Thailand Jin Xuan Jade Oolong A Very Special Loose Leaf Tea


£5.00




  • This exceptional green Oolong tea can easily match or indeed exceed those famous Jade Oolong teas from Formosa.
  • For over 50 years this tea has been grown and produced in a garden at the foot of the mountain Doi Phayapai, in northern Thailand.
  • The original plants were imported from the Taiwanese highlands, home to Jade Oolongs, the growers worked with Taiwanese producers to help make improvements to the end product.
  • These fine, hand-rolled, dark leaves are the highest selection from this garden and they make a glowing lime-coloured cup with an exceptional flowery scent.
  • The intense flavoured tea is smooth with a noticeable sweetness and a delightful aftertaste.
  • I have brewed this tea at a couple of different temperatures and for a couple of different times.
  • Initially I tried the typical 90°C that one would for an Oolong and steeped for two minutes, my second infusion was at 75 °C for two minutes and both were wonderful, if different experiences.
  • This is one of those teas that I would suggest you experiment with. You can definitely get three infusions from these leaves and if you infuse at the lower temperature the fourth infusion is still delightful.
  • You will receive 35 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make between 17 cups and 35 cups of tea. At two grams per cup, this works out at between twenty-nine pence and fourteen pence per cup.
  •  At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
