From Mountain Tea

JinXuan, which translates to “golden daylily”, is also known as milk oolong for its milky fragrance and taste. Expect heavy body and tastes that are floral with a slight peachy sweetness, the mouthfeel is very substantial and creamy. While flavoring is sometimes added to JinXuan tea to accentuate the milk flavor, this is most often done with lesser-quality and low altitude tea. Our High Mountain Jin Xuan is just that; grown at an elevation well over 1,500 meters in the misty mountains of Taiwan’s interior. We have not flavored this tea in any way, one sip will convince the most discerning tea enthusiast that it is unnecessary.

Jin Xuan was created in 1981 by Taiwan’s Tea Research and Experimentation Station under the experimental code name 2027. It was popularized because of it’s golden liquor, buttery mouthfeel, and overwhelming notes of sweet cream. Good for four infusions. JinXuan is known for its creamy flavors but only proper brewing techniques will bring out those notes. Lower temperatures produce cream notes; higher temperatures bring out more floral qualities.

I got like six free ounces of this tea during a promotion Mountain Tea did last year. I’m not the biggest drinker of green oolongs, but every once in a while I find myself in the mood and I’ve been slowly working my way through it. Tonight was one of those nights.

I gave it a quick rinse and let the leaves open up for about a minute. Brews a very light yellow-green. Tastes of under-ripe tropical fruits, parsley, kale, and cane sugar. The first steep is a bit thin, but by the second it has a nice creamy texture and flavor. Like some other
greener Taiwan oolongs I’ve had it has a lingering fruity sweetness in the mouth that reminds me of Flintstones vitamins.

Overall it’s a fairly nice, budget Taiwan oolong. Also makes a good overnight cold brew.

I’m planning an order with Mountain Tea to get a big stash of their Amber Oolong, and I want to try their Ruby #18 black and aged Green Heart as well. Any recommendations for other “must try”s ?
