From Chawangshop

“Shui Xian” (also spelled Shui Hsien) – narcissus or water sprite

This great and rare oolong – Zhangping Shui Xian oolong, named after the fragrance similar with daffodil, created in 1914. Zhangping is a famous place for Shui Xian oolong tea which is very different in manner and taste from Wuyi Shui Xian.

Zhangping Shuixian cake is the only kind of pressed oolong tea. This charcoal roasted Shuixian cake is orthodox type product. Picking fresh leaves from late September to early October and there are eight steps must be done over the half month production period. Compared with faint scent Shuixian, This one took longer time to roast. Our supplier Mr. Wang came from a tea family. He told us the craft of making Shuixian oolong has been passed down over five generations.

Deep yellow liquor with caramel aroma, round, mild, toasty without any astringent or bitter taste. A small bag of tea can be brewed for a whole day.

This tea is very good for long term storage.

i got just one small mini brick with my recent order. it looks so cute. i had to brew the whole thing around 10g. it was hard to separate and i didnt want to break those gorgeous full long leaves.
To my surprise it wasnt heavy roasted at all. But it was pleasant despite that im not huge fan of floral notes. its very fragrant and sweet, not bitter at all.
I may get more of these. They all vacuum packed and i think it will be nicer with takeouts than green tea. Green tea i find finicky even though i have a variable kettle. they do get bitter no matter how careful I am.
You can steep this brick forever and it doesnt go bitter.
