Fo Shou

Fo Shou is a rare rock tea. The name means translated “Buddhas hand”. The teas aroma resembles citron, a large citrus fruit which is also called Bhuddas hand.
The almost inaccessible tea growing area makes industrial production virtually impossible and so this tea is still harvested by hand. The manufacturer also produces out of conviction purely biological. This is also promoted by the government since Wuyi Shan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it should remain like this. The Wuyi mountain range stretches at an altitude between 200 and up to 2058m and have a mild climate with an average temperature of 21°C.
Tea production in Wuyi has a tradition of over a thousand year and the historical knowledge about the art of tea is passed down from generation to generation. This especial type of tea is grown by small family runned farms and thanks centuries old knowledge processed into a Oolong of it’s own class. So it’s no surprise that they recently won the first place (with Rou Gui) and also the second place (with Shui Xian) in the Wuyi Yan Cha Championships. The tea is produced still very traditionally: The tea is dried and withered in baboo trays and finally roasted over charcoal fire in bamboo baskets.

Through stronger roasting (compared with Taiwanese Oolong) is this Fo Shou Oolong tea especially suitable for connoisseurs who prefer to store and mature special teas.
