Quangzhou Milk Oolong

Flavor Profile: Imagine if velvet took liquid form and was blended with a sweet, light cream. While drinking, you find yourself swimming to the bottom of a deep well of orchids. An amazingly profound tea.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.

Brewing instructions: Bring water to 80ºC/176ºF. Use 1tsp of loose tea per cup. Rinse the tea briefly with hot water, discard water, then Steep 2-3 minutes in fresh hot water.

The stories of this tea naturally centre on its wonderful milky flavor, which interestingly, is the result of a sudden shift in temperature during harvest - a rare occurrence to say the least. One of the many legends explains that the first time this shift occurred was centuries ago when the moon fell in love with a comet passing through the night sky. The comet, as all comets are wont to do, passed by, burned out and vanished. The moon, in her sorrow caused a great wind to blow through the hills and valleys bringing about a quick drop in temperature. The next morning, local tea pluckers went out to collect their fresh leaf. To their surprise, when the tea was processed it had developed an amazing milky character, which was attributed to the motherly character of the old moon.
