It begins with a subtle natural milky aroma and refined by refreshing floral fragrance and a delicate sweetness, as the steeping goes on, the fruity and floral note compliment the creamy smooth mouth feel.
Three ways of brewing this tea:
Jin Xuan A Li Shan is cultivated in high altitude area, about 1100 to 1500m/4921ft, in A Li Shan mountain, which is located near the Tropic of Cancer, and it’s surrounded by mist and fog all year around. The cold humid environment is beneficial for tea leaves to grow into a tender radiant green color as well as a fresh floral aroma with a subtle hint of milky note.
Brewing Instruction Gaiwan & Teapot
Gai Wan or ceramic pot
Add 5gram/1 tbsp
85 C / 185 F
Add 8oz water and infuse for 3 min.
Repeat for another 3+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 30 seconds with each additional infusion
Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):
Add water and infuse for 5 seconds for 2 infusions
Repeat for another 4+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 5 seconds with each additional infusion
We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.

I love this tea more than I thought I could love a hot beverage. It's soft and light and the depth of flavor that comes with the second steep is unimaginable. Aesthetically, I love watching the leaves unfurl in the water and the beautiful light color the tea turns. I cannot recommend this Milky Oolong enough.
Thank you so much! A Li Shan is one of our favorites too, so delicate yet fragrant.
Sweet aroma and milky aftertaste!
This tea starts out with a sweet aroma followed by a milky taste, almost with a hint of mild honey. The aroma of this tea compliments the taste, and the aftertaste leaves a nutty almond aftertaste. The taste stays around for 3-4 brews and the astringency only kicks in around the 5th brew. I went until the 6th brew while still being able to taste this tea's flavor. The seventh brew started the astringency; but for a oolong to give 3-4 good brews is definitely a bargain. Would definitely try this one again! Definitely on my list for oolong for my guests.
