The distinctive taste of oolong tea is created through a process of partial oxidation, producing an infusion with slightly more body than a green tea though still significantly lighter than a black tea. Depending on different processing techniques, oolongs range from rich and deeply roasted to the fresh floral flavours often associated with high-grown oolongs.
Our aromatic loose leaf Milk Oolong is of the latter variety: it's floral without being florid, with a balanced sweetness and a thick creamy body. We'd suggest brewing lightly to enjoy its wonderful layers of flavour.

What’s the story behind this year’s celebration?
The Chinese zodiac cycle repeats every 12 years, with an animal assigned to each year. The 12 zodiac signs are in order, the second of which is the Ox. Legend has it that the order was determined by the Jade Emperor who wanted to appoint 12 animals as palace guards.
