Oolong de la Creme / Tea and Tins. . . .

Oolong de la Creme also known as Milk Oolong. In its truest form with no added flavors it is called Jin Xuan or #12.

It’s a pleasing tea for the palette with notes of milk and cream. It has a silky mouth feel and, if you get the right version, can even smell milky. If you buy a couple of different brands do a side y side aroma comparison.

One can generally tell which is higher quality simply by the smell as some of the lower quality leaves will have a somewhat mechanical smell to them.

While I’m not 100% sure of this version I do like the creamy wet leaf smell and the taste is pretty spot on.

Here’s the scoop!
