What is Milk Oolong Tea?
Also known as Jin Xuan tea, Oolong Milk tea is a more recently cultivated variety of oolong tea. Originating from Taiwan, Oolong Milk Tea tastes light, creamy, and buttery as a result of the oxidation level of the leaf. Tea drinkers compare the flavor to milk, hence giving it the name of Oolong Milk Tea or Milk Oolong.
The careful selection of high-grade leaves ensures that you get the perfect balance of flavor and aroma. Milk Oolong leaves then undergo a light roasting and rolling process. This brings out the natural creaminess of the tea, giving it a smooth and velvety texture.
The jin xuan cultivar from Taiwan's high mountains gives the tea a delicate creamy flavor and floral aroma. Our Oolong Milk tea derives its flavor solely from the natural nuances created during the processing of the tea leaves.
Some other lower-grade milk teas rely on aromatization of artificial "milk flavorings". Aromatization means flavor has been sprayed on the oolong tea leaves often done to mask low-quality loose leaf tea leaves. This makes it simply a flavored tea instead of an authentic Jin Xuan oolong.
Does Milk Tea have Caffeine?
Oolong Milk Tea is made from leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, just like green tea and black tea. The caffeine level in Oolong Milk Tea falls somewhere in between the two.
A cup of brewed tea has 38 mg of caffeine, while a cup of green tea has 29 mg of caffeine. Black tea in comparison contains about 47 mg of caffeine.
