Is Jin Xuan Oolong an aromatic tea?
No, the pure and nature dired Jin Xuan oolong does have very unique flavour, it is a mixture of flora, mung bean and creamy notes. The flavour from dried leaves is not very strong, but once it’s being waken up in a warmed tea pot or cup, you will be amazed by its intense flavours.
Some people interpreted its unique creamy flavour as milky flavour and named it as ‘Milky Oolong’ in English. Because of this English name, so now a day there are aromatic Milky Oolong tea that has been scented with milk extract to satisfy buyers who like very strong and sexy milky flavour.
Whether you like pure and nature flavour or scented with extra flavour extract is a matter of choice. After all, you are the boss of your own body and health.
