Foojoy Organic Shui Hsien, “Water Sprite”, is an oolong tea from the area of Mount Wuyi near the northern border of Fu Jian province. Shui Hsien oolongs are often harvested from Camellia sinensis trees that are over 100 years old. After harvest the leaves are skillfully twisted and roasted over a charcoal fire. Shui Hsien has a soft, roasted, straw-like taste with a nutty aroma. The infused color is very dark brown showing that the tea is among the darkest of the oolongs from Wuyi.
