This Shui Xian is an intriguing tale of time! It’s from the core production area in Wu Yi Shan known as “Yan Zi Ke” 燕子窠, or “Swallow Nest”, because of its geographical feature of a small valley being surrounded by rocks and formed a circular shape. This tea has not been re-roasted since 2009, but just left to be aged completely naturally. Shui Xian is one of the most internationally renowned Wu Yi Rock Tea varietals, and because of its particular delightful characters of caramel and brown sugar like sweetness, it ages really well as the roasting slowly fades away. Now it’s left with such complex layers of fragrances and taste with a strong Cha Qi. It can be steeped 10+ times by a Gaiwan and the brown sugar sweetness is still noticeable in the aftertaste.
Wu Yi Shan is located in northern Fu Jian province in China and it’s the cradle for the worldwide prestigious Wu Yi Rock Teas. The traditionally processed Wu Yi rock teas tend to be more roasted, and they are famous for their roasting, peanut/nutty, spiced and sometimes floral or mineral taste. Rock tea enthusiasts also talk often about or seek “Yan Yun” 岩韵 in a tea, which means the “Rhythm of Rock”, and it’s an abstract sensation of tea drinkers sensing the energy from the rock from a Wu Yi rock tea.
