Sweet and Smooth and Utterly Delicious
I purchased this tea after reading all the positive reviews to see if it was as good as everyone claimed. It is. This tea is so delicious. It has a very mild and sweet flavor, yes and a 'milky' smoothness that so inviting and pleasant. No bitter after taste. Not high on caffeine, so you can drink it before bed and sleep just fine. The first cup I had, I heated up water in the microwave, not boiling, but just before. Then, I put the tea bag in the water. I like my tea strong so I left the tea bag in the cup the whole time I was drinking it (took about 15 minutes for me to finish my cup of tea) and it didn't get strong like I usually like my tea, but it was perfect right before bed. Just perfect. I didn't add honey, like I like, and it didn't need it at all. The only 'complaint' I would have is that the tea didn't get strong like I usually like. However, I imagine that if it were a strong tea the sweet, smooth flavor would suffer. And I would not change that at all.
This tea taste very much like jasmine tea, which I do not really like. But it smells great!
Amazing Smell and Taste
This tea is absolutely great; it smells like sweet red bean and has a nice mild flavour.
Very unique, light tea
It had an interesting description so I wanted to see how a tea actually tastes milky and fruity at the same time. I was really surprised at how accurate the description was! It has a light tropical fruit taste (like star fruit?) combined with a light green tea taste and then a light milky after taste. It's really strange and strange that there are no added flavors or fruits, but the combination works really well together. I used to drink a lot of the double matcha green tea, but now I prefer this tea as a daily tea, esp in the mornings when I just want something close to flavored water that's easy on my stomach.
Good Mild Tea
I enjoy this tea. It is not strong like some. I never add anything to my tea, unless lemon, but not in this tea, of course.
Lovely smooth tea
Mild with a smooth, light sweetness
The best tea. I cannot give it enough praise. It is delicious hot and ridiculously delicious iced. I give it five teapots because six are not offered. Enjoy this tea once and you will be hooked. Sort of like crack tea! Ed
Very enjoyable tea. Wonderful taste and fragrance.
I have always wanted to try oolong tea, but I couldn't find it. With its great rating, I couldn't help but order it. It was DELICIOUS and will definitely become a permanent part of my tea collection.
This is sweet and pleasant. Helps keep me away from the sugar people are always bringing into the office. This really is one of my favorite teas ever!
This tea is just as described! I am so glad you offer it in bags now, as I used to get it loose, and I'm really not a "loose" tea person. Its mildly sweet, gentle, soothing, and lovely. It has a very "special" feeling to it. I feel indulged when I drink it!
Milk Ollong Tea Bags
This tea is as described...smooth and silky. Adding a little honey makes it a decadent treat. I enjoy it anytime of the day.
Milk Oolong Tea
A light, smooth tea to enjoy sweetened with a little honey or plain.
Fragrant, Smooth Oolong
Republic's Milk Oolong is a wonderful tea. It is a smooth, fragrant, delicate oolong. If you've never tried oolong before, I would recommend this as a great starter. I will certainly order again.
This milk oolong tea is a delicate blend of flavors, a light creamy taste with a soft orchid note. A relaxing cup of tea that I'm head over heels in love with. I order it bulk 250 bags at a time. Whenever friends come over this is one of the first teas I offer them.
my new favorite
I bought this tea based on the ratings. I will continue to buy it based on its taste. Milk oolong is a mild, smooth tea with a hint of sweet. I haven't tried it cold yet; however, I love it hot with a touch of honey out even the Chai spiced honey.
That taste! Great Milk Oolong Tea!
I was looking for that original flavour of Milk Oolong Tea I tried long ago in China. This is it! It smells and tastes amazing!
Lovely, smooth oolong--very nice!
Milk Oolong Tea Is Very Soothing
The milk oolong tea is very soothing with delicate flavor. It is great by itself or with holiday foods.
Smooth and delicate - very enjoyable!
I have this with a little agave nectar and just a splash of milk. The taste is very pleasant and delicate and, with the milk, it's similar to drinking a latte.
Even the kids like this one!
This is smooth, and slightly fruity. Good for any time of day.
That was nice!
Delicious, soft but still Tea, refreshing, it was a nice experience after always being a Green Tea drinker.
Very refreshing and delicious!
