Type: Wuyi Rock Oolong
Production area: Wuyi Mountain, Fujian Province, China
Shui Xian is one of the major cultivars of Wuyi Rock Oolong. This aged Shui Xian was produced and aged in Wuyi Shan. After a decade of aging, this tea tastes woodsy and reminds me of Chinese herbs and aged tangelo peels. The smell of the wet leaves reveals mineral notes. What is impressive about this tea is its long "hui gan"
(a cooling sensation in your mouth). Very relaxing, this tea offers a gentle and warming "qi"
Use 6-8g of leaves per 6 oz of water. Rinse with 195 degree F water prior to brewing. Follow the suggested steeping time below.
