Jin Xuan Black Tea [Limited Lot]
This Jin Xuan Formosa Black Tea is from a small lot produced in early Spring 2017 before the long spell of bad weather. This is a smooth tea with a creamy texture, mild honey tones and a lingering aftertaste. Over the coming months we expect the tea to mellow and continue to get better with a few months under its belt.
