From Dazzle Deer

Zhang Ping Shui Xian is a unique tea in the oolong tea category due to it being prepared with a traditional pressing method. The tea’s name simply comes from its location and tea breed (Zhang Ping region, Shui Xian tea breed). Each cake is pressed into a square cake with a wooden mold and wrapped in white paper. This process still cannot be replaced by machine. An experienced worker can wrap up to150 cakes in an hour. The tea is lightly roasted inside of the wrap as the final step in the drying process.
If you like Tie Guan Yin or Taiwan oolong, Zhang Ping Shui Xian is a must-try. Our ‘Orchid’ Zhang Ping Shui Xian was harvested this spring. It has a very strong orchid aroma. The liquor is thick, full, and smooth, and has a bright orange color. The taste is mellow and flowery. Great for people who prefer highly fragrant teas.
Each cake is about 8-9 grams.

I’m not the biggest fan of floral oolongs, but this one is quite nice! Comes in a nice 8g “pillow” cake shape, leaves are a mix of green and brown. Brews a dark gold color. Very strong floral aroma. Flavor is honey, flowers, and raw green bean. Lasts a good number of infusions.
