All About Milk Oolong Tea
Milk Oolong is one of our absolute favorites. You can smell the milky notes as soon as you open the bag or container, and when steeped for a few minutes, you can hardly tell that you don't have a splash of milk in your cup of tea.
What makes the tea even better is that it can be re-steeped as many as five to eight times, getting you much more out of one serving than with other teas. Have it in the morning to replace your coffee, and then keep drinking it throughout the day!
Oolong tea is packed with good health benefits, including:
Weight Loss: A study published in the Journal of Medical Investigation showed that oolong tea improved metabolism and promoted weight loss when consumed regularly.
Heart Health: Research found that people who drank at least 10 ounces of oolong tea daily had lower risk of high total cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol levels.
Cancer Prevention: A number of small studies suggest that oolong tea may inhibit ovarian, lung, and skin cancer when consumed regularly.

Mouth Health: Fluoride, a compound added to tap water in most developed countries to aide in mouth and gum health, is a naturally occurring compound in oolong tea leaves.

I am sitting here enjoying my first cup of this Milk Oolong. Oooo la-la! It is so yummy. I thought it would be richer (as in a matcha) but it's pretty light and not really "creamy." But the flavor is just stunning. It's smooth and not tannic at all. It's got some flowery notes and even tastes like there is a hint of vanilla in it (which I could smell as soon as I opened the bag). Pretty amazing stuff and I will definitely be ordering again. :)
I’ve been drinking Milk Oolong for years, but Cup & Leaf has the best! It is a must try
I kid you not, you probably won't believe this has no milk either.
Of course, it doesn't taste like straight up milk though. The flavor of the oolong really carries the weight, with a creamy milk taste to round it out.
The flavor is on the lighter side, but I quite enjoy it.
i was expecting a milky rich taste... disappointed. the green jasmine tea
did not seem very good quality either.
