What Is Jin Xuan Oolong Tea?

Jin Xuan Oolong Tea, often referred to as Milk Oolong tea, is celebrated for its distinctive creamy flavor and smooth texture. The name “Jin Xuan” translates to “Golden Daylily” in English, symbolizing the milk oolong tea’s golden hue and delicate floral notes. This premium tea is primarily cultivated in the high-altitude regions of Taiwan, particularly in the Alishan mountains, where the cool, misty environment enhances its unique characteristics. Jin Xuan Oolong is known for its natural milky aroma, a quality inherent in the tea leaves themselves, offering a unique and delightful tasting experience. Unlike other flavored teas, its creamy essence is naturally present, making it a standout choice for tea enthusiasts seeking authenticity and quality.

Jin Xuan Oolong Tea was developed in the early 1980s by the Tea Research and Extension Station in Taiwan as part of a breeding program aimed at producing high-quality, flavorful teas suited to Taiwan’s unique climate. Named after its creator, Mr. Jin Xuan, this oolong variety quickly became popular for its exceptional flavor and aromatic properties. The development of Jin Xuan Oolong was a significant innovation in the tea industry, combining traditional tea cultivation techniques with modern agricultural research. Over the years, milk oolong tea has become one of Taiwan’s most beloved teas, known for its smooth, creamy flavor and the meticulous craftsmanship involved in its production. Its success has cemented Taiwan’s reputation as a premier producer of specialty teas.

The processing of Jin Xuan Oolong Tea starts with the careful hand-picking of young, tender leaves, ensuring only the highest quality is selected. The leaves of milk oolong tea undergo a moderate withering process to reduce moisture content, followed by a light oxidation phase to develop their unique flavor profile. This is followed by a meticulous rolling process, where the leaves are shaped into tight, oval-shaped tea balls. The milk oolong tea is then lightly roasted to enhance its creamy, milky notes and floral aroma. This careful processing of Jin Xuan Oolong tea preserves the integrity of the leaves, allowing them to unfurl slowly in hot water, releasing their rich, full-bodied flavor and captivating aroma over multiple infusions. The result is a tea that offers a consistently exceptional drinking experience with each brew.

How to Determine the Quality of Jin Xuan Oolong Tea?

For customers wondering how to select Jin Xuan Oolong tea, here are four tips to help you select good-quality jin xuan oolong tea:

  1. Leaf Appearance: Premium Jin Xuan oolong tea leaves are tightly rolled into uniform, oval-shaped balls. They should have a vibrant green color with a slight yellow tint, indicative of proper oxidation and careful drying. The milk oolong tea leaves should also be thick, fuzzy, and free from any signs of damage, breakage, or discoloration. When unfurled, high-quality leaves reveal a complete, robust structure with visible veins, suggesting meticulous hand-picking and processing. This attention to detail ensures the tea’s rich flavor and aromatic qualities. The leaf’s appearance directly correlates with its brewing performance and flavor profile, making it a critical aspect to examine when assessing the tea’s quality.
  2. Aroma: High-quality Jin Xuan Milk oolong tea should emit a natural, fresh milky fragrance that is both delicate and inviting. This milky aroma should not be overpowering but should blend harmoniously with subtle floral notes, often reminiscent of orchids or gardenias. The scent should be clean, pure, and free from any artificial or chemical undertones, indicating that no additives have been used. When brewed, the aroma of milk oolong tea should intensify, filling the room with a captivating blend of creamy and floral fragrances. This natural aromatic property highlights the tea’s exceptional quality and careful processing, distinguishing it from lower-quality varieties.
  3. Flavor Profile: A high-quality Jin Xuan oolong tea will have a smooth, creamy texture with a natural sweetness akin to caramel or sweet milk. This initial sweetness should be followed by delicate floral undertones, creating a complex and balanced taste. The milk oolong tea should be free from any bitterness or astringency, even after multiple infusions. Each sip of milk oolong should leave a pleasant, lingering aftertaste, with the creamy and floral notes remaining consistent throughout the brewing process. This persistence of flavor is a hallmark of superior Jin Xuan Oolong, ensuring an exceptional drinking experience that is both rich and satisfying.
  4. Brewing Performance: High-quality Jin Xuan oolong tea can be brewed multiple times, with each infusion maintaining its distinctive creamy and floral characteristics. The tea leaves should unfurl slowly and evenly in hot water, releasing their rich flavor and aroma gradually. The tea liquor should be a clear, golden hue, indicative of proper processing and oxidation. After several brews, the milk oolong tea leaves should retain their structure and continue to impart a smooth, sweet, and fragrant taste. This ability to maintain flavor and aroma across multiple infusions showcases the tea’s exceptional quality and craftsmanship, distinguishing it from lesser-quality teas that lose their flavor quickly.

How to Brew Jin Xuan Oolong Tea?

Hot Brew Jin Xuan Oolong Tea

  1. Prepare the Tea: Measure 1 teaspoon of Jin Xuan Oolong Tea leaves per 150ml of water.
  2. Boil Water: Heat water to around 90°C (194°F). Using water that is too hot can scorch the leaves, while water that is too cool will not extract the full flavor.
  3. Rinse the Leaves: Pour a small amount of hot water over the milk oolong tea leaves and quickly discard it. This step, known as rinsing, helps to wake up the leaves and enhance the flavor.
  4. Steep: Add the rinsed leaves to your teapot or gaiwan and pour in the hot water. Let the milk oolong tea steep for 1-2 minutes for the first infusion. You can adjust the steeping time for subsequent infusions based on your taste preference, typically 30 seconds to 1 minute longer for each additional brew.
  5. Enjoy: Pour the tea into a cup and savor its rich, creamy, and floral flavors. Jin Xuan Oolong Tea can be steeped multiple times, with each infusion revealing new layers of taste.

Cold Brew Milk Oolong Tea

  1. Prepare the Tea: Measure 2 tablespoons of Jin Xuan Oolong Tea leaves per liter of cold water.
  2. Combine Tea and Water: Place the tea leaves in a pitcher or large container and fill with cold, filtered water. Using cold water helps to extract the tea’s natural sweetness and delicate flavors without bitterness.
  3. Steep: Cover the container and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the tea to steep for 8-12 hours. The longer steeping time allows for a smooth, mellow flavor to develop.
  4. Strain: After steeping, strain the milk oolong tea leaves and transfer the cold-brewed tea to a clean container or directly into serving glasses.
  5. Serve: Pour the tea over ice and enjoy its refreshing, creamy, and subtly sweet taste. For an extra touch, add a slice of lemon or a few fresh mint leaves.
