Different from our Unflavored Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea, this Flavored Jin Xuan Oolong Tea is produced by adding edible flavoring to accentuate the milk flavor. So the milk aroma of this Flavored Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is stronger. It is better for people who like strong milk fragrance.
This Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea we selected is imported directly from Taiwan to Fujian, China. This tea meets the most strictly European low pesticide residues standard for agricultural products. View Quality Safety Analyzing Report
The flavor used for this Flavored Jin Xuan Milk Tea is from Mane (Shanghai), the branch company of the famous Flavours and Fragrances company “Mane”, which is founded in 1871 in the Grasse area, France.
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.
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.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the tea was that the smell was sweet. It reminded me of strawberry candy, which confused me, since I was certain that I hadn't opened the strawberry flavored oolong tea. The tea leaves are nice and remind me of gunpowder tea. It isn't too strong, and I was able to re-steep it multiple times. I like the pronounced milk flavor. I didn't expect it to have such a deep flavor. I only had the sample, but I liked it the first time I drank it and even more after I re-steeped it. I will be buying this tea in the future.
The smell of the dry leaves is of sweet pineapple. I was actually surprised, it was not nearly as different from the smell of unflavored leaves as I thought it would be, just a lot stronger. The taste is far sweeter than unflavored milk oolongs though, definitely well-suited as a dessert tea. It makes my mouth curl from the sweetness, and is a bit hard to swallow, sort of like trying to eat large quantities of meringue off of a pie. The second steeping had far less flavoring that ended up letting some of the oolong’s natural grittiness through, and was far better, so I recommend resteeping after the first cup.
This is good. Really good. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s a pop of fruitiness followed by cream. The tea feels thick but not heavy, and it’s very smooth and silky. I’m surprised by how sweet this is, but at the same time it’s not too sweet which is good because it allows the buttery notes from the Oolong to be tasted. This was great from start to finish.
I’m starting to have black tea withdrawal symptoms but they are not severe enough to keep me from trying another non-black sample from Teavivre. Oolong is not my favorite but Teavivre always seems to make it interesting. When I opened the sample packet, a somewhat sweet and milky or malted aroma spewed forth. The green and yellow tea leaves had been rolled into tight little nodules. I steeped this blend for three minutes at 212 degrees. The brewed color was a light yellowish green. The flavor of this tea is rather sweet, malty, and tangy. There is also a light tea taste reminiscent of Teavivre’s green teas. I didn’t find any bitterness. A soft and sweet aftertaste was left on my tongue. I noticed, in the description of the tea, that it is recommended to use three to four teaspoons of tea per cup. I didn’t see that in time and scooped my usual one teaspoon per cup. I still thought the flavor was full and ample enough to enjoy. Oolong (any Oolong) wouldn’t be my morning beverage of choice, but I would really appreciate this one at the end of the work day or as part of my dinner dessert. This is yet another very nice tea from Teavivre. If Oolong is your preference, you will probably like this tea even more than I did!

Having enjoyed your unflavored variety, I thought I would give this flavored milk oolong a try. It brews up like a nice "green" oolong with a modest milky taste. I found its taste pleasing but was expecting the milk flavor to be more pronounced and last longer.
First steep is more like cream cheese frosting than milk. There is a lot of vegetal flavor coming through. Smooth and sweet. Second steep is less milky and more vegetal. Maybe like creamed veggies. :) The leaves expand like crazy, of course. Good old dependable green oolong. :) I think I might like the unflavored version more but this is something I’ll enjoy to the last drop anyways.

Light, fruity aromas with a clean, grassy body, this tea is very smooth and enjoyable. I will enjoy drinking this for the New Year and into the Spring.
Love, love, love this tea! It has an enchanting fragrance and a delicious taste. Nothing artificial about its flavor! It has been a success with all my friends and I have already gifted it. I loved it with a bit of sugar to accentuate its flowery milky taste.
I wished for an over-the-top artificial milky cream flavour and this sample did not deliver. However, if you adjust expectation for a green oolong with a milky fragrance or if you prefer a non-artificial taste, this is a great tea that has added milk flavour without tasting like milk candy. I love trying this blended with other teas to add an extra creamy oomph.
This is my first experience with milk oolong so I really did not know what to expect or write. The dry leaves were tight small balls of what I would discover to be large full leaves with a light oolong smell. The first steep went for 2:45 at 212 and produced a dark gold liquid. The tea is a smooth sweet milky taste with a mellow oolong backing. This is a really interesting tea but I am not sure exactly what to say about this one haha. I am not too much of a fan of flavored teas of any kinds but I think if I were in a mood for one, this would be one I would like.

Reply: The milk flavor is extracted from natural milk. The flavor is liquid which is sprayed on tea leaves at the rolling step.
