Wuyi Oolong Oolong Tea


The Origin Story

Oolong teas are at the heart of the Chinese Gong Fu tea tradition. The Oolong teas produced in the mineral-rich soils of Wuyi are proudly abundant in flavour and complexity. There are numerous Wuyi Oolongs made from different varieties of the tea plant - each offer a unique nuance of flavour, masterfully teased out by the tea makers who produce them.

Nearly all Wuyi Oolongs share the qualities of gentle warmth through their deep roasting, lifted by sweetness and high fruit-like notes. Their production requires masterful control of many subtle stages, to produce their final balanced flavours. This season’s Wuyi Oolong is Water Sprite (Shui Xian) – rich and autumnal with fragrant notes of rose and peach. Its smooth texture, without a hint of bitterness, makes this is a great entry level tea to not only Wuyi oolongs, but the darker oolongs China has to offer.

China - Fujian

Fujian is home to some of the world's best oolongs, white and black teas

The steep, rocky mountains of Wuyi in Fujian are the home of this famous tea. Wuyi is renowned for producing what many would argue are the world's best oolong and black teas.

    Smooth warmness
    This nice example of Shui Xian has everything you would expect from a good Wuyi oolong. The rule is multiple infusion, since it's the best way to experience the complexity of this kind of tea.The first infusion is pure warmness. The roasted flavour and the clear orange colour are very suggestive of a fireplace. it's very comforting and it envelopes your tongue in sweetness and you would not find the refreshing bitterness of fresh oolongs.Next infusions have a milder roasty taste while a subtle sweet floral note emerges slightly. This is the very beauty of this tea and it's what makes Wuyi oolong teas so surprising.
