Milk Oolong (Jin Xuan / Nai Xiang / #12)

Product information



Each sip of this oolong tea brings to mind buttery pastries and sweet custard. Milk Oolong is naturally rich and creamy without any dairy added. The 'milky' flavor comes from a process of withering the tea leaves overnight in a temperature controlled room that is cool but humid. The result is a tea unlike any other, with a silky mouth feel and notes of cream and honey. Milk Oolong tea leaves can be steeped multiple times and each brew will have a subtly different flavor profile.

Like a tea milkshake

I read about Milk Oolong tea in a tea magazine (the tea concierge had been quoted as saying milk oolong was a guest favorite) and went on an internet search to find some. I’m so glad I found this site and this tea. I am placing a second order and subscription since I gave most of it away already! I took some to a friend recovering from hip surgery and we had a nice little visit and tea party. Highly recommend this tea! It seems to be popular with everyone who tries it.

Most Delightful Milk Oolong

This is by far my favorite Milk Oolong out there. I have tried plenty, and this is the smoothest most delightful flavor of them all in my opinion. I've been drinking this since 2014. Thank you for creating such a beauty.


I found a sample of this in a store and it's so, so good! It's smooth, creamy, and fruity. I tried a different brand of milky oolong and it wasn't the same, so definitely splurge on this one!

Wonderful milk oolong

This was my first time, trying milk oolong, though I had heard good things about it. Whistling kettle did not disappoint! The tea has a distinctive and delicate flavor. It brews up beautifully. Highly recommended!


This was such a fun tea! It was creamy and a little sweet
