    Like it.

    I'd say without a shadow of doubt I know nothing about tea. I thought you bought in boxes of 240 and had it with milk and sugar. Recently got introduced to Oolong teas, and the process of infusions. This is lovely. Fully recommended.

    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.
