Shui Xian (also called Shui Hsien)
Rare 20 Year Old Chinese Oolong Tea

Shui Xian tea is from the family of Wuyi Teas (also known as Cliff Tea or Rock Tea) which includes the famous Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) teas. The leaves are roasted every 5 years which deepens the complexity of the flavor. This 20 year old Shui Xian is very rare and very high quality, picked from a 100 year old tea bush! The leaves are dark in colour and are long and twisted. Because the leaves have been heavily roasted, this tea is very smooth and mellow with a bright golden colour and a soft, sweet taste. If you like Wuyi tea, this is a must!

Liu An Post-Fermented Tea Shun Yi Sun Factory - Spring 2005
Liu An tea is a famous tea originating in An Hui Province in China. This region has a long tradition of making post-fermented teas like their neighbors in Yunnan province who make Pu-Erh Tea. The manufacturing process is similar to Pu-Erh tea and Liu An is a much sought after favourite among tea connoisseurs.

This Liu An is was picked in the spring of 2005 and is made by Shun Yi Sun, the most popular and well-known manufacturer of Liu An tea. It is already very drinkable, with a light but long-lasting, flowery and fruity fragrance. The taste is rich, smooth and robust with hints of rice and nuts. The natural sweetness comes out instantly after sipping.

The fine leaves appear oily and shiny and have an even, dark green colour. They are packaged in the traditional woven bamboo basket and wrapped with large bamboo leaves for protection. Like all post-fermented teas, the taste will develop and improve as it ages. An excellent quality tea at an excellent price, this Liu An tea has become very popular at our tea shop due to its drinkability, smoothness and unique and complex taste.

Iron Buddha Oolong Tea
Rare 20 Year Old - Charcoal Roasted By Hand
Incredible Chocolate Taste!

This rare and traditional Oolong tea comes from a farmer’s private stock. As is common in the tea business in China, it took me many years of buying teas from him and many visits to his farm to convince him I was an earnest and worthy buyer. This tea has been stored since the early 1990’s and unlike inferior varieties roasted by machine, this tea has been carefully re-roasted by hand over charcoal every 3 years to enhance the aged flavour. The tea leaves are a semi-ball shape and are a dark brown colour.

The rinse has a bright pink/reddish colour. The first infusion has a light smoky flavour with an incredible chocolate taste that just has to be experienced! The aroma is rich and complex with deep fruity tones. Then an amazing, mouth tingling sensation bursts out from both sides of the tongue and also from the back of throat. Immediately afterwards, a strong sweet after-taste develops which moistens the palette.

Shou Mei White Tea Rare 20 Year Old
White teas are among the rarest of Chinese teas, made only for a few days every spring, with delicate tastes and aromas that are some of the most highly prized of all Chinese teas. It is unusual to find a high quality 20 year old Shou Mei (sho-MAY) anywhere. The leaves are carefully stored and as they age, they turn brown in colour, producing a robust, smooth and full bodied taste with a tantalizing aroma of fruit. Aging develops the famous plum taste which appears after 20 years. A rare find for white tea lovers!

Lapsang Souchong Black Tea Highest Quality from Tong Mu Guan
Lapsang Souchong black tea (also known as Wuyi Bohea) is the first black tea that was ever produced (known as Red Tea in China) centuries ago. It was first brought back to European countries by the Dutch in 1604 and rapidly became popular throughout the rest of Europe. Lapsang Souchong was so popular in Britain that trying to reproduce it inexpensively launched the British tea industry in India.

Our Lapsang Souchong is the highest quality from the Tong Mu Guan area in Xin Cun town in the Wuyi region of Fujian province. The farmers and factories in Tong Mu Guan are very famous and only produce a limited quantity of Lapsang Souchong for export. This tea has a dark amber colour and a seductive smoky fragrance. The taste is rich and thick with the fruity flavour of longan (a smaller relative of the lychee fruit).
