Moderately oxidized oolong of Jin Xuan cultivar (TTES12, Golden Daylily) grown in 300 – 350 m altitude in Nantou County nearby Ming Jian town, west Taiwan. Tea was grown and processed by Mr. Tsai who grows tea in Natural Farming style, in harmony with surrounding nature without any chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Slight oxidation 15 %, traditinal tight rolling into middle sized balls of darker green colour, with sweet creamy aroma. Transparent light green in a cup with an intense flowery aroma (apple trees) with a hint of citruses and resin (greek masticha), soft creamy flavour with a vanilla aftertaste.
Preparation: we recommend to prepare the tea in 1,5 dcl of water. Put 3 g of tea into a warmed teapot and pour the boiled water, cooled down to 85°C . Let it steep for 1 – 1,5 minute, then pour into a cup. You can repeat the process many times, untill the tea has a good taste. With firther infusions, we slightly increase water temperature and time of steeping.
Jin Xuan (Golden Daylilly, Hemerocallis) is named after a specific tea tree strain developed in early 80´s by the Tea Research and Extension Station of Taiwan (TRES), a national institute for development of tea industry in Taiwan. The institute uses a numerical line for its new cultivars. Jin Xuan has number 12, sometimes also TRES #12 or T-12. It has earned a marking „milk oolong“ for its velvety, creamy flavor. This milky flavor is very often strengthened by chemicals, but not in this case.
