The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
About Shui Xian Oolong tea
Like most rock oolongs, this tea is partially fermented-from 40% to 60%. Shui Xian, sometimes called Water Immortal or Narcissus, is an especially fragrant tea with a liquor of glowing scorched-orange honey color. The ephemeral narcissus aroma is purely an artifact of the tea's cultivation and processing. No flowers were necessary to scent this delicacy.
Shui Xian oolong tea is originally from the Wuyi Mountains in China's Fujian Province. Although the top grades of Shui Xian are still produced in Wuyi Mountain, inferior grades of Shui Xian oolong tea are produced in other areas of Fujian Province. These lesser grades are the type of oolong tea that is often served in Chinese restaurants. Lesser grade Shiu Xian is characterized by a burnt flavor, but the first grades have a sweet honey taste.
Shui Xian can be translated as water sprite or water fairy. Other names for this oolong tea include shui hsien, narcissus, and water immortal.
The tea is fired more than other oolongs, and the result is a relatively dark oolong with a full body.
Mount Wuyi is the home of many famous oolong teas including Da Hong Pao and Lapsang souchong. It is a United Nations World Heritage Site because of its outstanding biodiversity.It has ideal conditions for growing oolong tea. The Wuyi Mountain range acts as a natural barrier against cold northern winds while also retaining the warm moist air from the south. Shiu Xian tea is grown at an altitude of about 800 meters in a fog enshrouded environment that received plenty of rainfall.
