Golden Buds Milk Oolong
This Taiwanese Oolong has a unique and luscious natural “peaches and cream” aroma and flavor. Fragrant, full bodied, and sweet. One of our favorites to drink hot or cold.
This tea comes from the Jin Xuan cultivar, which loosely translates to “Golden Lily” and is known for its distinctly creamy flavor without having anything added to it. These teas are sometimes called “True Cream” Oolongs.
Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. (or 2-3 grams) of leaves per 6 oz. of water; heat fresh water to about 195ºF (bring to rolling boil, then rest for 30 seconds before steeping); steep for 3 minutes.
Or: Use 1 gram of leaves per 1 ounce of water in a or gaiwan or small covered vessel; heat fresh water to about 195ºF; steep for 30 seconds. Add 30 seconds per extra steeping. Good for several infusions.
