From Nannuoshan

ORIGIN: Da Wang Feng, Wuyishan, Fujian, China
MEANING: Golden water turtle (shui jin gui)
CULTIVAR: Shui Jin Gui
HARVEST TIME: Spring 2017
TASTE: Roasted zucchini, green apple, subtly caramelized
ROASTING: Twice at 120°C

One of the Si Da Ming Cong, or ‘four famous bushes’, the most renowned of Wuyi Yan Cha cultivars, Shui Jin Gui defies its characteristic roasting with a distinct note of uncooked fruit, like fresh green apples, sugarcane, or juicy plums. Yet neither does it disappoint the lover of Rock Teas: its twisted, charcoal-coloured leaves give off a charcoal taste, evoking grilled zucchini and a subtle scent of caramel and cream in the wet leaves. This tea has been stored in the Nannuoshan warehouse for three years in order to smooth down the roasting for a balanced taste; now it’s time to enjoy it!

The perfect tea for demanding connoisseurs that enjoy drinking a balanced Yan Cha while imagining themselves perched atop tall Fujian cliffs.

This one is a very pleasant rock oolong that I could even drining semi-regularly. Besides the well-integrated taste profile, I also like its sticky, fatty texture and strong body presence it induces.

The aroma reminds me of brownies, cherries and orange, while the taste is bready and bitter with notes of licorice, coffee, and apples. The aftertaste further brings flavours such as honey and cola to the mix.
