Narcissus Classic, Wuyi yancha oolong
Dark Rock Shuixian:
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.
Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
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.

Delicious and carefree tea
I bought this tea for a lunch party for the price, because there were 8 guests, so I guessed I would use up the whole pack for it. I left the leaves in an 8 cup pot to refill for two times and changed once afterward to refill once. So total 40 cups. There is still half a pack of leaves. The tea was aromatic, delicious and great with the meal. Everyone enjoyed it. Strength of the tea was not quite even because of this steeping method, but that was expected. However, this quality is beyond my expectation for the price!
Dark Roast, but not heavy. Mineral notes developing into a chalky finish leaving the mouth with a dryness. Good huigan, but lacking in smoothness, sweetness, thickness in body, and that chocolate flavor that good Shui Xian can exhibit. Somewhat disappointed in this one. I think Tea Hong can do better.
