Spring 2023. Alishan. Smooth flavor and buttery texture.
This is a Jin-Xuan milk oolong tea from Tai-Xing in the Alishan tea district.
The Tai-Xing tea area is located in Meishan Township, Chiayi County. It is one of the top tea areas of Alishan, producing both Qingxin (green heart) and Jin-Xuan (milk oolong) tea.
When Jin-Xuan tea leaves are lightly roasted during processing, they have a unique milk flavor which is called nai xiang or milk oolong.
Tai-Xing Jin Xuan has a pleasing, smooth flavor with a buttery aftertaste. There is a slight astringency apparent when first sipped, which mellows into a very nice, full sensation on the back of the tongue.
