OOLONG TEA: Songboling Jin Xuan ~ Roasted, Taiwan

| /

Songboling Jin Xuan - Roasted
Oolong tea, Taiwan

Flavour: sweet, creamy, nutty, fruity
These leaves were harvested on 10 February 2024 in Songboling village, Ming Jian, Nantou, central west Taiwan. After oxidation, rolling and compression, they were heavily roasted over 68 hours. 

The ‘milky oolong’ Jin Xuan tea plant cultivar is famous for its milky flavour profile. When steeped, this tea releases a delicate, sweet fragrance of warmed cream and fruit. The infusion is light in body with soft notes of crème brulée, dry-roasted nuts and dried red berries. 

The Wang Family has been involved in Taiwanese tea for many generations. The company is now run by brother and sister duo Joshua and Ivy Wang, who have a passion for sustainable and environmentally friendly practices and sharing the best tea that Taiwan has to offer.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 95°. Four infusions. 

Sizes: this tea comes in four sizes: a 3-gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (four plus times for this tea), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
