SUMMARY 

Type: Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea
Cultivar: Shui Xian (水仙) 
Origin: Wuyi Mountains, Fujian China

Woody, minerals, floral

A Rock tea with a delicate floral aroma that captures your attention and doesn’t let up. With a light to medium roast, this Rock tea makes for a great introduction to the world of Wuyi Rock tea and is a great daily drinker.


TASTING NOTES

An aromatic, floral flavour, with light woody notes combine with the characteristic wet-stone minerality that Wuyi Rock teas are well known for. 

PREPARATION NOTES

The best way to enjoy Wuyi Rock tea is using the traditional Gongfu brewing such as Gaiwan or Yixing tea pot. We recommend using a greater leaf to water ratio, quicker steeps and brewing the tea at higher temperatures (approx. 93 degrees)However, all of these teas still tastes great when brewed in a teapot, western style.

Gaiwan Gong-Fu style (preferred method)

Leaf weight 5g per 150ml of water
 95 degrees Celsius
 5 – 10 secs per infusion* (up to 8 infusions)

*First infusion is a quick 3 – 5 sec rinse and isn't drunk.

 

Oolong teapot Teapot steep

Leaf weight 5g per 300ml of water
Water temperature 95 degrees Celsius
Time 2mins (2 – 3 infusions)

 

STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
