Ali Shan Jin Xuan Non Xiang

Taiwanese oolong tea

Ali Shan Jin Xuan Non Xiang Ali Shan Jin Xuan Non Xiang Ali Shan Jin Xuan Non Xiang

Jin Xuan is rarely grown in high mountains, so this tea is a real treasure. Ali Mountain is famous for its fog rising almost every afternoon from the nearby valleys, and fog is the key for the most aromatic teas. That and the reduced sunlight accentuates the cultivar's floral-creamy scent. It's really worth it to take a moment at each step and appreciate how every single one of them has to show something different. This tea is spring harvest, so both the fragrance and the taste are rich.

The steamed leaves are already foretelling the creaminess. The scent of salted vanilla mixes with almond milk and toast, spiced up with the sour aroma of baked walnuts. The flushed leaves are citrusy and floral, with the still present baked walnuts. It gives the impression of a freshly baked pound cake. The toasty notes are stronger in the fragrance than in the flavour.

The first flush is silky and subtle, floral, milky, lightly toasty, and there is also a faint tropical fruitiness. Lightly roasted, high quality Jin Xuan oolongs always have this fruity tone beside the milky-toasty notes.

The later infusions are getting milkier with a lasting buttery mouth feel. After the surprisingly strong floral-creamy-custardy first few seconds, mango and papaya comes forward and then fade into something green and grassy. The aftertaste is fresh, with the lingering tone of sweet grapes.

The teasoup is pale muscat green.

How to prepare

2.5 fl oz
75 cc
30 sec.~

STEP 1) Warm your teapot. Pour boiling water into a gaiwan or teapot, let it sit for a little while, then discard all the water.
STEP 2) Rinse. Put the tea leaves in your vessel, pour hot water over them and then discard the water quickly. This step is for "waking the leaves" a little bit.
STEP 3) Brew. Pour boiling water on your rinsed tea leaves and brew for 30 seconds.
STEP 4) Serve. Pour the tea into a pitcher, and then into cups.
STEP 5) Brew again.

❖ After the first few infusions, you can increase the steeping time (to about 35-40 seconds).
❖ Make sure to open the lid of the teapot between infusions, to prevent the leaves from cooking.
❖ This is how we recommend brewing this tea, but we all have our preferences, so try experimenting to find the way you like it the most.
