Description

This is a modern blend that appeared on the market a few years ago: high roast shuixian and medium oxidation tieguanyin! While very low grade versions of this blend are served at dim sum places here in HK (and possibly in Guangdong), this is a higher quality offering for consumption at home. While I initially was very skeptical about this blend, it's grown on me, and one of my regulars in California bought some of this before I even put it on the site after trying a sample!

This Hong Kong family no longer offer this tea, and I only have a total of 600g left!


I brewed this tea this morning in a 50ml gaiwan (and drank from a 19ml cup, which I will put up shortly)! The warm, sweet and sour flavor and aromatics of the old school oxidation tieguanyin work very well with the classic HK roasty shuixian, with its distinctive aromatics and mineral finish. A HK tea blogger was served a lower grade of this blend with dim sum and was very confused by what he received, since this tea was introduced without any real introduction! Once this batch runs out, I may not offer this again, but it would be easy to blend your own if you'd like. This blend, however, is from one of HK's oldest businesses, and is a snapshot of local tea history!

I was surprised that the two cups of liquor you see were from the same infusion: the tea started off light, but was significantly darker when I got to the bottom of the pitcher! Distinctive notes of both the shuixian and tieguanyin arose at different times as I drank each infusion, which is definitely a very unique experience!

In the later infusions, I got a clear almond note and Medjool date as well, which is testament to the quality of the material used in this blend. This is definitely miles apart from the shuixian/TGY blends served at local Cantonese restaurants in 2018 and 2019!

This blend has plenty of longevity and makes for a great daily drinker in a large teapot or mug as well (at a price that won't break the bank). Most people outside HK (and perhaps most within HK!) don't know this kind of blend exists, so if you're curious about trying something a little different, I have six packs of this tea available!
