ORIGIN: Wuyishan, Fujian, China
DESCRIPTION:Rock tea is produced in the Wuyi Mountain area of Fujian Province and belongs to the oolong tea among the six major tea categories. There are many cliffs in Wuyi Mountain, and rock tea grows in rock depressions and rock crevices. Moreover, the mountain body of Wuyi Mountain is red glutenite, which belongs to the Danxia landform. Therefore, there is a saying that "there is tea in rocks, but there is no tea in non-rocks", hence the name rock tea.
The tea sage Lu Yu's "Tea Classic" says: "The tea maker, the top one produces rotten rocks, the middle one produces gravel soil, and the bottom one produces loess." Wuyi rock tea, one of China's top ten famous teas, grows in such a In the environment, the taste, texture and taste of the tea soup it presents naturally has a unique rock flavor. The world calls it "rock bone flower fragrance".
There are thirty-six peaks, seventy-two caves, and ninety-nine rocks in Wuyi Mountain. There are tea in the rocks, but there is no tea in the rocks. There are as many as 400 varieties, among which narcissus is one of the leading stars of Wuyi rock tea, and its quality is unique.
Known as: "The fragrance is not as good as Rou Gui, and the alcohol is not as good as Shui Xian".
But there are also differences between rocks and rocks. According to the origin of the green tea, rock tea is divided into Zheng Yan, Bạn Yan and Chau Cha.
Zheng Yan tea refers to the tea produced in the core area of Wuyi Mountain represented by "San Keng Liang Jian". It has high quality, mellow taste and distinctive rock flavor.
Bạn Yan tea refers to the tea produced on the edge of Wuyi Mountain, and its rock flavor is slightly inferior to that of Zheng Yan tea.
Chau tea generally refers to the tea produced on both sides of the Wuyi Rock, and the quality is lower.
There is also a chain of contempt for drinking tea. I don’t know where to start, but Pu’er tea and rock tea seem to be at the top of the chain of contempt in the tea circle. The price in the market has also risen, and it has naturally become the hardest hit area for "false labels". The variety, field, and year need to be carefully identified.
This time, what Tongxinshe Teahouse recommends to tea lovers is the 2023 Hui Yuan Keng Shui Xian personally produced by the former Wuyishan Tea Science Institute/Wuyi Rock Tea Intangible Cultural Heritage Inheritor "Mr. Wang Guoxing".
Selecting high-quality raw materials from the core production area of Shui Xian, and then going through layers of checks, they are baked with a strong aroma, and the brewing is full-bodied and full-bodied.
Open the aluminum can package, you can see that the dry tea is strong and knotted, the color is oily, with a slight dry aroma, the first three soups are golden and clear, and when you smell the cup cover carefully, the fragrance of flowers and charcoal are dominant.
In the fourth bubble, the zongzi leaf fragrance of the Shui Xian variety itself appears, and the tea soup enters the water, but does not stay on the surface. The entrance is mellow and smooth, rich in substances, with a mossy taste after three brews, and a long aftertaste. After eight bubbles, the aftertaste is still long-lasting, cool and refreshing, full of rocky rhyme. The bottom of the leaf is fat, tender, soft and bright, full of elasticity, and has the beauty of green leaves and red borders.
Wuyi rock tea is named after the "rock", and a good rock tea pays attention to its origin-mountain field.
The core production area of Mount Wuyi is called "San Keng Liang Jian", including Hui Yuan Keng, Niu Lan Keng, Da Keng Kou, Liu Xiang Jian and Wu Yuan Jian.
Among them, Hui Yuan Keng occupies a very important position, mainly planting Shui Xian, so there are many "Hui Yuan Keng Shui Xian" in the market. Niu Lan Keng mainly grows Rou Gui, so there is "Niu Lan Keng Rou Gui", commonly known as beef.
At the same time, many high-quality traditional rock tea "mingcongs" that have been preserved for thousands of years in Wuyi Mountain all come from Huiyuankeng, enjoying the reputation of "eight hundred famous clusters come from Huiyuan".
Surrounded by strange peaks, high cliffs, and criss-cross gullies, it forms a natural barrier with a unique growth environment and micro-climate. The valley is deep, the clouds and mists linger all year round, the sunshine is short, and the winter is warm and humid. The surface soil is thick, there are many humus plants, the content of organic matter is high, and the soil is loose, which makes the root system of tea trees grow thick and well developed. The tea trees are covered with epiphytic mosses, which can grow up to six to eight meters without human intervention. They are tall and lush, giving birth to rich tea leaves.
Therefore, on the basis of retaining the original mellowness of the Shui Xian variety, this tea also has a "cong rhyme" endowed by time.
Relying on years of academic accumulation and tea-making experience, Mr. Wang Guoxing, according to the "cluster rhyme" of the tea green, skillfully used the craftsmanship to refine the unique charm of this tea, which has a shocking taste and is not domineering.
