Jin Xuan is a special variety of Camellia Sinesis (tea plant) developed through research at the Taiwan Tea Agricultural Research center. This special variety is known for producing Oolong with a unique spring floral fragrance and a creaminess undertone, which makes it exceptionally popular. Alishan Jin Xuan Oolong brings one of the great locations for growing Oolong tea together with one of the special Oolong varieties, Jin Xuan. The loosely balled leaves unfurl to yield a highly aromatic, smooth and mellow light-bodied infusion with sweet cream and floral notes. The creamy notes in this tea are a result of the tea varietals, where it is grown, and how the leaves are processed - there are no flavors added to this tea.
The substance in the tea helps to prevent the decaying of teeth and halting the plaque build-up and also reduce the growth of glucosyltransferase. Polyphenolic compounds in Jin Xuan Oolong can prevent overall oxidise, and Purine alkaloids have the function of clear free radicals, so that it can have effect of preventing aging.
Jin Xuan oolong tea was developed in the 1980s and has white specks in the leaves. The leaves of Alishan Jin Xuan Oolong Tea are grown in the famous A-Li Mountains in Taiwan. At the elevation of 1000 to 1600 meters, the mountainsides are covered with fog or clouds which are ideal for growing Oolong.
In 1950 the Taiwan scholar Wu Zhenyi cultivated the Jin Xuan cultivar by using the “No.8 Tai Nong”and “Ying Zhi Hong Xin” tea tree variety. During the following 30 years, Wu Zhenyi choose the best Jin Xuan cultivar by many tests and was later named “No.12 Tai Cha”. In 1981 the Jin Xuan Tea was formally extended. As it is good source for producing best Taiwan teas, it caught many tea farmers’ attention and make it widely planted.

Really nice unflavoured milk oolong. A greener oolong flavour with creamy notes. Didn't get any bitterness.
Good tea. Soft taste, isn't present bitterness. Natural without fragrances. My tea number 1.
This is my first milk oolong. I’ve tried black milk teas before, but this is almost entirely different. While in black teas with milk flavoring, I felt like the milk was there to soften the bitterness of it… but with this oolong, there is no bitterness or harshness to hide. It’s only there to add a subtle creaminess.
Last night, I made it hot, and enjoyed it greatly. I decided to have it again as my take-to-work tea, over ice since it was already in the 90’s when I left. It was wonderful iced. The Teavivre oolongs I’ve tried before were on the floral side, but this one is fruity! The flavor reminds me of peaches! It’s like a light peaches and cream oolong! I absolutely love it. Best oolong I’ve ever tried; will order.

This tea was simply delicious. I had never tried a milk oolong before. I found this tea to be smooth and creamy and delicate. The first three infusions were very milky and light and the last was more vegetal and almost fruity. I will definitely order more.
Such a lovely, mellow tea. The flavors are light and creamy with some grassy notes. Will definitely order again!
It is tea I order all the time. great taste. I advise all lovers of tea.
My first milk oolong. Pretty good, a nice creamy, milky smell and a mild, grassy taste. It's always fun to watch the leaves open up too.
No sign of any bitterness. This is a pleasant tea to drink.
I forgot to put this in my last order and came to regret it. Thankfully I remembered this time. Smells wonderful, tastes wonderful. You should try it.
I think this is my favorite oolong.
I love the milky scent. I brewed it gaiwan style, and the flavor stayed strong, although after the fourth cup the milkiness faded and it became slightly more bitter. I will probably buy this again this fall.
Free sample generously provided to me by Teavivre. Thanks so much! From what I’ve tried of oolongs so far, my favorites are the milk oolong and dan cong varietals – so I was really excited to give this tea a try!
Preparation notes: 2 of the 4 enclosed red packets in 500 ml. water in my Breville at the below parameters.
Dry leaf: The dry leaf is typical of milk oolongs I’ve seen – small, tightly rolled dark green leaves that give off a grassy smell with a slight creamy hint.
Steeped tea: The steeped liquor is a greenish yellow with a predominantly creamy scent and underlying grass notes. A slight floral aroma seems to become more evident as it cools.
The tea itself is quite smooth – I don’t pick up on any bitterness. I feel like I’m getting hints of milk or caramel towards the beginning of the sip before it fades into more of a green, buttery taste (with some floral accents) typical of a ti kwan yin. Towards the end of the cup I did notice that it seemed to be drying out my mouth, but this wasn’t unpleasant, just something I picked up on.
This is yet another solid offering from Teavivre – while it’s not my favorite milk oolong, it is still very good and an affordable option for what can be a pricey tea.

It is only one hour from Taiwan to Fujian, after the tea was imported, it was sent to The Tea Research Institute Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences Quality Safety Analyzing lab of Agricultural Product to Analyze. So it shows the report is from China.
