Known as “Milk Oolong”, Jin Xuan is a relatively new cultivar that has a unique natural milk and osmanthus aroma. Unlike many low-quality Jin Xuan varieties that have added milk flavoring, this varietal has absolutely no milk involved in its production, which is especially evident in its natural fragrance and lack of astringency. Our premium Jin Xuan was harvested at about 1,300 meters (4,265 ft.). It has a lovely buttery and creamy body, with a sweet milky essence and floral notes. As an added benefit to its delicious flavor, Jin Xuan Oolong is also known for containing an abundance of antioxidants, which may reduce the effects of aging.
