Description

I've been waiting for this vendor to get more of this shuixian in! This is a classic shuixian that hasn't been reroasted in Hong Kong to the high level that shuixian drinkers here are accustomed to. This is from the same family as the very popular Classic Hong Kong Shuixian (now sold as Grade 1). The taste profile of this tea indicates it was grown, processed and stored in a very similar manner. This tea is much more economical than the Grade 1 Classic Shuixian, but is different and enjoyable in its own way! I have been waiting for the vendor to restock this tea for a while, and I'm glad they got more in. I get the feeling I've been steered away from this tea because of its lower price point, and after trying it, I see why! It definitely isn't as refined or complex as the Grade 1 tea, but this is still an excellent tea and surprisingly good value. 


I now offer shuixians at all price points, and this tea really hits above its weight class! This is well worth trying and comparing to the Everyday Shuixian and the Classic Shuixian (Grade 1).

The dry leaf has milk chocolate notes from the roast, which are very pleasant. This tea isn't sold with an age specification, but it is several years old, and has developed aged notes like the Grade 1 shuixian. There is more astringency and bitterness in this tea than the Grade 1 in the first few infusions, but also surprising huigan. There is a note here that I know is familiar, but can't put my finger on, but I'll keep trying this tea in the hopes of identifying the note!

Please note: most traditional Hong Kong tea merchants do not offer discounts on volume until I am purchasing several kilograms at a time, and in some cases, no discounts are offered at all, even for ten kilos of a single tea or more. For this reason, I cannot offer a discount on larger purchases at this time.
