Floral and the light creamy note with a silky mouthfeel, so it is sometimes known as “milky oolong”. This tea originates from Taiwan, and the best quality is from Alishan.
It has a very distinctive osmanthus aroma and light sugary note that you can’t find in other types of oolong. You won’t smell the strong milky scent like other “milk oolong” in the tea market.
The milk and aromatic taste of this tea only release after the first infusion.

The tea was first cultivated in the 1980s which is one of the most well-known cultivars in Taiwan. But the best quality of this cultivar is grown in Alishan (Ali Mountain) because of its exceptional weather condition, the soil and the craftsmanship of our collaborate tea masters.
Milky oolong is everywhere, right?
We encourage you to buy the “milky oolong” in your local tea shop (but I have to presume you are not living in Taiwan) before you try our Silk Dancer. You can expect the rich in milky scent when you smell the dry tea leaf, maybe it will also taste like milk tea.
I couldn’t taste the “milky part” when I first tried this tea. But that taste popped out when I tried other types of tea (like Qing-xing oolong). I soon enjoy the smooth milky taste after a few sips, hope you will also discover the same taste when you try this tea.
Basic Profile: Peachy sweet and a bit nutty honey aroma. thick mouthfeel, a hint of sweet but refreshing fruity taste.
