Tips for Tea Connoisseurs
Golden Water Turtle (aka. Shui Jin Gui) is one of the four legendary oolong teas (i.e. Da Hong Pao, Bai Ji Guan, Tie Luo Han, Shui Jin Gui) from Wuyi Mountain, Fujian Province, China. According to a folklore, Golden Water Turtle oolong tea has got its name because of this cultivar's distinctive appearance which has long and arrow shaped leaves and branches that were believed to resemble an algae-covered longevity water turtle.
Due to its very special terroir, Golden Water Turtle oolong tea is also known as "Yancha", literally meaning "Rock Tea", because the rocky soil of Wuyi mountain nourishes the tea bushes hence a distinctive mineral note is often found in the liquor of Golden Water Turtle oolong tea. Using the hand-picked, tender, spring tea leaves of old tea bushes, our Golden Water Turtle has been artfully crafted and meticulously charcoal-roasted. The result is an incredibly complex, aromatic infusion with a bright, orange brown colour that magnificently mingles fragrant floral (osmanthus, orange blossom), fruity (peach, orange), caramel, brioche and vanilla flavours. The delicate charcoal roasting has been masterly done not to cover up the natural citrus fruity character of the original Shui Jin Gui cultivar.
A truly impressive signature Wuyi Rock oolong Tea with depth and complexity.
