Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
I could not find much information about the company on their website but there is a nice page on their web site that leads to many news articles about the company. You can find those articles by clicking this LINK.
I’ve known about and have tasted Adagio teas for a few years, to me they are one of the small companies that made it big, through hard work and allowing people like me the opportunity to review their teas and tell you all about them. Adagio works hard to make sure their company represents the tea market from tea leaf to last sip. I’m honored to share the reviews of their teas with you!

What the site has to say about their product:
Milk Oolong is a relatively new cultivar in the delicious world of Taiwanese teas and is prized for its inherent cream and butter notes. Lower quality versions have these notes enhanced through aromatization but the finest, true Milk Oolongs offer lightly roasted, rolled leaves that yield a light-bodied cup with sweet buttery texture and delicate floral aroma. Also called Jin Xuan or Golden Lily, it is ideal for multiple infusions and a dedicated Yixing teapot.
COSTS: $10.00 / 4 ounces
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Brewed: This oolong has a light brewed liquor.
Scent: A very light scent of grass/vegetal.
Flavor: A soft delicate brew, with vegetal notes, there is no aftertaste and a very slight bitter brew.
Sentiments: This is a tea that comes rolled and once brewed the leaves unwind to create the beautiful tea that it is. The hotter the water and the length of the brew time gives you time to create the exact depth at which you want your tea to taste. It’s a beautiful tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “9”.
Till next sip…
