Cassia Oolong or 'Rou Gui' is made with leaves picked from tea plants grown along the cliffs of the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province. As a type of high-aroma tea, it belongs to the well-known Wuyi “rock tea” family.

This Rou Gui oolong strongly holds the baked aroma and flavour on both the dry leaves and the tea liquid; from the first steep, the aroma fills the nose, and when sipping the tea, the caramelised aroma comes first, to be followed by a strong floral, fruity note. The taste and aroma blend perfectly together, creating a sweet and fragrant yet thick tea, with a smooth, sweet aftertaste and that unmistakable rock rhyme.
