origin: china

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

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

      At first it was difficult to brew this correctly, but I found that using a high leaf to water ratio at around 180F brings out the smooth sweetness underlying an almost smoky rock/mineral flavor. It has a hint of spiced apricots in the aroma, and the smell of wet rocks after it rains. Really interesting tea.

      Extremely Lovely! One of my favorites! I make this in huge batches. Its even good iced (I know, sinful..) A lovely smooth richness. Nice and earthen. Mineraly. Everything I adore in a good tea.

      Lovely, earthy, smoky, rich smoothness! I can't commend this one enough for being absolutely decadent and delicious.

      This is a nice, basic oolong tea. There's no fluff added here - no flavoring - just the pure taste of tea. In that, it shines.

      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.
