Different from our Unflavored Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea, this Flavored Jin Xuan Oolong Tea is produced by adding edible flavoring to accentuate the milk flavor. So the milk aroma of this Flavored Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is stronger. It is better for people who like strong milk fragrance.

This Jin Xuan Milk Oolong Tea we selected is imported directly from Taiwan to Fujian, China. This tea meets the most strictly European low pesticide residues standard for agricultural products.

The flavor used for this Flavored Jin Xuan Milk Tea is from Mane (Shanghai), the branch company of the famous Flavours and Fragrances company “Mane”, which is founded in 1871 in the Grasse area, France.

Oh happy day! Found one more sample packet than I thought I had of this. (This happens to me a lot, due to general absent-mindedness, but it never loses its thrill.) More milky-buttery-perfectly-balanced-against-the-oolong for me.

From reviews I’ve read, it sounds like some people object to having flavoring in their milk oolongs — and I admit, if you were expecting the unflavored kind, this one might come as a bit of a shock — but I’m no purist. Flavoring is fine by me, as long as it doesn’t taste like chemicals. This is a very natural flavoring.

I’d love to compare it to David’s milk oolong, but I am reluctant to buy a whole 50 grams of it, and I’m nowhere near a store. I know the David’s order form isn’t set up to request specific samples, but has anyone tried requesting them in the comments section of the form? They always send 3 samples with the order anyway, so I’d just as soon get the things I’m really curious about.

A huge thanks to Angel at Teavivre for this generous sample!

This is the flavored version of the milk oolong. I have had a few flavored milk oolongs and every time I drink them I wonder what the actual flavor is because nothing about the milky creaminess seems to be actually enhanced relative to regular milk oolongs. I wonder if the flavored milk oolong are a regular green oolong with milk flavor and the milk oolong are a oolong picked at the right time to be a milk oolong? I need to do some reading and educate myself on the difference.

I get the buttery, I get the creamy, I get the sweetness out of this version. I also get a strong green oolong vegetal taste. I do not get the bitterness that I seem to associate with Jin Xuan. This is a very decent cup. Comparatively I am not sure I can compare to the other two unflavored oolongs, but since it is flavored this would probably be my last pick between the 3. When I place my order with Teavivre I will definitely try the unflavored to compare. Thank you again for allowing me to try this tea!

Hey Tiff – I have a couple of samples of the Zhi milk oolong, Golden Lily. I would be happy to send you if you would like to try it.

This Flavored Jin Xuan Oolong Tea is produced by adding edible flavoring to accentuate the milk flavor. So the milk aroma of this Flavored Taiwan Jin Xuan Milk Oolong is stronger. It is better for people who like strong milk fragrance. However, the unflavored is special and unique because its milky aroma is natural, it is not manually added milk when process as other milk teas.

From the Here’s Hoping Traveling Tea Box #2

I have wanted to try a Milk Oolong for a while now, so when I saw that this and the unflavored Jin Xuan were in the tea box I was excited.

This is good. Really good. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s a pop of fruitiness followed by cream. The tea feels thick but not heavy, and it’s very smooth and silky. I’m surprised by how sweet this is, but at the same time it’s not too sweet which is good because it allows the buttery notes from the Oolong to be tasted. This was great from start to finish, and that’s just the first steep.

I’m probably condemning myself to a sleepless night, but I want to try several steeps of this and see where the flavors go. And then I have the other Milk Oolong to try. And then there are the 12 or so other teas in the tea box I still want to try. And then there’s….

Received this as a sample.

I’m just not sure how I feel about oolongs despite how much I want to like them. First thought upon sipping is, meh flowery. Then there’s the milkiness in the back. It has a silky sweetness and I like the milk flavor, but I’m not huge into flowery teas and all oolongs thus far have tasted very flowery to me. It’s not bad, but I’m not craving more.

This isn’t as strong a flavor as other teas (say? David’s version) but the smell is amazing. You taste mostly the oolong tea, with an aftertaste of cream. I was quite pleased, though I wish the flavor was stronger.

A sample from boychik! I liked this one quite a bit. Smooth, deep and pretty milky. It tastes “fresh” for lack of a better descriptor. I think I probably prefer the Golden Lily from Whispering Pines but this is a high quality tea (unsurprisingly) and you wouldn’t go wrong choosing it.

i like this one too, one of my favorite flavored milk oolongs.

I decided to give this tea another go today and used up the rest of one of the sample packets I received in my recent order. This time, I used a bit less leaf per cup and a higher steeping temperature. No rinsing either.

I think I was more successful steeping this the other day. Maybe it was just the water I used, but it tasted more dead/mineral today, and less creamy/buttery. Then again, considering my experience with Tealish’s Milk Oolong a few days ago, maybe milk oolongs are just not my thing. I still have 1 more sample pack to try to get this right.

Mmmmm, this smells so good in the bag. VERY sweet. It also tastes very sweet and makes me worry there might be some form of sugar hiding in there because I’m on a diet and don’t want to have sugar. Luckily I only got a sample of this and won’t be able to drink it anymore. I liked this better than DAVID’s milk oolong, but only because it is sweeter. I fyou don’t like sweet teas, I would stay away from this one.

Honestly, I didn’t know how I would like the flavor of a Oolong Milk tea. As soon as I poured the hot water over the leaves my sense of smell came alive. It had a wonderful scent of creamy fruit that I just loved. Yes, I would love to have this tea again. Thank you so much Teavivre!!!

This is my first experience with milk oolong so I really did not know what to expect or write.

The dry leaves were tight small balls of what I would discover to be large full leaves with a light oolong smell.

The first steep went for 2:45 at 212 and produced a dark gold liquid. The tea is a smooth sweet milky taste with a mellow oolong backing. This is a really interesting tea but I am not sure exactly what to say about this one haha. I am not too much of a fan of flavored teas of any kinds but I think if I were in a mood for one, this would be one I would like.
