Milk Oolong tea is a type of Taiwanese oolong tea that has a creamy and smooth flavor with a hint of milkiness. The unique flavor profile of Milk Oolong tea is achieved through a special processing technique.
Here are the steps to make Milk Oolong tea:
- Plucking: The tea leaves are carefully selected, plucked, and harvested.
- Withering: The tea leaves are spread out and left to wither for several hours. This helps to reduce the moisture content in the leaves and makes them more pliable.
- Rolling: The withered tea leaves are then rolled, which helps to break down the cell walls and release the natural juices and flavors.
- Oxidation: The rolled leaves are then allowed to undergo a partial oxidation process, which is what gives Oolong tea its unique flavor profile. For Milk Oolong tea, the oxidation is typically kept to a minimum.
- Fixation: The partially oxidized tea leaves are then heated, which stops the oxidation process and locks in the flavor and aroma.
- Shaping: The tea leaves are then shaped into small, tight balls.
- Baking: The shaped tea leaves are baked at a low temperature, which helps to enhance their flavor and aroma.
- Scenting: Finally, the tea leaves are lightly scented with a milk flavor. This is done by exposing the leaves to a milk-based solution for a short period of time, allowing them to absorb the milk flavor without overpowering the natural flavors of the tea.
Once the Milk Oolong tea is made, it can be steeped and enjoyed like any other tea. The flavor profile of Milk Oolong tea is delicate and complex, with a creamy texture and a sweet, floral aroma. You will find our Milk Oolong tea satisfying and enjoyable.
