Shui Jin Gui, which translates to "Golden Water Turtle", is a legendary tea grown along the cliffs of Mount Wuyi. Cultivated since the Ming dynasty, this mounding plant is said to resemble a turtle as it ages. This cultivar is typically roasted less than other Wuyi teas, which brings out lighter, fruitier notes, which combines magnificently with the deep mineral complexion of rock grown yancha. Grown by hand along the Zhong Gu Yan cliffs within Wuyishan Ecological Preserve, where natural farming is protected by law. Using the tradtional method, this tea was roasted by hand with lychee wood charcoal three times, being allowed to rest extensively between roastings.
