Product Code: R-OP112D


One of the oldest varietals of tea plants used for oolong, Shui Xian or “Water Immortal” is found in all 4 oolong producing regions - Wuyi Mt., Anxi, Taiwan, and the Phoenix Mountains.  Genetic drift and localized breeding have given the regional breeds of Shui Xian very distinct characters over the intervening centuries.  Our Phoenix Shui Xian is heavily oxidized and roasted by tea master A Long of Chaozhou.  It has a deep, robust mineral taste with a restrained abundance of fruit and flower notes hidden beneath the roasted surface flavor.  Unlike most Phoenix oolongs, Shui Xian ages well; this is the 2017 vintage and its two years of age and repeated roasts have given it a rich flavor and exceptionally strong, heady qi.  It yields a deep red gold liquor.  An excellent tea for oolong aficionados.
