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.
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.

* Required Fields
Interesting, but not the milk oolong I was looking for. This oolong has a candy quality to it. The smell of the bag is like opening a bag of sweet treats, and the taste is mainly hard candy, with a hint of warm milk that fades very quickly. I like the milk oolongs that give away subtle aromas of recently boiled, warm milk, and when you taste them there is this fruity, creamy taste that lets you wanting more. This is a nice tea, yet overwhelming after a few sips if you're not a candy person. Like eating candy, first bites are quite enjoyable, but after that is too much sweetness.
This is a really fragrant tea, but it smells delicious! I was worried that the taste would be overwhelming since it had added flavor, but I was pleasantly surprised when the creamy flavor was subtle. The first steep left me with something desired, but the second steep was perfect.
So this came with the flavored sample set that I mostly wanted to try the jasmine teas contained within. This is the oolong with the added flavoring, rather than the unflavored Jin Xuan oolong. Upon opening the pouch, there is mostly certainly a candy sweet fragrance! With the unflavored Jin Xuan, I can't really taste much of the qualities that make it a milk oolong. That sweet flavor makes itself known mostly in the first steep, slowly fading after that. The leaves are very dark green. The leaves unravel very fast, already filling the infuser with the first steep. I used an entire sample pouch (two teaspoons) but it seems like the flavor was stronger than necessary with each steep (even with one minute steeps). So I'd also recommend trying this tea with one teaspoon or one and a half teaspoons and/or with lower temperatures. I didn't ruin the flavor too much, but I know it could have been better with proper parameters. Otherwise, the flavor is milky and candy sweet with hints of butter and some type of fruit - possibly pineapple. This oolong is alright, but I know that Teavivre has better options. Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons // few minutes after boiling // rinse // 1 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 1 min Steep #3 // 3 minutes after boiling // 1 min Harvest: 2014
Reading the reviews, I was expecting much stronger flavor (and that's why I hesitated to order this tea in the first place - I don't like too much added fragrance). But it turned out to be very good. The flavor is tender, with a very light touch of milk that enhances aroma of oolong itself. It's not sweet to me, but rather creamy. Will definitely reorder.
Great after taste flavor.
Don't have much experience with milk oolong, but I'm really liking the taste of this one! The dry leaf and the first steep smells and tastes quite milky and creamy, also some sweetness and floral notes. I enjoyed the second steep much more, where the milk flavor is much more subtle and the base of the oolong really comes through.
I like the after taste of this tea. It is very fragrant
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.
Reply: The milk flavor is extracted from natural milk. The flavor is liquid which is sprayed on tea leaves at the rolling step.
