Shuixian: Winter 2019 Premium
This is the boldest-flavored tea of the season, and quickly brews to a rich color. It has a drier finish compared to the tieguanyin teas, as well as some really interesting aromatic features. Careful charcoal baking has brought out a fruity quality both from the dry leaves and aroma cup that is similar to that from cocoa or dark chocolate. On that basis I think this one has good food pairing potential.

Shuixian: Spring 2017 Special Acquisition
Produced from wild (untended) tea plants, this charcoal-baked batch evokes the heavier-baked teas before electric ovens were in widespread use. The flavor is deep and smoky, with a dry finish characteristic of the shuixian cultivar. It does not brew up particularly fast, so don‘t be afraid to infuse for slightly longer with hotter water. Expect many infusions with a fine color and aroma to back up the long-lasting flavor.
