“Shui Xian” (also spelled Shui Hsien) - narcissus or water sprite
This great and rare oolong – Zhangping Shui Xian oolong, named after the fragrance similar with daffodil, created in 1914. Zhangping is a famous place for Shui Xian oolong tea which is very different in manner and taste from Wuyi Shui Xian. the fermentation of Zhangping Shui Xian is lighter.

This great and rare Shui Xian oolong is made by traditional manner and press to small square cake about 18-19g. This is famous and traditional method which is specific to Zhangping.
The highest quality tea leaves – picked two buds one leaf and two buds two leaves in spring 2006. The fermentation is light and medium roasted.

Fragrant infusion has a beautiful yellow-brown colour like honey, very smooth, sweet and little spicy with narcissus aroma. In some tastes is similar with Dong Fang Mei Ren oolong.

Traditional packaged printed with the words “Huang Jin Ji, Fujian Zhangpin authentic Shui Xian Cha Bing”. This tea is very good for long term storage.

The tea was packaged in a small bag, which was encased in an ornate silk bag.

Leaf Quality:
The leaves of this Oolong were lightly compressed into a small square brick. I was able to remove every leaf whole by gently wiggling the brick. The leaves were dark green and black, with some white tips showing. The brewed tea smelled very fruity. It reminded me of plum, blueberries, and perhaps a citrus.

Brewed Tea:
The brewed tea smelled fruity and floral. The brew’s color was a light golden-brown. The tea’s flavor was very delicate. It was sweet, floral, and fruity. The aftertaste was long-lasting between sips, and tasted of honey.
Second Steeping
This brew tasted more fruit-like, both during sips and in the aftertaste. A hint of smokiness was also present.

This was a very light and fruity Oolong.
