Jin Shuan Oolong Tea / 金萱烏龍茶
Jin Shuan is the name of a type of tea tree that has been newly cultivated in Taiwan. The main production site of this tea is in Nantou and Chiayi. The leaves of Jin Shuan are thick, plump, and freshly tender with a lustrous emerald green color. The taste is pure and smooth with an elegant, subtle milky sweet flavor and a floral aroma. This is a unique tea popular among women and young consumers.
Note: The previous edition of Honey Aroma Jin Shuan (Spring 2007) sold at Fang Gourmet Tea was named for its fragrance. Those were hand picked tea of the season with a higher level of ripeness and fermentation that transformed naturally into a natural honey aroma.
