Spring 2018

This is a Jin-Xuan milk oolong tea from Tai-Xing in the Alishan tea district.

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.

A round, sweet honey/butter flavor - not overpoweringly "milk" flavored, but a nice green, evolving flavor oolong of the sort I love.

this is the 2nd jin xuan sample i tasted, after zhu shan jin xuan. in my opinion, this is a great oolong tea, with an elegant taste and the milky note is obviously more delicate than in zhu shan because this one is unflavoured. indeed, the milky note didn't faded after the first steepings (as i noticed in the flavoured quality) but remained unaltered. i loved particularly the first and second cup (30 sec steeping)and i noticed an intense honey and flowery taste, together with a herbal note that faded in the following steepings. i used the leaves 5 times and the tea was still superb. whole branchlets with good looking dark green aromatic leaves. i tried also a 1 minute steeping but it was too much for my taste and it felt slightly bitter. in my opinion, this is a delicate wonderful tea, that gives its best in a very short steeping time.

I like the Rui-Feng slightly better than the Tai Xing just because I like peachy flavors better than honey flavors. Although, the Tai Xing is quite a balanced and smooth liquid with reminiscent of mixture of flowers. It is sweet, rich, creamy and delicious!

Nice and tasty tea, buttery and without too much of a milky taste, more natural feeling.

The dry leaves here smell like SPINACH. I don’t mind it.. I eat enough of it! The steep color is a bright yellow. I let the water cool for quite a bit and steeped for 45 seconds. The taste is lovely! The flavor maintains a bit of that spinach flavor, but I’d say the dry leaves smelled more like spinach than the tea itself tastes like spinach. But it’s like spinach that is buttery and slightly sweet and also a tiny-tad-hint of spice, very silky… it really lingers. I’d say this oolong has more of a vegetal flavor that the usual floral. But oh no! I just looked at the description and this was the tea that was the milk oolong. I had David’s milk oolong a few weeks ago and this definitely doesn’t taste like that one. The David’s was distinctly milky. This one is just buttery and sweet. I never would have even considered it was the milk oolong if I hadn’t looked at the description! Second steep: Water was still cooled down a lot // steeped for 50 seconds. This cup is MUCH more like a f
