Ah oolong – the unsung hero of the tea world, a firm favourite of mine and a MUST try for any self-proclaimed tea lover. We felt it only right to share the oolong love and introduce another popular variation in the form of milk oolong. Milk oolong in Chinese is “Nai Xiang” which means milk scent, so the namesake of milk oolong comes from its beautifully buttery, aroma. It tastes smooth and creamy – cast your mind back to those white milk bottle sweets you’d get in pick n mix – but is totally dairy free.

Louise the tea taster says

how does it taste?

Now, don’t let the milky name put you off, this traditional Chinese (dairy free!) tea has a natural, sweet butterscotch flavour to give a smooth and creamy taste - be brave and give it a try! 

good if you're feeling

In need of a sweet fix.

How we like it


Brew Time

  • tea temple - 1 per person. brew for 3 minutes, best with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the trick!)

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.

Good to know

sweet and creamy but not too much!

“Really tasty new tea; I've never tried Oolong before so this is very new to me! I was sceptical at first as the tea smells very vanilla-ish and sweet - I thought maybe it was going to taste artificial.

The tea does not taste artificial however, it goes down smoothly and is somewhere in between green and black. It leans more towards green on that scale. The aftertaste is slightly sweet, vanilla-y (hence a bit milky).

Give it a try, especially if you've never tried Oolong before and you like green teas!

(teapigs - if you could bring this back, that would be great! how about loose leaf milk oolong?)”
