Lose yourself in the rivulets and backwaters of your mind, and let this powerful tea reshape your thinking, as you sip the waters of immortality. Brook no interruptions of your down time.
The flowery aroma of this tea is notable even from a distance. Shui Xian (‘water fairy’ or ‘water immortal’) is also translated as narcissus flower, for its stunning fragrance. You too may find yourself gazing into its depths, entranced by what you find there.
The creamy texture of this tea is almost buttery, the dark chocolate flavor note accentuated by the aroma of roasted vanilla. It will hold up over many brews, where the lingering sweetness will gradually transform into a minty cooling sensation.
