Nestled on a plateau not far from the fabled Da Hong Pao mother bush, Shui Liandong garden in Wuyi is the where one finds the roots of this medium-bodied rock oolong. Shui Jin Gui "Golden Water Turtle" is a ripe variety, meaning it flushes earlier in the season, compared to its siblings. For those looking for a softer, more fragrant cup to the brusque Iron Monk, the Golden Water Turtle makes a great alternative. After a resting period, this tea is incrementally roasted at a low temperature every two months to inspire texture and structured flavor.
