I am loving the Spring 2023 Jin Xuang. While the fragrance is not as intense as high mountain oolongs I have tried, it is still very aromatic. Really pleasant sweet fragrance, like a fresh honeysuckle blossom without being perfume-like. I also got notes that reminded me of pancakes with light honey and butter. The flavor is so smooth and clean. The vegetal notes are present but mild and sweet. There is just enough astringency to give it a nice bite but it is not overpowering at all.
I feel that this tea competes very favorably with much more expensive handpicked high elevation teas, and it is nice to have a great affordable option from lower-elevetation farms that require less manual labor.
I've been drinking this tea nearly every morning for the last five years, and I've been nothing but impressed. The customer experience at Eco-Cha has been wonderful, the quality has been consistent over the years, and the tea is excellent for the price.
As someone who loves Taiwanese oolongs but can't afford to spend a ton of money, this has been the perfect tea for me. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable entry point into the world of Taiwanese tea!
Great quality and very tasty. Would buy again.
Jin xuan is my all time favorite tea, and this price is a fraction of what I would normally pay for it stateside. I love this tea so much that I have a specific tea pet and purple clay pot dedicated to only jin xuan. I would physically fight somebody for this tea. Just don't oversteep it or it'll get bitter. It's great for lots of short steeps.
I absolutely love this tea. It has a mild smooth flavor
