Wuyi Shui Xian is one of the most accessible Wuyi teas in the market, and it is commonly found on Chinese restaurants’ menus. The name of this tea means “Sacred Lilly” or “Water Goddess”, and as all our Wuyi rock teas, also Wuyi Shui Xian comes from 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.

The large, twisted leaves of Wuyi Shui Xian yield a golden brown infusion with a sweet caramel-like scent. The woody smokiness of the roasting is balanced out by the mildly floral character of this tea, and the brown sugar sweetness that is particularly noticeable in the aftertaste. This Wuyi tea is a bold and deep oolong, excellent to be served with a meal or chocolate-rich desserts. Due to the warming potency of Wuyi Shui Xian, it is perfect for the cold season as an every-day tea.

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 many years of experience in tea production.
