Jinxuan Tea, the hand-plucked leaves of Alishan Jin Xuan Oolong Tea are grown in the famous Ali Mountains (Alishan) in Taiwan. At the elevation of 1400 meters, the mountainsides are covered with fog or clouds which are ideal for growing Oolong. With better drought tolerance, also higher yield, the price is usually lower than Alishan Oolong.
Jin-Xuan (TTES #12), is a special variety of Camellia Sinensis developed through research at TaiwanTea Research and Extension Station (tres.gov.tw). This special variety is known for producing an Oolong with a special fragrance and a light milk aroma naturally.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 85-90 degree Celsius. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 150 c.c. of water. A testing cup and a steeping time of about 6 minutes are recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the number of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor.
For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese ceramic (pottery) teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be brewed for multiple times.
