I, too, do not normally care for flower-scented teas but I decided to give this one a go was surprised. It has a nice sweetness to it and a great fragrance. I think the fact that it is a JinXuan cultivar is why I enjoyed it as much as I did. I agree with the description about being careful with water heat or you will ruin some citrous notes. Marco's review sums up the details of the tea well, so I won't repeat that. I won't order it again simply because flower teas aren't my favorite, but it's high quality and deserves 5 stars.
This tea knocked my socks off. Even on Steep #5. I drank it on a cold winters day it reminded me of spring and sunshine. And tastes amazing.
It’s just a lovely tea. I’ve steeped the tea for well over an hour and it doesn’t over-steep. I’ve had a lightly flavored cup to a thick liqueur and I haven’t found any tannins. It’s so flavorful but not overwhelming on the palate. I got 50g and immediately bought an additional 100g after trying one cup, gongfu style. Outstanding.
I'm not usually impressed with scented teas- either an artificial scent or low quality tea. This quality milk oolong blends beautifully with the gorgeous fragrance of the pomelo flowers. Light to medium weight, soft, medium finish. Hard to put the cup down.
Purchased 50g rather than just a sample due to limited quantity and availability- now out of stock- would love to buy more.
Shipping: Eight days door to door from Taiwan to Pennsylvania, US. Wow!
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.
