Oolongs are wonderfully versatile when it comes to flavor. They can be floral, vegetal, fruity, honeyed – or, in this case, milky. It sounds like a weird combination, but it’s actually not so far-fetched. Find out why in my review of Teasenz’s Ali Shan Milky Oolong at A Bibliophile’s Reverie.
Also, I’ll be “off the grid” for the Thanksgiving holiday. I should be back on social media either Sunday or Monday, and my next blog post will go live on Monday as well. Until then, have a good rest of your week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
Awwww, we’re down to our final Teasenz sample! I’ve really enjoyed trying this Chinese vendor’s selections over the past year. Each has been of superb quality, to the point that I know I’ll be a customer in the future. 😉

This particular kind of tea is grown only in Taiwan, in the country’s Ali Shan Mountain region.

Read on to find out how these qualities manifest once Ali Shan Milky Oolong is brewed.

Ooo! This sounds SO good. My experience with oolong is pretty limited, but I love cream teas. I’ll have to give this one a try!
Transliterated Chinese does sounds a little funny, so I just pronounce the Chinese words in my head XD This tea is super famous — although I haven’t had the opportunity to try! I’ve tried loads of oolong, but not a huge fan really … but I think this one may change my mind ;D
