Leaf Type: Oolong Tea
Where to Buy: Dachi Tea
This oolong is made from the Jinxuan varietal invented by Taiwan’s tea research, a varietal renown for its milky aroma and smooth mouthfeel. This specific yield is distinctively vibrant and balances flowery aromas with a faint creaminess, before its chartreuse-colored liqueur and its lightly-floral mid palate give way to a vegetal-yet-sweet finish, reminiscent of sugar snappeas.

Golden Lily Oolong from Dachi Tea. “Golden Lily Oolong” what a pretty name. The name goes perfectly well with this lovely tea that is for sure. My package says it was obtained at Alishan Mountain at 4,000 feet and that it is a Milky Lilly Oolong.
Dry this oolong smells very nice a combination of floral and peas. Once you add the hot water it’s more of a floral aroma. The flavor is heavily floral, subtly sweet because of the sugar snap pea flavor that is naturally found in this leaf, and the finish is quite creamy or ‘milky’ and lives up to it’s name. It’s slippery on the tongue and after the cuppa is long-gone it leaves your tongue and teeth squeaky-clean. Yummy! This is a fantastic oolong!
