OOLONG TEA: Songboling Jin Xuan, Taiwan

| /

Songboling Jin Xuan
Oolong tea, Taiwan

Flavour: floral, milky, vegetal ~ fresh and lively
These lush leaves grew in the village of Songboling, within Ming Jian township, Nantou, central West Taiwan. The cultivar is Jin Xuan, famous for creating the well-known ‘milky oolong’ style of tea.  

Harvested on 10 February 2024, these leaves steep into a lively infusion with notes of flowers and steamed milk and a vegetal hint of zucchini and artichoke in the tail.

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 85-90°. 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.
