Old tea trees, generally more than 50 years old are referred to as old Bush or Lao Cong.
This Old Bush Shui Xian although grown in Zhang Ping, is processed in the Wuyi Roasted Oolong style.
Grown in the unique Zhang Ping terroir, this tea has not lost its unique orchid aroma from its own variety but developed an interesting woody afternote that lingers pleasantly making you feel relax like sitting in a fireplace in winter. This cultivar, if compressed into tiny tea bricks, is the Zhang Ping Shui Xian.
With notes of roasted, caramel, milk honey, the flavour deepens as it ages.
Packed in 5 x 8g in tea caddy
