Description

Rougui (肉桂, cinnamon) is a type of rock tea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. Along with the usual fiery Wulong flavors, a spicy sweetness can be found in the tea, that later turns into a long-lasting nutty aftertaste. Besides the rock teas’ strong chaqi (茶氣, tea energy) the relatively high caffeine content contributes to the joyful vitalizing effect that this tea has on the body.

Wuyi teas have two major idiosyncrasies: first, they are plucked only during Spring, and second, they are baked multiple times: at harvest time, then once again a half year later.

Tasting notes:
Steamed gaiwan: complex fragrant notes, elegant ember, some cocoa and citrus peel
Tastes, feeling: brown-baked buttered biscuit, then turns to well-blended woodiness. Ember, refreshing flowers, coconut chips, cinnamon. Outstanding tea with a nice warming effect, which can make the mind more vibrant also. 

The Wuyi Mountains are situated in Fujian Province, China. With its more than a thousand-year-old history of tea cultivation, and approximate 200 different subgenera of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, the area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain’s volcanic nature reappears in the character of the tea: fiery, vitalizing ambiance and strong chaqi.
