Lao Cong (i.e. Old Bush) Shui Xian is produced using tea leaves picked from tea bushes of at least 15 years old, which grow along the wild, rocky mountain area of Wuyi Shan. It is believed that tea prepared using the tea leaves from these old bushes has exceptional medicinal qualities, being able to soothe the body and mind, in addition to the ability to detoxify the body system. Lao Cong Shui Xian is loved particularly by elders for its bold and unique flavor. We highly recommend this tea to all Wuyi Rock tea lovers.

Other names:

Old Bush Shui Xian, Old Bush Shui Hsien


Lao Cong Shui Xiang taste is sophisticated and special in a kind of way that can only be produced by the tea leaves picked from an old bush. It has a natural menthol-like cooling effect with a somewhat medicinal, yet sweet taste. The aftertaste is felt in your throat before the back of your tongue. Truly a sensational tea.


Traditional looking Oolong tea. Dark and slightly curled tea leaves.


Wu Yi Shan, Fujian Province, China

Harvest Period:

Spring 2015

Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Fill the teapot 1/2 to 3/4 full with tea leaves, or 3 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using purple clay. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (207°F) to 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can purple clay or porcelain tea ware.

This is very dark oolong. The fruity notes of younger shuixian are almost gone. Nice chocolate and vanilla subtle flavor though. A real mineral quality is there- rocky. This might sound bad but a dirty flavor is there too. good tea.

The tea leaves and the smell is very fresh and the smell makes you happy and sweet. Its perfect for those cold winter days.

Rich, full-bodied, woodsy, smokey, mineral or rocky taste, with a nice medium fragrance. Although this LCSH is quite strong, it is still very smooth and sweet. It has a very classic "old-school" Wu Yi oolong taste profile because of the heavy oxidation. I could also taste the subtle cooling menthol-like qualities of old tea leaves. Great product!

One of my favorite Wu Yi rock teas, Lao Cong Shui Xian has become part of my daily tea routine. Its the tea that wakes me up in the morning. Its well worth the price.

A very pleasant tea, but not one I'm finding particularly memorable. I could easily see myself buying it again but I could just as easily see myself not. I'd recommend it to people but not as a must have.

The normal Shui Xian was more pleasing to me, this tea is decent, nothing out of the ordinary though.
