Milk Oolong tea is a Taiwanese tea known for its creamy and buttery taste. Real Milk Oolong tea provides a sweet flowery scent and a taste of sweet butter and milk through gently roasted and rolled tea leaves. This tea belongs to Taiwan, a small country in Southeast Asia, that doesn’t have a lot of land area. That means that growing this milky tea is quite tough as there is not enough space. This leads to a limited amount of Milk Oolong tea which causes tea vendors around the world to sell fake versions. These low-quality versions have their smell intensified and have added artificial sweeteners and milk to copy the real tea’s taste.
It’s important to note that there is no actual milk in the teas. The tea has a very creamy flavour and does taste like milk, but that’s because of how the tea was harvested. Click here to try out this buttery sensation.
How is Milk Oolong Tea Made?
In order to reach the partial oxidation stage, tea crafters twist and bruise the leaves. The colour changes to either a brown or green as the leaves’ cell walls break down and oxidize. To stop the oxidation process, the leaves go through heating. This process happens several times until the desired flavour notes exist in the leaves. Moreover, the leaves grow on mountains and the elevation plays a major role in the tea. The higher the elevation, the more flavours, and aromas become intensely concentrated in the tea leaves. If you want the highest quality Milk Oolong tea, it needs to grow on a large mountain for that rich taste and scent.
