Lao Cong Shui Xian Oolong


You are first greeted by the woody aroma that is reminiscent of walking in a forest after a spring rain. The deep caramel color liquor produces a medium to full-bodied brew with a bright astringency and lingering finish. This rich and complex roasted oolong has slightly sweet hints of fig with undertones of narcissus flower.

Lao Cong Shui Xian is a Wuyi Rock Tea made from old trees of Shui Xian cultivar. Shui Xian is translated as Water Sprite or Narcissus and Lao Cong means old bush. While Shui Xian is a common varietal in Wuyi, the traditional process of making this oolong is quite complicated. The tea is grown in three areas of Wuyi, Huiyuan KengWu San Di, and Jianyang Shufang. The tea trees were originally planted by farmers many years ago.   Lao Cong Shui Xian grows slower than younger tea plants, this allows its tea leaves to accumulate minerals and develop a deep fragrant flavor.
