Winter 2021. Alishan. Pleasingly complex milk oolong tea.

Winter 2021

This is a Jin-Xuan milk oolong tea from Rui-Feng in the Alishan tea district.

The Rui-Feng tea district is off the main path in the northwest section of Alishan. It was approved as a leisure agricultural area by Taiwan's Council of Agriculture. It is a peaceful area that is popular with visitors.

When Jin-Xuan tea leaves are lightly roasted during processing, they have a unique milk flavor which is called nai xiang or milk oolong.

Rui-Feng Jin Xuan has a slightly astringent flavor which mellows with subsequent brewings. The milk flavor is evident in the aftertaste, and combines with a pleasing herbaceous aroma for a complex flavor which changes slightly with each brewing.
