One of the best Shui Xians we have ever had! Deeply mineral and powerful. Woody and mossy with incense like notes- what is typical for good Shui Xian. But the most interesting are excellent notes of dried fruits and flowers. Like a good elegant perfumes.  

Roasted 4 times on our custom order.

Overall feeling: this is dark and deep tea with really strong energy and well pronounced “yan yun” (rock taste/flavor coming from the volcanic soil the bushes grow on).

Anyway whole 2020 harvest in Wuyishan seems to be really excellent.

This Shui Xian is roasted little bit stronger than 2019 one we had.

Roasting notes will mellow during next months of “resting”.

Origin: Lian Hua Feng (“lotus flower peak”), Zhengyan Protected Area, Wuyishan, Fujian, China.

Vintage: May 2020

Tea Varietal: Shui Xian

Age of tea trees: around 50-60 year old.



Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 6g/100ml.
Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 10 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing.
