Shui Xian Oolong tea: the semi-fermented tea from the Wuyi gardens
It is in the middle of nature, in the Wuyi mountains in China, that the leaves of this semi-oxidized organic tea are picked. It is part of the Yancha family of teas, growing in rocky gardens. The nature of the soil gives Shui Xian its typical strong and mineral taste. Our organic Oolong tea is lightly oxidized and roasted to give it woody and fruity notes. In addition to these delicious flavors, a subtle caramel aroma emerges from the cup. This organic product offers superior quality infusions with a light yellow color.
Benefits and virtues of Shui Xian Oolong tea
In addition to offering a natural product with a unique flavor, Wuyi semi-fermented tea is an infusion of choice for your health. Oolong teas are rich in polyphenols. Drinking several infusions during the day limits the oxidation of your body's cells. Semi-oxidized tea is also beneficial for weight loss. Low in caffeine, Oolong Shui Xian tea can be enjoyed all day long, unlike black coffee and other teas.
