Pomelo Flower Fragrance Oolong 

**The 2020 Spring season has been a little cold and so the pomelo flowers were limited this year. We still got some of this delicate and beautifully floral tea. We only have about 500g left. The tea used for this year's tea is a gorgeous bug bitten milk oolong so after the first couple steeps of flowers the remain steeps of sweet milk oolong are great! **

Ruisui Taiwan is famous for two things, tea and pomelos. This tea is a mix of both. Fresh spring picked milk oolong infused with the intoxicating citrus/jasmine smell of pomelo flowers. The tea and flowers are laid together, but not mixed. Dried together but without touching. The process creates an amazing expression of spring, a rare and beautiful tea.

This tea is only made for about two weeks in the Taiwanese spring. A very limited amount of tea is made. If you would like some, it is best not to wait to long! 

While brewing this tea it is best to treat this tea like a green tea, with longer, cooler water steeps. If the water is too hot it can burn off the gorgeous perfume like Citrus floral notes that have been infused into this amazing tea.

Truly Intoxicating

A quality JinXuan with an exceptionally floral bouquet, this is what scented teas should aspire to be. Silky smooth mouthfeel with flavor that doesn’t give up after several steeps, and floral without being one-note. This is definitely one to keep an eye on when it comes into stock.

Pomelo Fragrance Oolong

Appearance: Luminous yellow colored liquor with tinges of pine green
Aroma: Dry leaf has a tart jasmine like nose accompanied by slight grassy notes. Wet leaf has a bouquet of jasmine perfume, rose buds and pomelo peel. It has a background of pine needles and grass.
Body: Medium
Mouthfeel: It has a very smooth and creamy delivery. It finishes with a gentle astringency.
Flavor Notes: It begins with some floral notes of jasmine perfume and rose petals accompanied by freshly plucked pine needles and wet grass notes. Citrus notes of tangerine pulp and ripe pomelo fruit develops and finishes at the backend by the third steep.
Finish: It has a soft floral and zesty citrus finish accompanied by gentle astringency.
Note: I got this tea as a freebie from my order. Normally, I wouldn't order scented teas. But, this one was really good! The tea to me starts like a normal Jin Xuan but the scenting process made it similar to a Tie Guan Yin with a similar tangy finish.

Soooooo GOOD!

This tea is a superb example of how a real scented tea should be! I know nothing about pomelo but the floral fragrant taste in the first few steepings was beyond wonderful! The classie Jinxuan cultivar flavor is exceptional on its on but this just adds to it! I HIGHLY recommend!
