A Spring picked tea with a naturally milky character

NOTE : We often get asked about 'milk' oolong and in doing so many people are referring to a tea that has actually been 'flavoured'.  At Comins we only deal in natural teas and the great news is that there is a natural tea that has a milky character and this is usually from the Jin Xuan cultivar.  You can read more about this tea on our blog >>
