Aroma/Color/Taste: Rou Gui literally means cassia, relating to cinnamon.  As a whole Rou Gui’s have a fruity aroma and flavor that mixes well with the roast.  Rou Guis are drier and on the woodsier side of oolongs.  

This Rou Gui of Master Zhou is lighter than Master Zhou’s Horsemeat Rou Gui.  It is a medium roast with a fruity smell, sweet and lingering cocoa-espresso after taste.  This tea is not as sweet or full as his Horsemeat.  But, if you prefer something a bit lighter, with all the character of a Rou Gui, this is a great tea.

Location:  This Rou Gui comes from the inner circle upper mountain, True Cliff area of Wuyi Mountain.  Wuyi Mountain is in the northwest province of Fujian in southeast China. 

Made by:  It was made by Tea Master Zhou from tea trees about 30+ 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.  Fill about 1/3 of your teapot or gaiwan with the leaves.
