Our Premium RouGui, which translates to “Cassia fragrance”, is 2016 Spring harvest oolong and is grown at 300-450 M in elevation and is from plants around 25 years old.
This quality of RouGui is harder to come across since it is grown in a special region of Mount Wyui, a National reserve and is hand harvested along with traditionally processed for the three month cycle. The space this takes up in the garden is small at only .8 of an acre.
The tea leaf is long and intact showing it’s of high quality and processing. Tasting notes initially are hints of coca/cinnamon spice flavor. We find this offering to have a more complex flavor profile that allows one to be involved with the diverse change noted throughout the tea session.
As the tea settles a caramel taste is noted and a pleasant cooling sensation is felt. is Brewing this in a Gaiwan or a clay tea pot will steep up 10 times and we find each steep is beautifully uniqie.
