Right from the beginning, this Wu Yi Shui Xian shows that it is processed the traditional way. The dry leaves features a sweet and acidic fragrances and have a nice coat of white frost all over. After a quick wash, the dark leaves turns to a very dark green showing that they have undergone a more heavy fermentation and baking. there is a hint of acidity and charcoal in the sweet fragrant. The tea liquor is light amber with a medium thick and acidic texture and shows a very nice and natural flowery fragrance after 2 or 3 brews. The tea leaves a long and sweet aftertaste with a fresh sensation. This Wu Yi Shui Xian was heavily fermented and baked with Charcoal thus making it a oolong fit to be stored for a few years. When storing oolong tea with the though of opening it a few years later, it is best to use a porcelain canister and make sure it is airtight. We do not recommend to use Yi Xing canister as those are porous and in just a few months, or a year, the tea will have lost a lot of fragrance.
