90

This is the second note on this and it’s a sipdown but I just have to buy more. It’s one of my favorites. I had mentioned the banana nut bread taste and instead of using a gaiwan as I did the first time, I made a 18 oz pot with 15g of it with several infusions, starting with 1 minutes infusion and working up. That wonderful banana bread taste is stronger brewing it this way. The baked cherry aroma and notes are so yummy too. I’ve been drinking a lot of black tea and pu’erh lately and boom… Just like that my fickle tea self, fell back in love with a good roasted Jin Xuan. I upped the rating more to remind myself, this has got to be on my shelf.

Now I need to compare Vietnam Medium-Roast Jin Xuan Red Oolong Tea. That was my other favorite What-Cha tea (plus the sticky rice one, of course).

Flavors: banana, Bread, Cherry, Nuts

LuckyMe, to me (and I say that emphatically since taste is subjective), it reminds me why I love oolong. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Matcha, Gyokuro, Sencha, Genmaicha… Etc. I like all teas: Green, oolong, black & pu’erh (prefer ripe over raw).

Chanoyu (for matcha prep) and Gongfu cha (for other types of tea) are the main ways I prepare my tea (Gaiwan, Yixing teapot, Kyusu). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. This past year, I’ve tried many flavored now because of all of you lol. As long as there aren’t artificial sweeteners, it’s all good.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, 52Teas, Whispering Pines, Bird & Blend, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia.

The flavors I dislike: Artificial sweetener, lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, papaya, honeydew, rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, any mints, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread/pastry, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas unless they are flavored, then I may add a splash of milk.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
