1. View

The dry leaves are big and have a light yellowish hue. The brew has a very good transparency and bright yellow color. The size of the open leaves confirms that they come from a high elevation. The oxidation marks show a good processing.  

2. Scents

High mountain freshness and floral scents are coming from these leaves.

3. Taste

The taste is mellow and zesty. It has a light kick that you only find in high mountain Oolongs.

This makes this Jinxuan very appealing as it brings along a lot of high mountain characteristics. 


Brewing tip: This rolled Oolong needs not just boiling water to open up, it also requires a thorough preheating of the tea vessel (porcelain or gaiwan). Wait roughly 1 minute or a little more for the first brew.
