Just tried our Alishan High Mountain Oolong for the first time, and I must say, it's very smooth, brothy, buttery, and creamy, but there's not much in the way of aroma or flavor. Mild floral notes on the nose, and mild floral, vegetal, and slightly tannic flavor profile. The flavor is nice and complex, just very mild. Perhaps my expectations were just too high based on reading reviews, or this one is just not to my taste. Fall 2023 lot, tried with the Eco-Cha recommended gongfu brewing ratios and times, which has produced wonderful results for other teas in the past. Holds up well to multiple steepings, just not very strong flavor. If you're looking for a smooth, creamy, buttery, brothy tea with subtle flavor this will provide.
It’s my first time trying Jin Xuan tea. Very nice and smooth. Really like the aroma and the taste. Will definitely become one of my favorite teas.
Shipping was incredibly fast; received in one week, and from overseas, no less. Very impressed with the quality of the tea, the price, and the delivery!
Disclaimer: I'm a long time high mountain oolong snob. The summer 2023 Alishan High Mtn Oolong was fabulous. The year and season are crucial. I noticed less than 5 stars on some of the other years. No way to know until you try. This one is definitely worth your time and money!
One of the best, flavoured tea. I adore it
This type of tea has been my favorite since I first visited Taiwan almost two decades ago, and it is rare to find tea of this amazing quality in the US. I love the flavor, color, and aroma of high mountain Alishan oolong and it is what I drink on most days
