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.

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.

Received in 2012 as a free sample; steeped up sometime in 2012. I don't remember much about this as it's been almost a year since I first brewed it, but I do remember liking the flavor and the aroma.
Taste: Nice and creamy, and a bit vegetal with that buttery smoothness of oolong. Resteep 3 minutes: losing a bit of that creaminess but still a good cuppa Cold: a different kind of creamy, but refreshing all the same
Many thanks to Teavivre for the free sample! I’m still a bit messed up from jet lag, so this will be shorter than usual. This tea is nice, fairly typical of Taiwanese Oolongs, but it lacks anything truly unique to make it stand out. It’s not very flowery or fruity, the aftertaste lingers, but only for about 45 seconds. The only things that stands out is how creamy it tastes, but that isn’t really interesting. Don’t get me wrongs, it’s still good, it’s just that I’m a bit spoiled but some of my other teas, and this just doesn’t measure up.

A tea with a milky aroma, smooth, sweet taste, and thick, buttery mouthfeel. Quite nice.
This is (or was) my last unopened sample from this round of Teavivre teas. I think I may have a new favorite. I love this! The dry leaf smells of Honey Nut Cheerios. The cup tastes of warm buttery milk, and cereal. Sweet and grainy with a touch of vanilla. Also, there is a bit of salt, smoke, and hay. It has a light non-offensive bitterness. Like the other Taiwan oolongs I have had lately, I am getting a neat cooling sensation on my breath. I could enjoy this cup without additives. You all know that rarely (never!) happens. I added Splenda to see if it improved the taste. It accentuated the flavor and diminished the light bitterness. I Love this! And you didn’t think I could write a one paragraph review of a new tea ;) This review was originally published on Steepster by K S on June, 2012.

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