Old Tree Shui Xian Yencha (Cliff Tea)


With complex flavors of fresh mineral spring water, lychee, and wild-flowers, this ethereal tea helps one to access subtler dimensions of feeling. The delicate dry leaves feel like freshly fallen snow with aromas of tropical fruit and a pronounced roast. The golden liquor yields a flavorful brew like vapor and light, with new subtleties arising in the third and fourth steepings. The energy (cha qi) is refined and comfortable, rising through the body.

Origin: Wu Yi Mountains - Fujian Province, China 2023

Offering comes from Indigenous, old-growth Wuyi Mountain trees, masterfully hand-processed in the centuries-old traditional method. This processing brings out the true spirit of Wuyi Mountain, an area with the perfect terroir for this very special tea. This varietal was named "Shui Xian" or "Water Fairy" because the original tree was found beside an ancient Taoist temple where a water fairy protected the spring and offered the healing waters that nourished the roots of the tea plant.
