This tea may have the same name as some low quality tea used in dimsum restaurants but it certainly tastes differently. It is the ORIGINAL Shuixian, the famous oolong that grows on dark rock cliffs in the depth of Wuyi Mountains. Narcissus Classic, like most other deeper baked oolongs, goes well with a wide range of cuisines and desserts and is a great digestive. Also an adaptable tea for preparation with other ingredients, such as ginger and raw sugar, and a safer tea for the weaker stomach.
Deep, sweet, warm and complex aroma. Tints of sweet roots and an undertone of apple butter with a balanced toasty cereal overtone. Accents of moss and herbs that are typical of high grown oolongs. Dark amber stout infusion rounded with good malty sweetness in a silky texture. Slight citrus accents and immediate, tinkling spicy, bittersweet aftertaste.
A great tea for developing your infusion technique for its varying taste profile when infused differently.
While White Peony from Fuding tastes more floral, that from the other earliest region, Zhenghe, tastes longer and deeper. The more tedious curing process is marked by the darker colors on the leaves. This is the best and most classical representation from the origin, aka King of White Peony, a favorite by many white tea connoisseurs.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSave
Those who prefer white tea as their daily drink but want a bit more stimulations in taste, White Peony from Zhenghe is a great choice. It is air withered for a longer duration from one of the two classic cultivars, Zhenghe Dabai. The resultant tea tastes slightly sharper and longer than white teas produced from the other classic, Fuding Dabai. White Peony Zhenghe is a fine tea that is most affordably priced.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
For people who like classic style Phoenix but desire something more mellow than Honey Orchid, Orchid Gratus offers a taste that is as full-bodied. It is balanced with as subtle a warm and slightly sweet aroma. Not only is this a great choice for the veteran tea connoisseur who seeks peace in the cup, but is also a bridge between softer oolongs and the more vibrant world of taste in Fenghuang Dancong.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
For those who prefer a little more strength in their green tea, April Mist is a pleasant choice. Harvested from scattered wild tea bushes in April during the misty days of the mountainous region and lightly roasted to perfection, this Yunwu (translate: misty) makes a distinct difference from its counterparts that may look similar.Net weight: 90 g (3.2 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
