Wuyi Shui Xian, or Water Sprite, is considered one of the finest floral oolongs. The original variety was found by a Mr. Su near Tai Lake in Fujian. He had the idea of treating the leaves according to the oolong method, and the result was this fine, strong and full-bodied tea with a coppery colour and flowery aftertaste. Its elusively sweet and beguiling taste is perhaps what earned it the name of Water Sprite...

The lady of the river

raised the silken flutterings of her light mantle,

covered her long sleeves

and, for a moment, paused.

Then, swift as a hawk in flight,

again a goddess,

She sped upon her way.
