A 2017 Garden Direct Series exclusive! This impressive collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers. Available for a limited time, these handcrafted teas were selected through real time micro-lot tea cuppings during our 2017 origin travels.

Aged Jin Xuan Deep Baking Oolong is a special type of oolong tea produced in the Doi Mae Salong mountainous region in northern Thailand. This full-bodied oolong tea is deeply oxidized and slowly baked to bring out complex layers of pomegranate, molasses and chocolate with a sublime, elegant structure. The soil in northern Thailand is soft and loamy, providing a concentration of nutrients not found in other oolong tea origins. This lends a unique sweetness and rich viscosity in mouthfeel. Explore our Doi Mae Salong Travelogue and learn more about our 2017 trip to Thailand.



Tasting Notes: Sumptuous with a unique baked-fruity sweetness evocative of pomegranate molasses, madeira wine, and bittersweet chocolate.

Ingredients: Organic oolong tea

Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Times: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 4 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

This tea is amazingly great! Smooth taste with no hint of bitterness even when over-brewed. What a difference from regular, commercial oolong! Well worth it. Following the brewing instructions can give you 4 large cups per teaspoon.

I was expecting something different but this is basically an aged version of Ruby oolong though a little more smoother. If you like Ruby oolong you will enjoy this very much. Great hot or iced.
