Angel's Comment:

Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea has unique natural milky taste due to its high mountain material.

Teavivre’s Jin Xuan Milk Tea is another kind of fine classic Taiwan Oolong. It belongs to a category of tea often called “Milk Oolong”. However, this Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is special and unique because its milky aroma is natural; it is not manually added milk when process as other milk teas.

The first three infusion of this tea will have slight milky scent, whereas this scent will gradually reduce for the next cups. 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 variety, where it is grown, and how the leaves are processed - there are no flavors added to this tea.

Mountainous geography allows monsoon climate and high mountain climate existing at the same time, thus tea trees here grow slowly than usual, producing tender leaves and mellow teas. With the acid soil, the unique environment breeds this unique tea.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for more than forty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers.

He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard. If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.

Therefore, the first priority is to strictly control product quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea leaves and regularly increase the number of tea factory which provides the healthy and natural tea beverage.

The History of Oolong Tea

Oolong tea was first developed during the early 1700's in the Fujian area of China. As a cross between non fermented green teas, and the fully fermented black teas, that combines the best of both in a single tea, Oolong teas quickly became popular all through eastern China and Taiwan. Nowadays Anxi is the biggest producing area of Oolong tea, with the representative Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea.

In the year 1855, Linfengchi removed Oolong tea trees from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian Province of China and traveled to DongDing, which is in Lugu, Taiwan. Once he arrived in Taiwan, he replanted the tea trees, beginning the history of the Dong Ding Oolong, one of Taiwan's most famous teas. During 1858, a British company at that time called Jardine Mantheson & Co. bought semi-finished Oolong tea from Taiwan, spreading it around the world.
