Oolong Milk Tea is a type of Chinese Flavoured Oolong Tea. This is where Tea leaves undergo semi-oxidation and a relatively short period of fermentation to create an infusion “in-between” Green and Black Tea.
What makes it all the more unique is the fact that it is briefly heated in milk water steam. The result is a flavour best described as sweet, rich, creamy and indulgent.
What is Milk Oolong Tea?
There are several areas of confusion surrounding the question, “What is Oolong Milk Tea?” Some sources say that, despite the name, Oolong Milk Tea ingredients do not in any instance include milk.
Others, including us, argue that it should and it does. Such is the case, unquestionably, here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. It’s worth noting, too, that we pack it fresh to order.
How is Milk Oolong Tea Made?
Milk Oolong Loose Leaf Tea, similar to almost all types of Tea, flavoured or unflavoured, comes about through processing at a factory. This involves changing its chemical structure, which, when it comes to Oolong, in particular, can vary from 8% oxidation to 80% oxidation.
Workers creating our Milk Oolong then need to heat the leaves in milk water steam for the desired effect.
Is Milk Oolong Tea Vegan?
The vast majority of our products - from Loose Tea to Fruit Tisanes to Fresh Coffee - are suitable for vegans and vegetarians alike. An exception to the rule is Oolong Milk Tea, which vegans should avoid due to the production methods applied to it.
Try not to worry too much, however, as The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has countless alternatives - each as delicious as the last.
