This Shui Xian comes from bushes that are more than 100 years old, hence the name ‘Lao Cong Shui Xian’ where ‘Lao Cong’ means ‘old bushes’ in chinese. The name ‘Shui Xian’ was given because the original bushes was found beside a ‘Zhu Xian’ (blessing god) Temple.
The medium roasting of the Shui Xian gives the tea a light yet thick and rich body with a lingering aftertaste. As the tea ages, the roast flavour subsides and the characteristic mellow, sweet orchid fragrance becomes more pronounced.
