One of my personal favorite
You'll encounter lots of legends about this tea that creates a firework of flavors on your palate. An excellent Oolong-tasting tenderly sweet with a note of creamy milk due especially to the mountains and elevation where the Jin Xuan (a specific Camellia Sinensis bush) grows and the extreme care the tea crafters work the leaves
On top of that delicious flavor, like other oolongs this loose leaf tea consists of polyhenols that help destroy free radicals and boost overall health, relieves mental and physical stress, contributes to weight loss and makes your skin cleaner

Many Milk Oolongs often include artificial flavoring and milk components. If this is the case, you will surely know by the aroma.
The milky scent will greatly overpower the original tea aroma. The aroma of a quality Jin Xuan Oolong should only slightly remind you of a milky scent.
A quality Milk Oolong will almost always come directly from Taiwan (for now, the majority produced in China are artificially flavored).
