From Vicony Teas

Wuyi Oolong
Art No. WYA23. This tea is made of leaves picked
from tea trees more than 100 years old.

As the name implies, Wuyi rock tea grows in between the rocky cliffs of Mount Wuyi, which is known for its sheer precipices, overhanging rocks as well as gigantic valleys. The Potted Tea Plantation is realized by utilizing the rock valleys, rock cracks and constructing rock band alongside the edges. Wuyi rock tea got its name by only growing in between the rocky cliffs. Forfathers praised the Wuyi rock tea for its unique rock charm. Rock tea also pronounced Yan tea in Chinese means tea of strong flavor. It still remains one of the top ten Chinese tea.

According to the current national standard, being bred and planted in the natrual ecological invironment of Mount Wuyi, Wuyi rock tea falls into the category of Oolong tea produced with unique traditional processing techniques (shape of tea stripe) with rock charm. As a renowned tea it is under the protection of products of origin by PRC.

This is the first sample that Vicony Teas supplied for me (Thank you Vicony Teas!).
It in’t sold on their website, so I’m glad the company let me try it. They also supplied a number of other oolongs for me.

Leaf Quality:
The leaves of this tea were large and dark black to dark brown. They smelled of caramel and were toasty and floral. In my hand, the dried leaves felt as if they were wood charcoals; they were very light for their size. There was a slight hint of fruit in the handful of tea leaves.
When brewed, the leaves took on a peachy aroma. Some of the leaves revealed themselves to be a very dark green rather than black. After the second steeping, the toastiness had escaped the leaves, leaving behind a very fruity scent.

Brewed Tea:
I brewed the tea for 20 seconds with splendid results. The color was yellow-green and almost peachy in complexion. Toasty and sweet- those are the first two things that came to my mind when I took the first sip. The Oolong was surprisingly robust with flavor even with the small steep time. Toasty, sweet, and a bit peachy.
Second Steeping
The floral and fruit notes were enhanced this time. There wasn’t much toastiness in this brew. The tea finished with the slight taste of Jasmine, or another flower. However, the last sip is the only time I recognized the specific floral quality. Though not as toasty as the first, this was just as robust.
Third Steeping
This steeping smelled of roses. Very floral and a tiny bit of nuttiness.
Fourth Steeping
This brewing was even more floral than the third. However, the robustness of the first three brews had left a bit. The sips ended with a nice peachy finish.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to try this tea. It could have easily withstood further steepings. Thanks Vicony Teas!
