[Woo-ee Shwan Shway Shwan] Water Nymph / Narcissus
This tea is known as “water nymph” or “narcissus,” named after the narcissus flowers in the port of Quanzhou, from where this tea was originally exported. This cheering drink from Wuyi Mountain has a distinctive, warming aroma and a voluptuous taste that leaves a slightly nutty sweetness on the lips. Long leaves are wilted and hand-rolled into murky dark green s-shapes, which unravel to produce copper-colored infusions laden with the ephemeral playfulness of fairy spirits. Seductive, this variety will cause the tea-drinker to gaze off into the teacup for many blissful hours.
