With "Water Dragon" from the spring of 2021 running out, we felt the urge to create a new Shui Xian for this season utilising our new method of tea processing. Mr. Feng again provided us with this precious opportunity to process such a unique varietal that is hard to acquire.

 

Tea lovers who are very familiar with tea will immediately notice this varietal came from the southeast coast of China. Being a neighbour of it, Taiwan was fortunate enough to have this rare varietal transferred to Pinglin in recent years. Mr. Feng has been taking advantages of Pinglin's unique and clean terroir to grow these special varietals from China, and has achieved some remarkable results such as this Shui Xian.

 

Since the pandemic in northern Taiwan is still not totally under control, we again picked up the material from their plantation and then drove all the way back to our Beipu factory to work with it. The production of this season was reduced greatly in the region due to the lack of rain in autumn, but this particular plantation was fortunately not affected as badly. As a result, we are able to offer a much more affordable price for this powerful tea.

 

This tea will have a bit of difference compared to its spring version thanks to our new processing. If you still have "Water Dragon" at hand, not only you will notice the changing seasonal character but also how the new processing method has interacted with the water structure inside the tea. If "White Leaf" is also at hand, you will be able to notice the significant difference in processing from head to toe. This "Ice Dragon" is another companion not only in tea enjoyment, but more importantly in the understanding of tea overall.
