Full Description 

Shui Xian is also one of the Dan Congs teas that has never been classified by fragrance and hence, it has its own category. Farmer Liu served this tea to us the first time we visited his farm in 2018, and he said "This is the Dan Cong you drink when you are tired of the other cultivars and just want to neutralize your palatte". Even though Dan Cong Shui Xian is not as floral or fruity as some other Dan Cong cultivars, it has a lovely mineral and woody taste to it. This is a charcoal roasted Shui Xian from this year's spring season, then charcoal roasted twice in August.

Cultivated in mineral rich soil, Phoenix Dan Cong thrives in the coastal environment in Canton province on Phoenix Mountain. Both wild and farmed, these tea trees can reach the ripe old age of 200 years. This special type of Oolong is recognized for its highly distinctive natural aroma that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma. Believed to be the ancestor of all Oolong teas, it’s well-known for its ten aromatic categories and its rich and complex flavor.
