    Deep forest, and juicy aromatics - the new 2021 harvest is here!

    Shui Xian is named after the Narcissus flower, but has the deeper meaning of “Water Sprite.” The cliffs above the Longchuan river are full of caves and ghost stories, so it is not hard to imagine this tea getting its name from an old Taoist legend. Mr. Li hand-fired this batch of Shui Xian to give its cooling texture even more sparkling, tingling intensity. Shui Xian varietal is known for its foresty woody flavors and deep lingering texture. The Li Family’s biodiverse forested tea gardens within the Wuyi Ecological Preserve help play up the varietals natural complexity.


  • 'Lingering aromatics, sweet sensation on the sides of the mouth, mouth watering, and a vaporous persistent quality - these are what we call Yan Yun. - Li Xiangxi'
