Oolong tea is a type of tea that traces its roots back to China. Today, it is commonly known as a Taiwanese tea as many of the best-tasting oolongs are cultivated in that nation. Brewing oolong tea is easy breezy and it's moderate flavor profile means it blends easily with other teas to elicit new flavors.
The flavor of oolong tea is somewhere in between green tea and black tea. This type of true tea is partially oxidized —anywhere from 8 to 80 percent oxidized — resulting in a wide range of flavor profiles. Some are airy and fruity while others are rich and nutty. The flavor options are endless, making oolong tea a great choice of experimenting in the kitchen. Here, we've put together our favorite oolong milk tea recipes from simple and basic to indulgent boba blends.
Basic oolong milk tea can be made using tea bags or loose leaf tea. Loose tea offers a better flavor as it contains the full tea leaves, which can expand to infuse flavor. Oolong tea bags typically contain ground-up fragments of tea leaves and don't offer as much flavor or as many quality health benefits. In this recipe, we've used Milk Oolong Tea, a tea blend that doesn't contain any milk but offers a rich, creamy body and luxurious flavor. It has a buttery flavor and creaminess that is perfect for a simple cup of tea.
