Light Roasted Jin Xuan Oolong Tea, Lot 203
The name Jin Xuan refers to a specific tea varietal developed by the Taiwan Research and Experiment Station which is the national research centre dedicated to the improvement of the tea industry of Taiwan.
Jin Xuan teas are satisfying teas to drink as they offer good amplitude in texture and taste. With mild floral notes, they have the greatest potential for sweetness with hints of exotic fruit. Teas elaborated with Jin Xuan leaves has a particularly creamy texture with a distinctive milky smoothness and sweetness.
They fare particularly well when roasted by experienced tea masters which brings out the candied sweetness and spiciness with creamy smoothness. Our fresh new Spring 2013 selection is a good example of such tea while yet retaining floral notes and good vegetal presence.
