Description

The tea leaves are among the four best kinds of yan cha produced in Wuyishan Mountains in Fujian.

The trees with the leaves of this kind grow along rivers. The name of this tea stems from that the figure of the tree in the river which looks like a turtle craning its neck from the river on the surface of which there is a reflection of the sunlight.

Yan cha tea is distinguished by the place where it is grown. The one grown in the area of a high altitude in Wuysahn Mountains is called Zhen Yan Cha (正岩茶); Ban Yan Cha (半岩茶) is grown in the area of a low altitude; the one grown in neighboring fields Zhou Cha (州茶).

The yields of Shui Jin Gui in Zhen Yan area are really limited because it is harvested only once a year, whereas Zhou Cha is harvested several times a year. But if you want to taste a genuine Yan cha tea, Zhen Yan tea is the best choice.

This shui Jin Gui is roasted with medium heat. Its fragrance is just like Aquilaria agallocha and a little bit like Japanese apricot. It has a subtle, sweet and smooth flavor and some hidden unique fragrance.

Production time: April, 2017
Place of Origin: Wuyishan Zhen Yan area

How to prepare

1. Warm a teapot by pouring boiling water.
2. Put tea leaves of 3~4g into the pot per water of 150cc and pour boiling water to the pot at about 95~100℃.
3. Warm pitcher or a cup by pouring the rest of boiling water.
4. Steam it in about 60 seconds. If the scum comes up in tea, take it off with the edge of the tea cover. No need to throw away the tea to wash tea leaves. Steam it in a shorter time (about 50 seconds) in second infusion because tea leaves are already open after making cups of tea for the first time. After several infusions, taste of tea is getting weak, so take ten seconds longer to steam for each cup in order to make some cups of tea equally.
5. Pour the tea into pitcher from a teapot first to make tea even, then pour it to the cups. Make sure to open the lid of a teapot to prevent it steaming too much.

The taste of tea is a matter of preference, so try infusing tea in several ways and find your favorite way to infuse.
