Shui Xian Charcoal Roasted Black Tea


SKU: shui-xian-black-tea Categories: ,


Shui Xian grown in Taiwan is a difficult tea to obtain due to small harvest and insect infestation.
Shui Xian has a large body, with a light floral tone and fine depth.
This black tea has a full body with hints of citrus and wood and a floral
termination. This tea has gone through a slow charcoal roasting using charcoal from the longan
which takes about 2 weeks. This results in a deeper and fuller body and the aroma is maintained for a long time, which makes it perfect for long-term storage.
The award-winning farmer, Mr Chang, insists on natural farming and no pesticides are used. They process
weeding, harvesting and manual processing. Mr. Chang's tea is more oxidized than regular farmers
for a softer taste and aroma.
