From Whispering Pines Tea Company

These mini oolong bricks come from the Fujian province of China, and are made with the shui xian (translation: water faerie) varietal of tea. They are triple bagged, first in a paper wrapper, then plastic, and finally vacuum sealed. This ensures the absolute freshest tea possible!

These tiny bricks pack a big flavor! I like to describe them as tasting like flowers steeped in butterscotch and cream. They lack bitterness and astringency and they seem to steep forever!

This is the highest grade of these available. Because they are so rich and steep so long, I like to break them in half and get two sessions out of them. Each brick is just under 1/4 ounce. Price is per brick.

2017 harvest.

Cool, slick mineral-pear sweetness. Very floral perfume with gardenias, vanilla, sweet pea and lilac. Some roasted almond and baked bread provide deeper notes. Creamy bulb flowers like narcissus and lily in the aftertaste. Cooling and drying in the mouth, warming in the body. Strong zoning out and calm followed by a caffeine rush. Plenty of longevity brewed gongfu with longer steep times. This was the best Zhangping Shuixian oolong I’ve had.
