Water Sprite Shui Xian | Oolong Tea
Description: This is a darker oolong from southern Fujian, China. These hand-made leaves produce a dark, sweet aroma (think black plums). The steeped cup is medium to full-bodied and complex with flavor notes that range from toasty, sweet, mineral, and stone fruit.
This rock oolong from the Wuyi Mountains is made from the Shui Xian (Water Immortal) cultivar. Compared to other common styles of rock oolong like Big Red Robe and Rou Gui, this tea is softer, sweeter, and more subtle.
