  • Full Description

    Discover the jewel of the Taiwanese Oolong tea gardens. Milk Oolong tea is grown high in the mountains and goes through an age-old process, where it is lightly oxidised to optimise its smooth, sweet and buttery notes. It’s then hand-rolled into small ball shapes, and these completely unfurl when mixed with water to reveal the whole leaf, the sign of a high-quality oolong tea.

NO.880

NUMEROLOGY

We’ve given our Milk Oolong the number 880, a nod to the bygone days of the 1880s when milk was delivered four times a day by horse-drawn carts. British milk bottles were first produced in 1880, and featured a stylish porcelain stopper – the very same bottles Walter Whittard would have found on his doorstep each morning…

TAIWAN

Taiwan has only been producing tea since the mid-17th century, but it's already become world-famous for its extraordinarily complex oolongs – from sweet and buttery varieties grown at high altitudes to darkly roasted oolongs with a robust, nutty taste.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
