Firepot Nomadic Tea’s Mingjian Milk Oolong is renowned for its decadently rich creamy sweet taste as well as the aura of myth and mystery surrounding this elusive tea. If you appreciate a touch of natural sweetness within a silky-smooth mouth-feel, you may enjoy this rare and extraordinary drink.
Traditionally a “Milk Oolong,” sometimes referred to as a Silk Oolong, originates from Taiwan. The tea is grown high in the mountains resulting in a deeply concentrated blend of scent and flavor. Mingjian Milk Oolong Tea was named after its birthplace and mysterious sweet yet buttery taste. Often people mistakenly assume that is produced using milk or cream, but the true secret is far more exotic.
Authentic Milk Oolong Tea is so rare because the tea must grow in a specific mountain location and the production process requires both precision and expertise. The tea makers follow an age-old tradition where they partially oxidize the leaves before gently roasting and rolling the leaves allowing the sophisticated and intense flavor to unfold. The result is a tea as exquisite as a flawless orchid with slightly flowery flavor notes.
