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 the first oolong I've tried, and hands down it's been the best. It's so incredibly delicious. So good. Ugh. Just my favorite tea that I've tried to date. Creamy, orchid-y goodness. Perfect.
This was my first milk oolong. Not going to lie, I was a bit skeptical at being able to taste a natural milk flavor... but wow. The creamy milky flavor is indisputable. mmmm^.^ Yes, this is a lovely, milky tea. There was a bit of floral and vegetal taste but it was only a shadow to the creamy buttery goodness. Halfway through the cup, I had to break out a bowl of Cheerios because the milky flavor was too good to resist. This tea is wonderful.
My very first milk oolong. It has a sweet, creamy flavour in addition to the lightly vegetal taste of the oolong. Very good.
this was a pleasant surprise. I bought milk oolong in a a local tea shop and it tasted like standard green tea with artificial milk added. but the tea from TeaVivre is a very fine buttery tea with orchid taste, very refreshing. it smells like milk, but the milk is not part of the taste. i always imagine it is a very good tea hiiden in a thin milky fog.
My first Milk oolong and am very please with it. The smell of the wet leaves is buttery and the flavor of the tea is buttery. The taste is a creamy vegetable taste, but not over powering. The third steep for me was the best one following the Gongfu way listed. It is very smooth and pleasing in the mouth.
Light Oolong tea with a buttery, creamy, and vegetal flavor. The creamy sweetness of the tea comes through at the end and tends to linger as the early grassy flavor fades.
If I was to pick one word to describe this tea then it would most definitely be creamy. This tea was actually the first oolong tea that I've tried and now I truly believe I'm hooked. If you're feeling ify about oolong the. Definitely give this tea a try!
The Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is creamy with the buttery smoothness of a good Oolong. There is also an orchid note that is usually present at the end of the sip, but in one or two steeps it was missing entirely. I do pick up more of the grassy flavor as the tea cools. I really like the grassy/milky combination. Very soothing.
The smell before the infusion is surely of milk, but when you drink it disappear. The taste is very soft with a gentle orchid note.
I received a free sample pack of this tea and brewed it all up in one go today. My general impression is that this is a bare bones, high quality light green oolong tea. That is good because I think it’s very easy to appreciate the round, almost creamy taste that is also easier to get right in comparison with green tea, with its risks of harsh or bitter notes. At times I got a sense of a really interesting milky taste and feel of this tea, but overall it was quite subtle. I very much prefer this subtlety in comparison with a flavored milk oolong tea though. I love to appreciate the beauty of the tea leaf itself in conjunction with the tea maker’s skill In producing these wonderfully tasty and interesting teas. Adding milk aroma, in my mind, impedes this feeling of appreciating the tea and its culture. What I miss with this tea is some more floral or sweet notes. I recently sampled Teavivre’s Superfine Taiwan Qing Xiang Dong Ding and Superfine Taiwan Ali Shan Oolong Tea, and those teas are just in another league. The base for this milk oolong is fairly similar and there is certainly a general light oolong feel to all these teas. However, where the other teas really shine is in the added flavors that come out, they have these wonderful floral and sweet aromas that leave me mesmerized. It’s an unfair comparison of course, seeing as this tea is much cheaper. Still, I can’t help but to miss those fantastic teas. Regardless, I’m sure to buy more of this as a really fine base light oolong tea, and I’m especially curious to use it for brewing ice tea in summer.

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.
