From Tea from Taiwan

Winter 2009

This is a Jin-Xuan 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.

These “milk oolongs” just didn’t do it for me, but I’ll preface that by saying I don’t have a gaiwan. I ordered one today from Jing’s Tea Shop…a 125cc model I think, so I may try these “milky” ones again later after I get my cup. As it is, I tried the sample size with about 10-12 ounces water and steeped for 5 minutes at 195F. Just not the amount of flavor I am looking for…too mild. I think the sample sizes are 7 grams. If anyone has an estimate of steeping times and amount of tea for my new gaiwan when I get it in about two weeks, I am all ears. :)

My first flavored milk tea, and I must say that I really do enjoy it. I’m not sure if I have a preference for flavored or non-flavored milk tea yet.

I purchased the Spring 2014 batch in a sample pack. The tea has a lovely flavor and has a creamy feel, but I didn’t get the milky flavor I was hoping for. To be fair, I did eat recently, so I am going to brew this again and see what I come up with. I liked this tea, but I am hoping a second try will give me the chance to pick out more aromas and flavors.

Maybe I’m just used to drinking these Taiwanese oolongs now but I didn’t really get the “milk” flavor this time, or at least more than any of the others I’ve been drinking. I’ll have to try Rui Feng Jin Xuan again but I think that was my favorite of the milk oolongs (though it was also the FIRST of the samples I tried…)
