Water Sprite
Water Sprite

Origin:  China
Estate:  Fujian Province
Quick Description:  Shui Xian Cultivar

One of the famous Rock Teas of this mystical region, so called due to the rocky terrain in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province. This dark oxidized Oolong, due to heavy roasting, introduces itself with deep, smoky aroma. Caramelized undertones mellow into delicate floral notes & lingering sweetness. The large, twisted leaves of deep greenish brown color are pan-fired then dried. Although not charcoal finished as are the most costly of Rock Teas, this Water Sprite will not disappoint. Be sure to prepare several cups, each will reveal surprising new flavors.
