Discover the captivating allure of Shuixian, a distinguished Wuyi Rock Oolong from Fujian province, revered for its deep, robust flavor profile. Known also as “Narcissus Oolong,” Shuixian is a celebration of the ancient art of Chinese tea-making.

This tea undergoes a moderate oxidation process, around 40 to 60 percent, which enhances its characteristically rich and woody notes. The leaves are dark and slightly twisted, embodying the rugged terrain of the Wuyi Mountains from which they are harvested.

Upon brewing, Shuixian releases an enthralling aroma of matured wood with subtle hints of sweet floral undertones, reminiscent of its namesake, the Narcissus flower. The liquor is a clear, deep amber color, offering a complex flavor profile that expertly balances earthiness with a sweet, long-lasting finish that gently hints at spice.
