Naivetea Golden Lily Oolong
I’ve never had a tea quite like this and I struggled to describe it. It was quite milky tasting and had a thicker mouth feel than I had ever experienced in an oolong. Naivetea describes it as having a hint of pineapple. That is the closest I could come to a description for the flavor. This tea definitely stood up to multiple steepings. I completed seven before I could drink no more. I was very excited to try this selection because it is my first foray into the seemingly trendy world of “milk” oolongs. There is a lot of misinformation circulating the web about these teas. A true milk oolong does not have anything needed, it is the altitude and processing methods that produce the unique milky flavor. Needless to say I was not disappointed and would definitely recommend this tea.
