Jin Xuan is famous for its creamy, milk like aroma, which complements the rich body and transfers into the flavour with a caramel taste. Hints of honey and frankincense add to the intriguing, complex charm of this special tea. As well as being rich in flavour it is also heavy with theaflavins, exhibited after cooling, when they emulsify to create a milky appearance. Jin Xuan translates as Golden Day Lily and this tea is as fragrant as the flower, with a fruity, floral lingering finish. The addition of a small amount of special oil of bergamot adds another layer that makes this our most distinguished Earl Grey, one that offers a complexity not usually found in scented teas. It is my belief that Taiwan is now the undisputed top producer of black teas in the world. Each variety offers something so unique that they are easily told apart. Why not add Honey Hon Cha, Fo Shou Buddha’s Hand, Sun Moon Lake Ruby, Jin Xuan Golden Lily, Bi Yu Blue Heart and Si Ji Ever Spring to your new tea experiences.
