Winter 2022. Nantou. Flavored milk oolong tea.
This is a flavored Jin-Xuan (milk oolong) tea from Zhu Shan in the Nantou county tea district.
The township of Zhu Shan is a major producer of Taiwan's Jin-Xuan (milk oolong) tea, with approximately 400 hectares devoted to this varietal.
When Jin-Xuan tea leaves are lightly roasted during processing, they have a unique milk flavor which is called nai xiang or milk oolong.
Zhu Shan Jin-Xuan is flavored with a natural soy-based flavoring which gives this tea a more pronounced, pleasing milk flavor than occurs with roasting alone.
