Thumbs up!"The taste itself reminds me of liquid gold. There is the natural sweetness of burnt sugar, a dab of vanilla with the bit of a bite of spices. Highly recommended!"

serendipteamilkoolongDigging through my stash of samples and wondering just what I felt in the mood for, I came across a Milk Oolong from SerendipiTea. I have heard a lot about milk oolongs but haven’t had the pleasure to see what all the hubbub is about.

I received a good sized sample of smaller dark green nuggets that I am anxious to try. After opening my sample, I begin to see why this variety of oolong has its devotees. The aroma reminded me of caramel vanilla ice cream! No wonder it is called a ‘milk’ oolong.

I set up my tea-maker with a slightly rounded tablespoon of the nuggets, a brew temp of 200 degree and a steep time of 1 minute. The resulting liquor is one of a pale gold. The aroma is still one of creaminess tinged with vanilla and almost a burnt sugar.

The taste is delightful. It has a heavier mouthfeel then most oolongs due to the natural creaminess. There is that bit of oiliness on the tongue that one will find with good oolong also. The taste itself reminds me of liquid gold. There is the natural sweetness of burnt sugar, a dab of vanilla with the bit of a bite of spices. Their website says cinnamon but that just doesn’t peg the spice to me. I would almost say nutmeg or allspice.

I have to freely admit that I am now hooked on SerendipiTea’s Milk Oolong. This isn’t an oolong that I would drink everyday but when I am looking for that extra bit with my oolong, this is perfect. I have added to my ‘need to have’ list from SerendipiTeas. And it doesn’t hurt at all that I can get four ounces for under $20 especially when you consider that oolong can be resteeped numerous times.
