Taiwan Mei Shan 'Jin Xuan' Oolong Tea



A creamy floral aroma combined with a smooth cream taste with floral notes.

Mei Shan is one of the less fashionable mountain areas with the oolongs often ending up being re-labelled as from the neighbouring Ali Shan which commands a higher price. As a result, buying teas labelled as Mei Shan means you get a similar quality tea to Ali Shan but at a better price.
