Recommend Brewing Guide:
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.

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.

This was my first Milk Oolong.I was very excited to try it after reading all the reviews on this website. It lived up to its expectation! I loved the unusual flavour. It is a smooth tea with buttery, milky , fruity and floral notes. I brewed it western style and it was amazing to see the leaves unfurl. 5 star !
Very impressive taste for this price I have yet to find another Jin Xuan that can match it. You can literally smell the milky aroma from the steam of the tea, it has good body, easy to drink with little bitterness. There is also a interesting tanginess to it, probably due to that this Jin Xuan uses the whole twig + leaves together. Quite similar to Kukicha/Karigane where the japanese add sencha/gyokuro twigs to their leaves. The leaves on this Jin Xuan has little damage in the processing overall which justifies the low bitterness.
Like the natural milk flavor. Not bad for a Jin Xuan Milk Oolong tea.
It's a little sweet and mildly creamy tea. It's not very fragrant.
I LOVE this Milk Oolong! It is intoxicating to smell in all stages: the leaf and the tea. There is a surprising dark green vegetable aroma: think chard. Nice sweetness on the lips too. I also use it to make Kombucha.
I received it as a free sample. nothing to say just try it! thank you teavivre!
It is not bad, but not the best Jin xuan. Anyway, it has resonable price. If you want a daily tea, I recommend it.
Dry leaves have coconut, berries and butter notes. And after first few infusions it is possible to enjoy this smell with all above mentioned notes. Interesting buttter-berries-coconut combo!!! Recommended!
Floral, smooth taste. The creamy aroma is faint and not overpowering. Slightly bitter aftertaste.
Full review can be found on steepster. It’s good. It tastes like a Taiwanese oolong and has a creamy background flavor. The “green” oolong flavor (maybe vegetal is the right word?) is very present and strong in the beginning and as the leaves open up they release more sweetness. At $12.90/100g the price seems right for it to be a solid daily drinker!
Reply: For this Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea, it is Natural without adding any milk flavoring.
Reply: This Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea we selected is imported directly from Taiwan to Fujian, China. 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.
