This tea comes from the Shui Lian Dong area – a place where most tourists go to feed pigeons 🙂 and not far from it to watch the falling water from the rocky waterfall, which is named after this area. Perhaps most important at this point in the inner park are large tea gardens, which are at the top of the rock mostly planted with Shui Xian variety, but there is also one part, which is planted with variety Ba Xian (8 immortals). These tea bushes are very similar to Shui Xian, so most people do not recognize them. The difference comes in the cup, when the tea is more aromatic and attractive. This tea is from about 30 years old tea bushes and is processed in a small factory of the Zhang family.
Tea is baked traditionally on charcoal.