I first ordered this tea out of curiosity, and because I liked the name! I was not expecting to get hooked on it. I drink it iced. The flavor on my tongue is so soft,subtle and delightful, really hard to describe; I'm not sure if pineapple and cream does it justice, but I can't improve on that. Really beautiful.
I love most kinds of tea, green, white and oolong as well a rooibos, this tea is very smooth and naturally sweet. I would even consider it a desert tea.
As a fan of black tea and stronger flavored teas in general this was an interesting change. It isn't so weak that you feel like you're drinking water, you know there's tea and you can taste the subtle, sweet notes if you sip instead of gulp. It's definitely a good tea for unwinding while reading a book or doing something relaxing because its flavor will not distract you, will not linger harshly on the palate as some teas can. It's worth a try!
an amazing tea
I'm generally not fond of scented, flavored teas - I'm a black tea with milk and sugar person - but this tea is so good I just can't resist it. I tried it for the first time in the spring of 2012, and I've been drinking it steadily since then. I plan to include a bag or 5 in all of my holiday gifts this year as well - *everyone* should know how lovely this tea is.
This is one of my favorite teas. It is light and creamy - I use a packet of Truvia in it and it tastes delish!
This tea has a beautiful, light taste without being too light (like white tea or green tea). So if you're not sure about trying it because you're not really into the weaker tasting teas, TRY IT--YOU WON'T REGRET IT! Don't let the idea of a 'light' taste fool you; this tea has a beautiful creamy/pineappley flavor that is so pleasing and magnificent. The pineapple and cream flavor is not hidden at all, it's perfect--not artificial tasting or overpowering! It's perfect any time of the day or night for any occasion. It's also wonderful hot or cold! My boyfriend and I have fallen in love with this tea! It's a special treat different from our normal green and red rooibos!
I usually only like hebarl teas but when I read about all the wonderful health benefits of this oolong' tea, I had to try it! I've never been a fan of green tea or black tea and since oolong tea is similar to both, I don't know why I'd thought I'd like it. It's good for you, I won't deny that but I just don't care for the taste. I felt like I was forcing down medicine when I would drink it and not even honey could save this tea for me! If you don't like black or green tea, I would not suggest buying this tea, however if you love them, go for it!
wonderful taste and smell
This tea is my very favorite for any time of the day. It is soft and sweet and provokes the ideal of complete relaxation. Is a wonderful desert tea and for tea time in the afternoon. Just ordered a huge bag so I am never without.
Absolutely Delicious : ))
Hot or cold, you can't go wrong. Great mixed with frozen fruit (pureed) ice cubes on a hot day. Best Oolong tea flavor, ever :)) Simple and sweet.
Simply put... delicious.
I must agree with everyone else-- this is soothing and delightful, and a lovely departure from the everyday. Lightly sweeten to taste, and that way you get a better sense of the creamy/pineapple-y notes. This is one I will gladly purchase again.
So often, products fail to live up to their ad copy. I can happily report that such is NOT the case with this Milk Oolong. Light of color and rich-yet-mild, it was an all new flavor experience that I will cherish over and over. The floral notes are exquisitely present and impart a wonderful sense of tranquility. Never before has a tea imparted such a regal sensation as this creamy infusion. Well done!
favorite thus far!
I've never tried any oolong tea before. This is by far my favorite of any of the teas I've tried here. I love the smokey, smooth flavor. Add a little honey and it just doesn't get any better.
I fell in love with the full leaf variety of this tea last summer. I am so glad it is in bag form now, because full leaf & my job do not mix, so now I can enjoy it at work, too. This really is the best Oolong I have ever tasted.
I love this tea
I've always been a devoted drinker of black tea, but I tried this one because it seemed so interesting. This is now my favorite tea. I love the earthy but kind of fruity taste. I highly recommend even just a try of this delicious tea.
An excellent tea! As good as the best brewed leaf oolong I've ever had.
why tea bags
I know this is new, and I'm happy if teabags will help more people enjoy the flavor of this wonderful tea, which is truly my current favorite of the 20 or so RoT teas that I drink. However, part of the tea experience with Milk Oolong is seeing the little balls of rolled tea unfurl into big fresh green leaves in my teapot. That experience will be lost with teabags. But, if you are not a bulk tea drinker, try the teabags to get the opportunity to enjoy the truly unique wonderful flavor of Milk Oolong.
