Details

The Wuyi rock oolong Rou Gui acquired its name from the Chinese cinnamon plant (Rougui in Chinese) due to its warm cinnamon like aroma. Wuyi rock teas are a group of oolongs produced in the Wuyi Mountains in the North-West of Fujian Province, China. The rock teas (or Yan Cha in Chinese) are famous for their mineral character that comes from growing in the rocky soil of Wuyi Mountains.

Rou Gui has dark twisted leaves that produce a golden brown infusion. This tea has a bittersweet character with the signature cinnamon aroma. The woody smokiness of the roasting is balanced out by the warmed sugar and honey notes that are particularly noticeable in the aftertaste. Don’t forget to smell the lid of your teapot after making a brew – the sweet aroma will be more concentrated there.

Rou Gui is slightly less roasted than most Wuyi Oolongs and therefore has a milder warming potency. Yet it is still a good choice of tea for cool and rainy weather, as well as serving tea with food.

Our Wuyi oolongs are prepared by the Master Wu family. We’ve chosen this tea producer because of their highly skilled and authentic technique and the long years of experience.
