Shui Xian

One of my favourite cultivars and one of my favourite teas, Shui Xian has a special place in my heart! I found this Shui Xian was wonderfully processed having a gentlemanly flavour, delivered evenly throughout many infusions. The stoic granite flavour is wonderfully combined with lilac fragrance and the sweetness of mildly sweetened cereal grains. Later infusions reveal hints of cinnamon and deepening rock flavours.
