About This Product

Shui Xian is an oolong tea grown in the Wuyi Mountain region of Fujian, China. The tea is grown by second-generation tea farmer, Cindy Chen. Shui Xian is known for its amber red brew and its roasted, mineral, floral (orchid) quality. The leaves are plump and stand up well to long infusions. Most of the Shui Xian plants grown in Wuyishan are around 30-40 years old, as the cultivar gained popularity in the 1980s.

Available in a 50 gram pack.
