Nai Xiang - Jin Xian
Known in Chinese as Nai Xiang - Jin Xian, the name of this oolong variety – grown at high altitude in Taiwan – translates as ‘fragrant milk’. The name describes its smooth, creamy feel and petal-scented aroma.
Unlike many inferior varieties, our natural oolong tea has nothing added or taken away, allowing the natural milky flavour of the leaves to sing. This tea is mild and soothing on the palate, but it has a wonderfully revitalising effect on the spirit.
“The Natural Oolong tea leaves are compact twists that swell on infusion”
This Oolong tea is sourced from Taiwan. The leaves are bested harvest in Autumn and we buy exclusively in Autumn.
1 tbsp per cup (250ml); water at temperature 100°C; rinse leaves; infuse for 2 minutes.
Depending on how strong or mild you like your tea, vary the amount of tea leaves used.
If the leaves infuse for too long or the water temperature too high the tea may taste bitter
The second infusion can be even better than the first. This tea can be enjoyed up to three infusions.
