Rou Gui oolong tea is one of famous Wuyi Cliff Tea from Wuyi Mountain of Fu Jian.
Wuyi Cliff Oolong has long, curly leaves resembling iron shards. The leaves are hand-rolled into the traditional twisted Yan Cha form and pan-fired at their aromatic peak to arrest oxidation. Afterwards they are charcoal-fired in small batches to produce the deep green color and rich flavor that have made this tea one of China's most famous tea. The aroma of the dry leaf is deliciously sweet while the dark amber infusion is soft, smooth and malt.
Rou Gui is famous for its lingering and rich flowery aroma, being so good that you will be captivated before you even drink the tea. The infusion produces cups of strong, amber-colored beverage.
To Enjoy: Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Switch the kettle off, before it boils, when you hear the water rumbling. Add the hot, but not boiling, water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling.
