NEW! 2016 Wuyi Water Golden Turtle
Origin: Wuyi Mountain, Fujian, China
Wuyi oolongs are considered by many to be the finest teas in the world, and as a result the prices they fetch are some of the highest. Grown on sheer cliffs of soft porous stone, in soil just a few inches deep, these teas develop a beautiful minerality that is unmistakable and cannot be reproduced elsewhere. Unlike the more famous Big Red Robe, Water Golden Turtle is less smoky and softer.
From the first sip of the first infusion, it is clear how special this tea is. Beyond fullness, the liquor seems to grasp the palate with notes of butterscotch and savory roasted peanuts. Later infusions hint of sweet longan fruit and take on a more vegetal aroma of freshly cut cedar. This is the producer’s highest graded lot and is a tea to be appreciated on its own preferably with six or more infusions throughout the day.
HEALTH BENEFITSTraditionally believed to help maintain a slender figure, Oolong is semi-oxidized, making it unique from green and black tea.
