Shuixian is the most delicate yancha - rock tea. Its subtle minerality, given by banyan area, and its low roasting give its liquor a bright golden hue, that shines in the cup and fills the air with a mesmerizing 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. 

Shuixian cultivar is one of the most suitable for the aging process. It was originally cultivated in Guangdong, and was later brought to Fujian up to Wuyishan park, where it acquired its unique minerality and great complexity.
