Some say oolong tea aids weight loss. We just say it tastes great with a smooth, creamy and sweet finish. Great for satisfying a craving for something naughty.

I’ve enjoyed most of the Milk Oolong teas that I’ve tried, but not all are created equal. Some tend to be too creamy and sweet to the point of being cloying, and tasting somewhat artificial.
This Milk Oolong from The Rabbit Hole, however, does not. This is a very good Milk Oolong. Yes, it’s sweet, and it’s creamy, but it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. There is a lightness to it that makes the creaminess taste natural and not contrived. It is incredibly smooth and sweet without tasting too sweet.
The aroma of the dry leaf is vegetal, reminding me of the smell of a fresh produce stand in the summer. That smell of leafy greens and ripe vegetables. It is fresh and lively.
That vegetal tone is in the flavor too, although it isn’t overly vegetative or grassy. These flavors meld with the creamy milk tones to provide a slight “creamed vegetable” kind of flavor with just a hint of butter in the mix.
A lovely Oolong from one of our favorite companies here at SororiTea Sisters: The Rabbit Hole!
