Tea Master Zhan
Black tea from our biodiverse tea mountain, unique in flavor and fragrance. The unique terroir can be recognized when drinking this tea. Handmade by tea masters Zhan (father and son). This Shuilan Black tea is the representative of Wuyuan Black tea.
The Shui Zhi Lan tea professional cooperative is located in Shuilan Town of Dazhangshan village of Wuyuan county of Jiangxi province. The Town is located on one of Wuyuan’s highest mountain ranges. Most of the tea gardens are located at an altitude of 400 to 800 meters, perfect for growing high quality green and black teas. With the mountains covered by clouds and fog almost daily and the tea gardens surrounded by broadleaf trees, you know already how good this tea can be. And these tea gardens are isolated, far away from any city. From Wuyuan County it takes about one and a half hours by car to reach our village, all the way up the mountain, then it takes another one and a half hours to climb the mountain all the way up to our 800 meters high tea garden.
This tea is processed by Tea Master Zhan and his father. Black tea is an oxidized tea - it is refined by withering, rolling (cutting), oxidizing, drying and so on. Because of its dry tea color and dark tea soup, it is known as black tea. In China black tea is actually red tea, since this colour describes good quality 'black' tea better. However, average quality could be indeed black.
The warm climate, rich vegetation and biodiversity, provide an excellent ecological growing environment. Shuilan produces only high quality tea. The taste is sweet, with a unique natural flavor, popular with many customers. If you know the area we are based in (corner of Anhui, Zhejiang and Jiangxi) and are familiar with black teas, then you will recognize the local terroir.
Shuilan Black tea is the new representative of Wuyuan Black tea. Black tea from our biodiverse tea mountain, unique in flavour and fragrance. From the same tea cultivar as our green teas and picked before the Guyu festival. The unique terroir of this area can be recognized when drinking this black tea. Afterwards you will be able to tell whether a tea is from Wuyuan and what the difference is with other non-natural Wuyuan teas (chemical tea). Considering all these amazingly perfect circumstances for high quality tea.... the price of this tea is regarded as low. An great opportunity for all tea drinkers.
Use water just below boiling temperature, and chose between the kungfu way or Easytea preparation. We suggest to use a Gaiwan made from porcelain because it will enhance the colour and give you moments of a variety of different fragrances. Moreover, the fragrance of this tea stays lingering in your cup due to the porcelain material, a quality glass doesn't possess.
