Sung Meng Tea specializes in Jin Xuan (Milk Oolong) shines a pale yellow-gold color when it is infused. Its smell is intriguing, particular and almost buttery. It has a buttery flavor, ever so slightly sweet flavor with a subtle aftertaste that coats the back of your throat and stays with you for a while as time goes on. This particular tea leaf was produced by farmers who placed in the top third, in the category of oolong. As a high-mountain oolong tea, it is grown at a height of between 3000 and 4500 feet on the beautiful slopes of the famous Ali Shan Mountain in Taiwan.

Famous in Taiwan for its beauty, Mount Ali (Ali shan) is particularly known for its five wonders: sunrise, clouds, sunset, forests and the small gage charming mountain railway. Add to that cherry blossoms, and waterfalls, you have the stuff that poetry is made of. It’s hard to find a more magical, beautiful, awe-inspiriting location to grow teas and taste teas.

The rolled, blue-green leaves have an intense milk aroma, like milk toffee or hard milk candy, with a slight orchid floral undertone. It smells sweet and lovely. Likewise, the bright yellow brew is incredibly aromatic and flavorful. Its scents of creamy caramel, flavors of cream, milk, coconut milk and vanilla-infused cream fade into a lingering, sweet-green aftertaste. It has finish of gardenias, ripe fruits and warm cream which are remarkably indulgent. Later infusions are greener, more floral and equally complex.

Brewed color: Light yellow-gold.
Preparation: For best results, use spring water or mineral water that has just come to a boil: wait a moment, then pour over the leaves.

Nice, light and sweet. That milky aroma transitions nicely into the cup and leaves a welcome lingering taste on the last sip.
