Shui Xian, which translates to "Water Sprite," is an oolong produced in a similar style to Wuyi Oolongs. Therefore they share some similar traits, such as peachy-honey notes and a mineral "rock taste." This high-fired, medium grade version results in a rich tasting amber colored cup with the nuances of minerals, apricots and spice. Great for an everyday oolong option. Steep at 195°F for 2-3 minutes

      Great oolong tea with nice spicy notes. Dry leaf smells slightly smoky to me. Nice daily drinker for me, and even better when brewed gongfu-style in a gaiwan. Just play with higher leaf-to-water ratios.
