Wuyi Rock Tea is one of the 4 main Oolong tea.
There are 4 different Wuyi Rock tea trees which are: Water Fairy (ShuiXian), Cinnamon (RouGui), Famous Plantation and Special Seed.
Local tea drinkers believe that:
-Regarding fragrance, Cinnamon(RouGui) is the best.
-Regarding the depth of the taste, Water Fairy(ShuiXian) is the best.
Famous Plantation is renowned for its unique taste from thousands of different cultivars.ex. Big Red Robe, Iron Monk, Golden Turtle, Golden Key……
Special Seed tea trees are grown from tea seeds, instead of using cultivars.It is also be regarded as wild tea trees.
