Fujian Rain or Shui Xian, which translates to "Water Sprite," is an oolong produced in a similar style to Wuyi Oolongs. Therefore they share some similar traits, such as peachy-honey notes and a mineral "rock taste." Grown at an elevation of 800 meters, this high-fired, medium grade version results in a rich-tasting amber colored cup with the nuances of minerals, apricots and spice. Great for an everyday oolong option.

This oolong tea, aka Shui Xian or Water Sprite, is a combination of fruity/earthy flavors that result in an amber cup of lightly roasted tea. Grown at mid-level (800 meters) it is an historically popular tea because of its classic, mineral “rock taste” that reflects traditional wuyi yancha roots. Fujian Rain offers a smooth sensation on the palate and soft toastiness in every cup. After all, is grown in Fujian province where oolong, white, and black processing styles were first developed. You can see the art, the craftsmanship in every leaf and taste it in every sip.
