Description

This is the best of the high roast shuixian I got in Bangkok! This tea is sold by one of the oldest Thai-Chinese tea businesses in Bangkok, and is the highest grade of shuixian they carry. The family have been in the tea business for three generations. This tea is unlike any other shuixian I've ever tried. I'm not sure if this is an old proprietary blend of one or more Wuyicha types or just a unique varietal, but if it is a blend, I can't detect which varietal, or varietals, may have been included. The aroma is alluring, like dates and cinnamon, but the cinnamon note is not at all like rougui. There is also almond in the finish, which is a classic flavor note in high grade Wuyicha, and even the best classic tieguanyin. This is an expensive high roast shuixian, but with character and flavor that is alluring enough that I was very happy to pay the price! This tea is definitely outside the reach of many Thais.

This company started off selling shuixian, and have sold it for generations, even as the family have branched off into selling other teas. I really like this tea, and there's so much more going on here than I was able to detect in Bangkok when the tea was brewed for me. Now that I can brew this tea myself at my leisure, I can get a proper sense of what this tea has to offer. The liquor is very smooth, with a long lasting flavor and huigan, and there is even an orange finish in infusion two. I was very surprised by the quality of this tea when I tried it, and I can't get over how unique it is from anything I've ever tried. If you enjoy classic high roast Wuyicha, this is definitely one to try!

I only have four 50g packs of this tea at this time.

Brewing suggestion: Use good quality water of appropriate hardness. Fill a teapot or gaiwan to 50% fill. Flash rinse, and then flash infuse, prolonging each infusion by fifteen seconds.

Wholesale quantities of this tea are available on request.
