From What-Cha

A smooth sweet tasting black tea with notes of malt, carob and raisins.

Zhangping Shui Xian is the only oolong tea which has traditionally been pressed into a cake, this pearl is a modern twist on an old classic by kneading the Shui Xian as a black pearl rather than an oolong cake.

Each pearl is roughly 10g in weight and comes in its own individual vacuum sealed packet.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth texture
- Sweet taste with notes of malt, carob and raisins

Origin: Nanyang village, Zhangping, Fujian, China
Produced: Spring 2015
Cultivar: Shui Xian
Sourced: From a specialist Zhangping seller

Brewing Advice:
- Heat water to roughly 95°C/203°F
- Use one pearl for a large teapot
- Brew for 15-30 seconds

Packaging: Each pearl is individually vacuum sealed in a packet

Yum! I wasn’t sure what to expect because a 30 second infusion didn’t seem like enough to me, but it was perfect! Smooth, earthy cocoa, and a wee bit of fruitiness that lingers. Second infusion (45 seconds) is more malty and earthy, perfect for what I was looking for this morning! Though I don’t know if I could get on board with using big balls like this regularly, they’re cute and fun for once and awhile though.
