Shui Xian Oolong


We’re excited to introduce the second Oolong to our Oolong offerings. We were looking for a high-grade, medium-dark roast Oolong and we found the perfect fit.

Shui Xian was mostly known from Wu Yi Mountain in Fujian Province, China. Around 150 years ago, there was a tea farmer from Quan Zhou City, Fujian who started using Wu Yi processing techniques to produce Wenshan Baozhong Tea in Taiwan. Eventually Wenshan Baozhong tea developed its own unique qualities of a very delicate, lightly oxidized Oolong tea which was very suitable for the local market.

In cooperation with a neighboring local tea farmer in Mingjian, Nantou, the tea producer used traditional Wu Yi style to produce this tea – with a higher oxidization level. Arrangement were then made for a veteran tea master, of over 30 years experience, to carefully roast this specially prepared tea using the Wu Yi style processing of Shui Xian Oolong tea.

The High Grade Shui Xian is EU pesticide compliant.
