Organic Red Milk Oolong is produced in northern Thailand from specially imported “Golden Lily” Jin Xuan tea plants from the Taiwanese highlands. Dark green, finely rolled leaf unfolds a flavorful, dense, cup that is both fruity, lightly roasted, milky and flowery with a long sweet aftertaste that lingers nicely. All aromas and flavors are authentic and typical of the Jin Xuan cultivar, the difference between the Red Milk oolong and the Milk Oolong is that the Red Milk underwent greater oxidation and a light final roast. This tea should not be confused with the aromatized “Milk Oolong” version that is commercially available throughout the world. To distinguish the difference between natural and aromatized tea one may smell the dry leaves. If they are overly perfumed, chances are it is aromatized.

Excelente Dong Ding tea coming from the authentic Dong Ding mountain plateau at 750m.
