Brewing Suggestions
 
Generally, there is a lot of confusion over how "milk" Oolong is made. The truth is, the milk essence is similar to the elusive "muscatel" flavors in great Darjeelings; even the best gardens cannot guarantee abundant or even consistent amounts of flavor. In this case, the same thing applies to the floral "milkiness" that is unique to Jin Xuan varietal Oolongs of Taiwan. Although milk powder is sometimes used to fertilize tea plants in hopes of getting more of that "milky" taste, it is mostly done for marketing purposes. As milk Oolong continued to garner recognition, merchants began to use artificial flavorings and chemical extracts, applied directly to lower grade Oolong teas, in order to maximize profit.

Our lightly oxidized varietal displays an elegant yet insistent, milky flavor and a uniquely creamy mouth-feel. Our tea is free from any additives, as we select from only trusted sources who produce this tea without any artificial flavorings or chemicals. This offering of authentic milk Oolong is simply not to be missed!

4 of 5 It's A Good Value Worth Trying February 16, 2021
Reviewer: Jess from New York, NY, United States  
I am new to oolongs and was curious about jin xuan. I got the smaller size and it smells fragrant and tastes good. I think I prefer other teas but I was delighted by the fast shipping and the brewing instructions which help a novice like me.

5 of 5 So far, so good… December 29, 2020
Reviewer: Gary Crounse from San Francisco, CA United States  
Not wanting to rush into things, i have so far only sniffed and snuffled into the bag, but the faint lactical hints are intriguing. I'll brew a pot on New Year's Day to welcome fresh possibilities. Stay tuned.

5 of 5 A Lovely Smooth Tea October 8, 2020
Reviewer: Charles Raymond from Boise, ID United States  
This tea has such a smooth and unique flavor one must try it to understand what I'm trying to convey. I'vet tried other "milky oolongs" but Imperial Tea Court has the best I've ever had.
