Shui Xian is a well-known and much loved Oolong tea in China. White it's a popular tea for the Gong Fu ceremony, Shui Xian can be also found in most Chinese restaurants' menu. Our Shui Xian originates from the high mountains of Wu Yi Shan, a name that has became a synonym of high quality Oolong teas. Oolong teas from Mount Wu Yi are also referred as Yan Cha ("Rock Tea") due to the rocky terrain where the tea plants grow. Shui Xian from Wu Yi Shan is also said to have higher minerals contents compared to those grown in southern Fujian and Guangdong.

Shui Xian is a leafy, dark, charcoal-roasted, highly-oxidized strip-style "yan cha".The distinctive feature of Shui Xian tea leaves is their size, which is huge in comparison to other Oolong teas.

It's a strong and full-bodied Oolong with a scotch-like peaty flavor, a rich, smooth mouth-filling taste and refreshing floral aftertaste.

Shui Xian is a reasonably-priced introduction to the wonderful and complicated world of "yan cha", ideal choice for those who would love to drink a satisfying and delicious dark oolong.

Way of cooking

Slightly warm a small teapot by rinsing it with boiling water. Wash the leaves in the teapot with a small amount of hot water, and then drain the water. Brew the washed leaves for 30-40 seconds, then strain and pour into cups. As for brewing, it is recommended to use boiled mineral water cooled down to a temperature of 90–95°C based on 1 table spoon of tea per 200 ml. We recommend brewing leaves 2–3 more times.
