Shanlinxi Milky Oolong
Shanlinxi Milky Oolong｜杉林溪金萱烏龍
Tasting notes: Creamy, floral, milky-sweet
Origin: Shanlinxi, Nantou, Taiwan
Cultivar: 金萱 Jinxuan
Grown at high altitudes in Shanlinxi, Nantou, this prized Taiwanese oolong is loved for its thick buttery mouthfeel. It has a naturally occurring milky fragrance and a hint of bright citrus that comforts and uplifts.
Milky Oolong is wildly popular these days, and for good reason. Its distinctive buttery texture comes from the signature thick leaves of the 金萱 Jinxuan (golden daylily) cultivar developed in the 1980s and grown exclusively in Taiwan. Unlike other teas that can be made from a variety of cultivars, this one must be made from the Jinxuan cultivar to achieve that delightful creamy mouthfeel.
Sadly, because of its popularity, myriad fake versions have popped up in the market with artificial flavouring. It’s not easy to find a high quality, pure Milky Oolong these days, so we’re very glad we found this one. We can attest to its quality, having personally witnessed the entire production process from beginning to end.
As a light, floral tea, Shanlinxi Milky Oolong pairs beautifully with a soft, airy chiffon cake or scones with jam and (plenty of) cream. The perfect afternoon tea treat!
