Shui Xian is a popular tea in China and abroad. Lower grades are often served in cantonese restaurants worldwide. It’s also known in another Chinese dialect as ‘Shui Hsien’. The name literally means ‘Water Sprite’ but is also often known as ‘Water Fairy’ or ‘Narcissus’.
The flavours and aroma’s of our Shui Xian is wonderfully layered. A traditional gongfu preparation with an Yixing teapot or gaiwan would be the most suitable for this tea.
Tea lovers are often lost in the world of tea due to the endless amount of tastes. The flavour of this Shui Xian is, however, very pronounced. It’s one of those teas that you’ll remember.
