The creamy milk flavor of this oolong is due to a special processing method that is applied: Milk flavors are roasted together with the fresh leaves. That's why you will even taste the creaminess up to the fifth brew.

What are the health benefits of drinking Ali Shan Milky Oolong Tea?

Health benefits of Ali Shan Milk Oolong include: better skin condition, healthy teeth and a stronger immune system. Researchers found that drinking oolong tea long each day helps to clear up skin problems within one month. A study showed that regular consumption of oolong tea strengthens teeth and helps prevent tooth decay by inhibiting the build-up of plaque. Try our milk oolong and you will see that it has very little astringency and an abundance of natural sweetness. This oolong tea has been given a very light roasting, which enhances the milk fragrance “奶香” (“nai xiang”) of the tea.

How to steep Ali Shan Milky Oolong?

Which region is Ali Shan Milky Oolong from?

The Ali Shan Milky Oolong is native to Taiwan.  Taiwan, named by the Dutch traders as “Formosa”, meaning “beautiful island”, remains as the only region in the world that produces the tea. The special “Jinxuan” Oolong growing in Ali Shan (Ali Mountain) comes with a unique natural milk flavor, due to the soil condition and production method. This scent has been enhanced with adding additional milk flavor during the frying process.

While this isn't the best Milk Oolong I've ever had it's great for the price. You definitely get the creamy floral taste that you're supposed to get. If you just want to try it out or want a milk oolong in your collection without paying too much, this is the way to go. (Posted on 11/23/2015)

I hear people talk of teas with intricate aromas and almost candy-like taste, yet when I brewed my first pot of this oolong I understood their descriptions. This tea immediately reminded me of butterscotch in taste, with a lovely sweet aroma and intense flavour. A new favourite for me! (Posted on 6/3/2014)

It's a unique style of oolong for sure. I am a fan! Alishan is a famous mountain in Taiwan and I never disappoints when I tried the tea from that region. I will recommend and placing my second order now. (Posted on 3/26/2014)

I love smelling this tea - from the packet and from the cup. It reminds me of tea that I tried many years ago in Taiwan, and it is a very pleasant memory. I am glad to have found this tea again. (Posted on 9/11/2013)

Tried the milky oolong tea. Upon opening of the package, you'll be positively surprised by a pleasant, intense milky scent. The milky flavour doesn't mean it's an ordinary oolong tea combined with milk: once brewed, the milky scent fades away and the delicate flavours of the oolong tea comes up. Have indeed refilled my cup a couple of times and still taste the tea. Will buy again. (Posted on 3/12/2013)
