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!
