    Delicious. My preferred type of Shui Xian. Ive been drinking this one for years, and keep coming back to it.

    Very dark, strong flavor. Not so long lasting with gongfu brewing. But its great as long as it lasts.

    I like this one alot for the intense taste and smell the first 2-3 steeps. But quickly loose its appeal.

    Thid tea seemed to be too weak, almost like a second infusion, in comparison with similar teas I purchased elsewhere. The aroma is characteristic and the flavor seemed very diluted. I tried increasing the amount of leaves, but was still not happy with it.

    Beautiful Wu Yi tea. Has one shortcoming so, --it goes too fast. This is my second order and this time on the double to last longer.

    Peter (4/24/2013)
     
    My first try and I am converted. This is a great Wu Yi Shan oolong. Will order more next time.

    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.

    James (1/18/2011)
     
    So good that i brought it once more! A very old taste, its like drinking an antique.

    We like it so much we bought this again. We recommended this anyone who is looking for an older age tea

    Id had Lao Cong Shui Xian before, but not from Tea Spring. I bought about four ounces, and am slowly making my way through it. Its a very enjoyable high-oxidation oolong, probably one of my favorites. Definitely recommended.

    James (11/17/2010)
     
    The tea leaves and the smell is very fresh and the smell makes you happy and sweet. Its perfect for those cold winter days.

    li (10/26/2010)
     
    As always, Shui Xian is smoky and delicious. Would definitely recommend for fans of Wuyi oolongs.

    James (3/1/2010)
     
    I really enjoy this tea. Good buy. Tea is aromatic, has a nice finish, and characteristic of a quality Shui Xian.

    Rowena (1/29/2010)
     
    The normal Shui Xian was more pleasing to me, this tea is decent, nothing out of the ordinary though.

    Daniel (1/19/2010)
     
    This is my 2nd time ordering this tea. good one... nothing to complaint.

    Budy (10/6/2009)
     
    Good, I enjoyed this tea quite a bit, and if you count the multiple steeps probably not too costly.

    Christopher (9/26/2009)
     
    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!

    Kei (9/13/2009)
     
    Lasted many infusions and has a nice depth to it. It would be interesting to compare this with the regular shui xian.

    mark (5/5/2009)
     
    Very good LAO CONG SUI XIAN, smokey and smell good when you pour the hot water for 1st infusion.

    Budy (3/10/2009)
     
    Very nice tea but I prefer the regular Shui Xian.

    Gregory (3/8/2009)
     
    Exemplifies all the characteristics of a typical Wuyi oolong: dark, twisted leaves, woodsy character, reddish liquid with medium body. With the first steep, the smokiness flavor and aroma are a bit too strong. Perhaps this is one of those teas that can benefit from a few years of aging to diminish its fire profile.

    Vuong (2/6/2009)
     
    A very pleasant tea, but not one Im finding particularly memorable. I could easily see myself buying it again but I could just as easily see myself not. Id recommend it to people but not as a must have.

    Merete (2/2/2008)
     
    Dank musty and kind of skunkey in a good way. The tea levees a nice cool feeling on your mouth for a long time. I like this tea a lot and am ordering more today.

    ryan (1/31/2008)
     
    Pugent but very good. First try and I am satisfied.

    Alice (9/17/2007)
     
    Sweet taste the best the tranquilizing sensation that he leaves in the mind and in the body .recommend highly.

    eva (5/8/2007)
     
    This is very dark oolong. The fruity notes of younger shuixian are almost gone. Nice chocalate 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.

    Daniel (3/16/2007)
     
    Sweeter and more complex than ordinary Shui Xian, but very similar flavor. Lots of mileage per pot. I love this tea.
