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Poised between black and green tea, oolongs are semi-oxidised, bringing them part of the way towards a fully oxidised black tea before arresting the process with heat. This allows for a huge range of flavours: so-called "jade oolongs" are closer to green tea, while darker oolongs like Big Red Robe are rich with autumnal, nutty flavours and a roasted aroma.
