Aroma/Color/Taste:  Shui Xian is the bigger leafed tea of the oolongs.  Shui Xians are smooth with a  long after taste, and slightly dry finish coming from the rock mineral. 

This tea was made from Master Zhou’s 75-80 year old trees.  The older the tree the meatier the tea.  This tea has a burst of complex flavors of cocao and chocolate, but not bitter, with a medium roast.  It is velvet smooth, and robust.   You’ll enjoy every infusion as the energy from the old tree becomes your own.

Location:  This is from the inner circle, upper center, of Wuyi Mountain in the Zhengyan area.

Made by:  It was made by Tea Master Zhou from tea trees about 75-80 years old.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first brew to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final brews.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot and spring or filtered water.
