Shui Xian is a tea characterized by a gentle balance between a floral scent and a base woody fragrance. A slight astringency and clean charcoal roast are well balanced by the returning sweetness of this tea.
The 2017 Shui Xian was charcoal roast at the start of August, 2017. As of writing (September-October 2017) the roast is still fresh, but not overpowering. I consider this tea ready to enjoy now.Update: The packaging has changed. We are currently shipping the white bags with gold trim. The silver bags are no longer available.
