Shui Jin Gui - 2017 Zheng Yan Wuyi Oolong Loose Leaf Tea
Our 2017 Zheng Yan
Shui Jin Gui Oolong Tea (also called Golden Water Turtle) comes from a small, family owned tea garden in the mountains of Wuyi. Called a rock tea, or yancha, because the tea trees grow in the shallow soil atop rock with high mineral content. Called a zheng yan tea because it grows inside the protected Dahongpao Scenic Area. Water flowing down the mountain to the trees brings even more minerals and gives the teas an amazing and unique flavor. Zheng yan teas are rare and highly sought after.
One of the Four Famous Oolongs, it was harvested from 40+ year old trees on the Zhong Gu Yan cliff inside the national reserve, this loose leaf Shui Jin Gui was processed completely by hand except for sorting. It has been medium roasted 4 times over lychee charcoal which produces no smoke and adds no flavor. A clean, floral, dark chocolate flavor.
