The cultivation history of Jinxuan tea

Jin Xuan Tea, also known as “27 Zai”, is a new variety bred in Taiwan: Taiwan Tea No. 12, and “Jin Xuan” is named after the grandmother of Wu Zhenduo, the director of the tea improvement farm at the time.

Jinxuan tea plant is a native tea variety cultivated by the Taiwan Tea Improvement Farm (during the Japanese occupation period for the Tea Production Bureau affiliated to the Taiwan Governor’s Office Breeding Bureau) from the 43rd year of the Republic of China, with hard branches and red hearts as the father, Tainong No. 8 as the mother, cultivated through artificial breeding, No. 2027, and after successful cultivation, it became the twelfth cultivation of new varieties, that is, Taiwan Tea No. 12.

This breeding method takes 21 years to complete a breeding cycle, but the results are also encouraging, the improved breeding of Jinxuan tea plant is not only more resistant to diseases and pests, but also has a higher yield, so far Jinxuan tea has become an excellent variety that can be grown in large quantities and exported abroad.

Golden Xuan oolong tea effect

Jinxuan tea is most commonly made into oolong tea, which is the second largest type of tea containing second most catechins after green tea. Catechins have antioxidant effects, which can remove free radicals in the human body and help reduce the possibility of cancer cell proliferation; In addition, catechins can also help lower blood sugar, blood lipids and blood pressure, and prevent cardiovascular disease.

In addition to helping to prevent cardiovascular diseases, tea polyphenols and catechins in oolong tea have another effect: reduce the absorption of intestinal sugars and fats, help digestion, and stimulate metabolism; And oolong tea also has the effect of improving bad breath and preventing plaque and tooth decay, so many people will choose oolong tea as an after-meal drink.

Although the effect of tea is good, but still pay attention to the amount of drinking, about 2000C.C. daily water intake, about 600C.C. tea is a better amount, drinking too much oolong tea will affect iron absorption, resulting in symptoms of anemia, and because oolong tea has the effect of astringent gastrointestinal mucosa, patients with weak gastrointestinal sensitivity and constipation are not recommended to drink too much.

Jinxuan tea plant with different degrees of fermentation, the degree of aroma emitted will also be different, Jinxuan tea tree can be made into black tea, green tea and light fermented oolong tea, unfermented Jinxuan tea milk aroma is the strongest, and the tea flavor concentration is also higher, with the higher the degree of tea fermentation, the faint milk aroma, and osmanthus aroma is stronger and clearer, therefore, the Jinxuan tea leaves into light fermentation oolong tea, the most can alleviate the strong smell of tea and the concentration of the contained substances, prevent stomach discomfort and too heavy taste of tea soup, Let the aroma harmonize the mouth, sweet and mellow.

Identification of the authenticity of Jinxuan tea

Jinxuan tea is not only widely loved, but also a popular variety of tea exported from Taiwan, with a unique milky and osmanthus aroma, which also makes Jinxuan tea a popular base tea in many hand-cranked drinking shops. But also because of this, some unscrupulous businessmen saw the business opportunities of Jinxuan tea, added flavors and spices to the tea, tried to make an imitation version of Jinxuan tea, drank the fragrant rich tea in one sip, admired the strong aroma at the same time, may have drunk the artificially made flavor tea.

So, how do we identify the authenticity of Jinxuan tea?

The following two big points teach you how to distinguish the authenticity of Jinxuan tea:

1. Tea soup and tea aroma

The milk aroma and floral aroma of Jinxuan tea need to be tasted and smelled after brewing to find that simply smelling tea leaves will not have a strong milk aroma, so if you simply smell the tea leaves can obviously smell the milk or floral aroma, or the aroma in the tea soup is very obvious, and the single milk or floral aroma remains in the mouth for a long time, it may be a processed tea with flavors and spices.

2. Tea price

Although Jinxuan tea belongs to a tea variety that is well planted and has a large yield, due to the special aroma and the identity of Taiwan’s cultivated alpine tea, its price belongs to the medium and high price, if the price of Jinxuan tea base drink is lower than or equal to that of general base tea when buying hand-cranked drinks, there is a high probability of using flavored tea.
