From Dragon Tea House

Oolong tea grows in Fujian province of China. There is a big mountain called: Wuyi Mountain in the northern Fujian province. On the rocks of this mountain grows some good teas. These teas are called: Wuyi Mountain Rock Oolong Tea, or, Wuyi Mountain Cliff Oolong Tea. Nowadays Wuyi rock oolong tea is more famous for its Weight Loss effect.

Gua Zi Jin is named after its appearance as the dry leaves are narrow and small which looks like melon seeds. This tea is a very rare, distinctive, complex oolong tea that comes from the Wuyi Mountains located in the northwest part of the Fujian province of China. The leaves are dark, and there is a classic deep chocolate aroma, with the slightest hint of tropical fruit and spice. This yan cha imparts a roasted mineral flavour, with a sweet aftertaste and no bitterness. The distinct taste has a full bodied flavour with an floral fragrance. Multiple infusions continue to offer Oolong flavour with a silky smooth aftertaste. These are spring leaves plucked from a rare ancient tree in Wuyi mountain, a remarkable and enjoyable oolong you can find in Dragon Tea House only! Brewing Guide: Note the following key features of this tea, Tea-Water Ratio: 1:4 Water Temperature: 100°C Steeping Time: 30-45 seconds Number of Infusions: 6-8 Use a Yixing teapot to bring out the best in our Wuyi Rock tea. Combine properly. It is the right combination of tea leaves, water temperature and brewing time. that results in a good cup of tea. Keep in mind that Kung Fu Cha offers an advantage over other brewing – higher water temperature.

7g / 120ml Yixing pot.
wash/25s/+15 per steeping.

Clear wuyi oolong taste. Somewhat like da hong pao but a little less intense, milder with more of a floral note. But still it is highly oxidized. Lighter roast.
Nice but VERY expensive. I will stick to da hong pao i think.
