From Tong Xin She Teahouse

In July 2019, I took Yan, a good friend of Poland, to visit my Uncle Wu’s tea garden. Today, I share with you my Uncle Wu’s Shui Xian. The place of origin is Wu San Di. What kind of village is Wu San Di? In the spring of 1681, Wu San GUI’s report of pacification and rebellion in Yunnan Province heralded the real coming of the Great Qing Dynasty. The three brothers of Wu family fled and came to this valley. This place is located under the roof of Huanggang mountain, with an average altitude of 800 meters, which is very suitable for reclusion. After a simple discussion, the three brothers decided to stay here. At that time, the three brothers of Wu family had no economic source, so they had to live in the valley They planted pure Shui Xian tea trees to live on. This kind of tea closely linked the warmth of more than 300 years with the descendants of Wu family. Later descendants all took the surname Wu, which is why people in Uncle Wu village are surnamed Wu. Wu San Di is the best-preserved pure land in Wuyi Mountain, with high altitude and ecological environment. Tea garden sea It’s more than 800 meters long, surrounded by mountains, with rich vegetation, dense streams at the foot of the mountain, surrounded by clouds all year-round, and due to the lack of sunshine and many other factors, the quality of tea is very good.

CHARACTERISTICS: Today’s Wu San Di’s Shui Xian is picked in spring 2018, roasted once in June, roasted once in November, roasted once in May 2019, and now, this Shui Xian’s tea has preserved the soup has the taste of green moss and the flavor of mountains. The entrance is very sweet and lasting. In order to let you experience the taste of Wu San Di Shui Xian, I decided to use 15kg to do this activity.

Wu San Di Shui Xian, TXS tea
7.7g (sachet said 8.3g, so guess my scale is off or something, I’m not sure. Have been less mindful of 1:15 general ratio lately because when I do follow it I’m never sure when to use the remaining 2g or whatever of leaf), 100 mL gaiwan, Brita, 212f

dry leaves don’t have much smell

leaves in prewarmed gaiwan have a roasted and bread-like smell

wet leaves have a strong smoke w sweet undertones of dark chocolate and berry

5s: slightly thick. woody medicinal notes w/ slight sweetness that remind me of cinnamon. slight cooling minty aftertaste

another 5s: similar to initial, but a touch stronger mint aftertaste

12s: slight bitter and roast more upfront before moving to a minty aftertaste

25s: starting to lose steam. a touch of sweetness + toastiness w mint aftertaste and a touch of something like soap

1min: lighter but finishes w a bright mint note and something higher that I can’t distinguish

2min: light medicinal woody notes + roast hint

5min: seems to have regained strength. bitterness like a coffee that turns into a soapy note of sorts.

10 min: roasted bitter note and soapy aftertaste. hint of mint

20 min + one last steep of indefinite hours length: not much left to note. would usually cold brew, but the last time I tried that with a TXS tea it tasted like straight soap.

overall, nothing too exciting, fairly standard shui xian profile. I guess this validates the legitimacy of the shui xian that was a gift that I tried before and thought was fake because of the lack of sweetness and rather medicinal/woody profile. Descriptions online of whatever is supposed to constitute a “classic” shui xian messed up my expectations
