Oolong Tea

Wuyi Shui Xian

Our tea has a consistent plump slightly curled shape that is shiny brownish-emerald-green color. When steeped the leaves have a tender, shiny light emerald-green center with a vermilion dotted edge.

Shui Xian is named after the cultivar from which it is produced. The Shui Xian cultivar was first transplanted in Wuyi Shan in the 19th century and originated from the Shui Ji Lake area of Jian Yang County in the northern Fujian province. Its history goes back more than 1,000 years.

The Shui Xian tea tree’s exceptional quality and high yield characteristics greatly improved after being transplanted in Wuyi Shan, most notably because of the area’s exceptional environment.
