Why We Love It: Jin Xuan is also known around the world as ‘milk oolong,’ one of Taiwan’s most popular exports. This special hand-picked, creamy oolong has no ‘milk additives,’ or flavoring - it’s pure as can be. Harvested at extremely high altitudes, this is an incredible example of the bold flavors oolongs naturally hold.
