Description:

"Shui Xian" (also spelled Shui Hsien) - narcissus or water sprite

This great and rare oolong - Zhangping Shui Xian oolong, named after the fragrance similar with daffodil, created in 1914. Zhangping is a famous place for Shui Xian oolong tea which is very different in manner and taste from Wuyi Shui Xian.

Zhangping Shuixian cake is the only kind of pressed oolong tea. This charcoal roasted Shuixian cake is orthodox type product. Picking fresh leaves from late September to early October and there are eight steps must be done over the half month production period. Compared with faint scent Shuixian, This one took longer time to roast. Our supplier Mr. Wang came from a tea family. He told us the craft of making Shuixian oolong has been passed down over five generations.

Clean and strong aromatic tea soup, rich and round with sweet fresh gui hua (osmanthus) and lotus flavor. This tea can brewed many times. Very good tea for gong fu tea ceremony!

Quotes - Oolong


„I found my early blogging efforts, basically writing down my impressions of the tea I drank every day, to be a worthwhile exercise – it helps me process what I’ve had and what I thought, and once in a while I go back to my own ideas back then and realize how I have developed as a drinker, as well as how a tea may have changed over time. Many of my earlier perceptions are flawed, if not outright wrong, or at least have been modified over time by my experiences since then. Writing about it constantly here helps me work through those thoughts.“

Quotes

„The terms "Xiao shu" (small tree) and "tai di" (terrace plantation) are often interchangeably used, but they should be given separate meanings. "Tai di" connotes high intensity farming, with the entire slope cleared & terraced to plant hedgerows & use of pesticide & fertilizer. But in many gu shu growing villages, there are also new tea plantations which are too young to be called gu shu (ie. less than 100 years old), but they aren't exactly "tai di" either. Many of these plants are growing next to old trees, in a bio-diverse forest clearing, with lots of space around them, not all are sprayed & fertilized. In the future, they will grow into "gu shu", until then we should call them "shen tai xiao shu" (naturally grown small trees)“
