Nai Xiang (Jin Xuan) translates as ‘Milk Fragrant’. Like the other types of oolong tea, is extremely fragrant, sweet and great as an every day drink.
The tea brews to a pale yellow colour and produces sweet floral aroma and taste.
The emerald leaves are wound into tiny little pellets, and from their appearance, they look like many other Oolong teas that I’ve encountered. But, once they’re steeped – Wow! This is one amazing tea.
The aroma is incredible. It has a sweet, milky scent with floral notes. This scent shares a hint of what to expect when you taste the tea.
The sip starts out smooth and creamy. A moment later a sweetness washes over the palate. Floral notes come alive at this point. The sip ends with a hint of butter flavor. The finish is sweet with beautiful flowery notes that rest upon the palate in the aftertaste. It is quite an experience.
And here’s the best part. These beautiful pellets of flavor submit to many wonderful infusions. More infusions means more tea for your money!
This tea is truly a delight. I highly recommend it to all Oolong enthusiasts, especially those who adore milk Oolong teas.
