This rare oolong tea from China’s Wuyi Mountains is velvety smooth and creamy, with a subtle hint of orchid. It’s said that it came about when the moon fell in love with a comet. The comet passed her by, as comets will do. The moon cried milky tears, which chilled the tea fields, withering the leaves and giving them a delicate creaminess. This milky oolong tea has been a rare luxury ever since.
