Okay, curiosity is killing the cat. I've seen a few of you mention drinking milk oolong. What is it & where does it come from? Thanx!

It's something about the soil conditions that makes the tea smooth.

it is the milk from cows who have been fed a diet of oolong leaves discarded from the processing plants.

I think an "Oy " is definitely called for here. Although I'm trying to cut down. :wink:

Milk just refers to the creamy or milky taste of the oolong. Also called silk Oolong. From what think I read somewhere it is a cold snap that changes the flavor and produces this taste.

I've had milk Oolong once (or twice? It may have taken a time or three to finish the sample I was sent). Though it was not a daily drinker for me, it would be nice to revisit.

The 'milk' taste is from the very smooth, if not buttery taste of the tea. Some even say they taste popcorn. I do remember somethign to do with the smell or taste of popcorn.
