From Tealux

Tealux is proud to present to you our Mi Xian Alishan Black tea from Taiwan. This is a rare find, and one of the newly developed Taiwanese tea strains that are only just finding their way onto the international market.

The expressive and adaptable Jin Xuan tea strand is the base of this tea, grown in the unique terroir of the Alishan mountain range in central Taiwan. Mi Xian Alishan Black tea is produced in a similar manner to the world-famous Beauty teas of Taiwan, bearing a trace of leafhoppers that add character and depth to the blend.

The characteristically creamy, velvety body of the Jin Xuan tea strain shines through in every sip, while thorough oxidation provides an exotic, fragrant fruitiness, topped off with wild honey and lightly citrussy notes. Well-rounded tones of wild cherry, lychee and pineapple finish off the flavor palate, in a truly unique brew that is sure to impress.

Welcome to day 6 of little terri’s Sipdown Extravaganza!
Last night I stayed up late & totally re-organized my tea collection, updated my tea database, & I must admit, it was pretty out of control, but it’s looking good now! I have all my black teas organized into boxes, based on the location where they were grown :)
Yes, Ms Theresa spearheaded the whole project, & when she’s on, she gets some stuff done.
My true tea total is 356 teas…whew! Now on with the Extravaganza!

My first sipdown of the day, #35 (355 now!) is from my most recent box from my tea sister Sil. BTW, I compiled all the leftovers from the several boxes she has sent into one box, with little separators, so that I can easily find black, puer, or whatever!

This is a typical Mi Xian, with the honey & coriander taste.
Thanks Sil!

Sil

The thought of all that organizing makes
Me shiver with glee

TastyBrew

I need to do to this badly. Someone tell my kids to start napping again so i can have a break in my day, ok?

Dexter

Can I borrow Ms. Theresa…. ?

K S

Do you count one serving samples in this number?

Terri HarpLady

Sil & TB…sigh…now to make it last!
Dex, you’d have to fly me to your house, & let me live there for awhile. Ms. Theresa is very unpredictable, usually sleeping somewhere in the left quarter of my brain. It takes a lot to get her moving, I’m starting to think that she responds best to sleep deprivation & lots of caffeine :D
KS, the answer is yes. Many of these are single serving samples from friends like you :) Just enough to try a tea & see if it’s worth buying, right?

Sil

dexter…let meeeeee do it! will work for tea! i LOVE organising things… haha

Dexter

:(( I live in the wrong part of the world. If I were closer I would let both of you come and “organize”, help yourself to “payment”.

Terri HarpLady

I’ll probably post FB pics tomorrow, maybe. I take boxes that the tea comes in, cut off the flaps, & use them as file dividers…at least on some boxes! Other boxes are just crammed full of tea packages, with a label on the front that says something like, “Fujian”. Of course, on one of my tea cupboards, the top shelf is white & green teas, the 2nd shelf is all oolongs, & the next 3 shelves are packed with Black teas.
Then there are the Sheng & Shou…sigh…they have a special shelf in the other tea cupboard (there are 2 in my office now), & additional storage in my bedroom that I won’t bother to photograph. My family doesn’t need to know about THAT.

K S

I really need to do this. My stuff is out of control organization wise. I have no idea how many I have. Probably 80% are 7g or less. Maybe after I do taxes. Of course my brain will be spent by then.

Terri HarpLady

Taxes…that’s on my agenda too…:p

Sil

OOOH i could start my taxes this weekend..not that i have everything i need yet..

This is another tea that dexter sent my way, and i’m glad she did as my first order from tealux i wasn’t all that impressed, though to be fair we ordered mostly flavoured teas. Their straight teas seem to be where it’s at though, given the few samples i’ve had since then. This one is no exception. While it’s not a blow your mind out of the water sort of tea, it’s a nice light black tea that i drank up and was finished before i’d really realised it. :) I’m not sure i’d order it again given it’s “averageness” but i would never turn my nose up at this one. It’s a good tea for people who are just getting in to black, i would think as it’s not astringent and it’s not that in your face sort of bold black. :)

This was my tea of choice at work for the last two days. I didn’t write a tasting note yesterday because I didn’t know what to day. I’m not sure if I’ve figured that out yet. This tea confuses me. Most of the straight blacks I’ve tried have been either: A> mild and astringent and I hated them or B> bold, malty, chocolatey and I really like it. This is somewhere in between.
The dry leaves smell like dried cherries. It’s a light black tea, but not astringent. There is not a hint of malt or chocolate. It’s just a nice light black tea. I don’t know how else to explain it. I didn’t get any fruity taste, I’m not sure what it tastes like other than black tea with out any of the usual notes that I get.
All in all I like it, but I don’t LOVE it. In general I’ve been happy with the Tealux straight teas that I’ve tried.
