Rocky Valley Oolong (also called 岩茶) is a variety of the Fujian Wuyi Rock Tea family, presents an exceptionally complicated aroma, best described as floral, fruity, choc-caramel and smoky all at once! This cacophony is the result of the rocky soil, full of precious minerals and nutrients.
The tea is made from a cultivar called Shui Xian ( 水仙), itself is made from larger leaves, which can be strong and powerful, but the tea is smooth with a golden to brown colour, and a lingering finish. It has been traditionally described as a masculine tea for male due to its exceptional strong taste.
