Shui Xian is related to the Phoenix Mountain oolongs which are famous for their unparalleled fragrance. The process of creating Shui Xian begins by picking the top three or four leaves of the branch. After wilting and bruising, the leaves are hand-rolled into a shape said to resemble a frog's leg. These dark green leaves give off an exquisite lacquered fragrance that complements the tea's sweetness. Like most rock oolongs, this tea is partially oxidized between 40% and 60%.
