Weird… the bag says 1TB/5oz water and the website says 6. Oh well. I’ll go w/ 5oz.

The raw leaf smells very earthy and complex, although not fecal like cooked pu erh. Aroma is almost that of a hojicha or gen mai cha which kinda scares me… The liquore is a pretty reddish.

While there are some similarities between this and the toastyness of hojicha and gen mai cha, it isn’t as strong and is smoother and sweeter. The toastyness isn’t my cuppa, but for those that enjoy it shui xian is a great oolong to try.
