Shuixian is the most delicate yancha - rock tea. Its subtle minerality and low oxidation give its liquor a transparent golden hue, that shines in the cup and fills the air with a mesmerising floral aroma. A precious bouquet blooms at each infusion, but the main note that can be perceived is the warm purity of narcissus - the real meaning of the Chinese term Shuixian.
The Shuixian cultivar was originally from Guangdong, but it was brought to Fujian up to Wuyishan park, where it acquired its unique minerality and great complexity. To make this precious yancha variety, only the bud and the first 3 leaves are picked: they undergo a meticulous baking process which adds a light roasted note, that lingers in the air and in the palate.
Origin: Wuyishan, Fujian province Flush: Spring 2020 Storage: avoid heat, light, and moisture
