Shuixian Wuyi Yancha Zhuli
The Zhuli Shuixian Yancha hails from Zhuli, a small village in the Wuyi Mountain in China’s Fujian province. Zhuli village surrounded by the high mountains, at an average altitude above 600 meters, is a great place to produce Yancha. Although traditionally Zhuli Shuixian isn’t being considered as Zhengyan Yancha, while some top Zhuli Shuixian can even compete with Zhengyan Yancha Shuixian in taste and flavor. The exquisite Zhuli Shuixian was made of the top three to four leaves on the branch by an experienced tea manufacturer. After wilting and bruising the leaves, they are hand-rolled into their final shape. When brewed, these dark green-brown tea leaves create an amber infusion with an exquisite floral fragrance that complements the tea’s sweetness. The taste is smooth and lightly sweet, with a subtle dryness reminding of pear skin, followed by a lightly baked aftertaste. The Zhuli Shuixian Oolong can be infused up to six times, with each infusion revealing a new nuance of this tea’s complex flavor.
