Old Barrel Tea Co. is pleased to release Batch No. 001 Jin Xuan to the market.  This is the first project from Old Barrel Tea Co.  comprised of Australian tea specialists Cheryl Tea (Flag & Spear), Tania Stacey (Cuppa Cha) and Kym Cooper (The Steepery Tea Co.)  Our Jin Xin Oolong has been sourced from Wang’s award-winning tea garden in Chiayi, located in the northwestern area of the famous AliShan region of Taiwan.  This high mountain Oolong is from the prized winter picking – the leaves are harvested before the tea bushes rest during the winter snow.  The winter pluck Jin Xuan presents stronger notes of cream, butter, and orchid flowers.  Aged in STARWARD whisky barrels for 67 days, this Jin Xuan has developed a boozy whisky aroma, tropical fruit flavour, and a thicker mouthfeel.  The finish is long, with lingeringly sweet whisky notes!
