About This Tea

Nurtured in the heart of Wuyi's Yancha fields on the San Yang Feng at an elevation of 717.7 meters, Gao Cong Shui Xian encapsulates the essence of Wuyi's highest peak—a poetic quest akin to climbing heights to seek the moon. Handpicked for its superior quality, this tea releases a enduring orchid fragrance, interwoven with subtle moss and woody notes, showcasing the distinctive features of Gao Cong Shui Xian. Within lies the essence of the rugged terrains, offering a smooth, thick texture and a rich, enduring taste.

The tea presents a profound aroma and a rich infusion. Its fragrance is intense yet not sharp, clear yet distant, embodying stories and depth, making it an intriguing Gao Cong Shui Xian. The roasting process is meticulous, employing a medium-light roast and slow simmering to ensure a perfect balance of aroma and taste.

Recognized as the "King of Shui Xian," it endures around 15 brews while maintaining its orchid fragrance. Best savored in serene moments, its enduring flavors gain depth with each indulgence.

*Tea leaves contain tea polyphenols and caffeine, which are the source of the bitter and astringent flavour of the tea soup, as well as the source of the sweetness. Reducing the amount of tea leaves, lowering the water temperature or speeding up the soup can reduce the bitterness and astringency.

Meditative tea

Elegant and extremely layered tea. The first infusion is subtle and gentle and the buttery and flowery empty cup invites to discover more. The liquor gets then very aromatic and complex: orchid and underwood scents with a mellow sweetness and a slight, pleasant astringency, reminiscent of the one of almonds, while the last infusions reveal some fruity notes. The leaves easily withstand a high number of steeps and are perfect for a long meditative session.
