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 tea trees over 50 years old which are the youngest of all his Shui Xians.  This tree produces a tea with a beautiful strong aroma of chocolate with flowery accents, almost of orchids.  It has an espresso like taste. It is light and very pleasant tasting.  

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

Made by:  It was made by Tea Master Zhou from tea trees over 50 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.
