This is a luxurious and very unique Wuyi Mountain Oolong tea from Fujian region. The long wiry dark leaves impart a rich, honey-like fragrance and a complex yet subtle flavour combinations. This exclusive black oolong is delightfully light and smooth with creamy and fruity undertones and creates a beautiful light-amber hue.
Wuyi is a mountain range in the Fujian province of China. The Wuyi mountain soil is rich in minerals and imparts a mature flavour complexity to the tea. Since 1999, the mountains have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of their highly valued culture, aesthetics and biodiversity. Many Oolong and Black teas are produced in this area. The Shui Xian variety of Wuyi oolong is also known as Narcissus - named after the character from Greek Mythology who feel in love with his own reflection.
