Shui Xian Wuyi Oolong Tea


  • Shui Xian is a hand-made roasted oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China. The characters of Shui Xian mean ‘water’ and ‘immortal’ respectively, and this is usually translated as ‘Water Sprite’; the tea comes from a cultivar of the same name. Grown in the mineral-rich soil beneath the towering cliffs of the Wuyi Mountains, Wuyi oolong has earned the nickname ‘Yancha’, meaning Rock Tea. Wuyi oolong bears little resemblance to the well-known green oolongs from southern Fujian and Taiwan, such as Ti Kuan Yin. While green oolongs are light and fragrant, Wuyi oolongs have an intensely rich and complex flavour.
