Just as many people call Wimbledon tennis’s most important Grand Slam tournament, many a tea connoisseur likes to think of Jin Xuan as the most important oolong to come out of Taiwan. Jin Xuan is grown at 7,500 feet above sea level. At this altitude, the tea leaves are worked upon by hot days and extremely cold nights. These varying climatic conditions, along with a year-round fog, lend this tea a complex and diverse palette of flavors and sensations.

Like most Taiwanese oolongs, Jin Xuan has a naturally sweet flavor. After your first sip, you might find yourself thinking of sugarcane reeds swaying and glistening in the sunshine. However, after a few more brewings of this loose-leaf tea, its accompanying floral and tangerine scents will transport your imagination to a lush green orchard. Grown in the cool, high altitudes of Hualien County, Yezi’s Jin Xuan is brought to you from local tea farmer Gao Xiu Chen and is an ideal beverage for cooling you off on a hot summer day.

Our story about Jin Xuan Oolong Tea

Since Jin Xuan grows at 7,500 feet above sea level, and there is very little agricultural land available at such an altitude, authentic Jin Xuan is extremely rare. But stress not, tea drinker. This is a story with a happy ending. Yezi Tea has teamed up with organic tea farmer Gao Xiu Chen from Taiwan to bring you the finest Jin Xuan tea from the highest mountains of Taiwan.

Bought this on a whim for the Cyber Monday sale. Jin Xuans are among my favorite oolongs and I've tried them from several companies and this is by far the best. The taste was floral yet slightly buttery. The tea was very smooth and not bitter at all.
