Grown in the Alishan region of Taiwan, this year’s Jin Xuan is baked, toasty and light to medium bodied. Jin Xuan oolongs are often referred to as “milk oolongs” due to the distinct milky flavor of the Jin Xuan (or Golden Lily) cultivar. Leaves are hand-plucked and tightly rolled and roasted, which brings out the warm milk notes of the leaf.
Ingredients: Oolong Tea Leaves.
Very pleasant and milky with a light, roasted grain sweetness.
