See our article here regarding Milk Oolong – natural or flavored?.
Jin Xuan Oolong was discovered in 1981 by “Father of the Taiwan tea” –Dr. Zhen Zhe Wu who was the former president of TRES (Tea Research and Extension Station). It took 21 years of researching & developing to perfect this tea strain. It was a big part of “re-creating the tea market” in the 1980s and Jin Xuan tea became very popular during this time. Since then Jin Xuan Oolong tea has become one of the main tea strains in Taiwan. The tea farming regions in Nantou county are the most famous areas for growing lower elevation Jin Xuan tea. The best, higher elevation Jin Xuan, however, is in the Alishan mountain region. It is a thick tea leaf with a unique and natural, light milky fragrance and a buttery, creamy taste. This tea is semi-oxidized & lightly roasted.
