Shui Xian Oolong Tea

Shui Xian Oolong Tea


(rating: 2.7 out of 5)

Shui Xian Oolong Tea or wu-long tea is a very popular variety of Oolong tea and one the common favorites among Gong Fu tea drinkers. Shui Xian Oolong Tea tea can be found in most Chinese restaurants menu, where the spelling "Shui Hsien" is more commonly used. Our Shui Xian originates from the high mountains of Wu Yi Shan and is organically grown. Oolong teas from Mount Wu Yi are also referred as Yan Cha or "Rock Tea" due to the rocky terrain where the tea plants grow. No flowers were necessary to scent this delicacy.

Price & Size :


Quantity :  

Other names:
Wu Yi Shui Xian, Shui Hsien, Water Fairy, Water Sprite, wulong, wu-long

Taste:
Strong and full-bodied Oolong tea with slightly roasted flavor.

Appearance:
Traditional looking Oolong tea, with dark and curly tea leaves.

Origin:
Wuyi Shan, Fujian Province

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Use about 2 - 3 grams (approx 1/10 oz) of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1-2 minutes for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.

 

I highly recommend this oolong!

This is a nice shui xian. I would pay the little bit more to go for the lao cong though. Still this one is worth a try for the price.

Not a very good example of Shui Xian .... Could not detect any of the usual flavor or aroma nuances of Shui Xian.
