About Kun Jian Rui Quay – Cinnamon Oolong Tea
This exclusive Kun Jian Rui Quay Cha is an Oolong tea. Rui Quay means cinnamon in Chinese. “Kun Jian” refers to small areas created by rocks or mountains near a creek, thereby getting indirect sunlight with flowing water. Some Kun Jian has its own micro-climates. “Kun Jian” is the best growing area for tea plants. The Wuyi region is filled with Kun Jian, making Wuyishan one of China’s finest tea-growing districts. Rui Quay or Cinnamon Oolong tea is my personal favorite!
Meet Old Daddy & Son – Heritage Oolong Tea-Masters
Old Daddy is the 11th generation Oolong heritage tea-master in Wuyishan. The younger Mr. Huang and father run Rui Chuan (means Sparkling Spring in Chinese), one of the longest-running Oolong family in Wuyi mountains. Over 300 years of tea-making has brought a light golden hue to their exquisite teas, making Rui Chuan a much sought-after brand in China and the pan-Asian region. To hone his tea-making skills, the younger Huang went to live at the Mother Temple for six years to learn and train with the monks where Oolong tea was invented around the mid-1600s.
Supreme Oolong Teas By Old Daddy
Supreme Kun Jian Rui Quay Cha is handcrafted by Old Daddy and sons and tea-makers, using traditional Oolong tea-making techniques passed down from the Buddhist monks in Wuyi.
I was blessed with the opportunity of tasting Old Daddy’s teas during the filming. What a delight to taste the father and son’s Oolong tea. This exquisite Kun Jian Rui Quay – Cinnamon Oolong Tea Gift Set is perfect for the tea connoisseur seeking to transport to the magical Wuyi Mountains with just a sip.
Old Daddy and sons produce Oolong teas exclusively. And Rui Chuan’s teas are hard to come by. The high demand for supreme Oolong teas in China alone makes Rui Chuan teas nearly beyond reach for most tea connoisseurs within China, let alone outside the country. The Huang family offered me three limited editions of their supreme Oolong teas to commemorate 9 DRAGONS TEA filming. And I’d love to share them with the world. You will find them in the store:
Oolong tea’s health benefits are well-known among Chinese people. Of all the six types of tea, Oolong tea is the most complicated tea to make. In Wuyi Shan, Oolong tea is synonymous with Wuyi Rock Tea. By comparison, Green teas are made in a day, for example.
Why Wuyi Tea Is Supreme
There are over 800 varietals in the Wuyi mountains. The over-abundance of tea-plant varietals makes Wuyishan the “heart of tea,” in my opinion.
Have you ever heard of the famous poem of 7-Cup by Lu Tong in the Tang Dynasty (about two thousand years ago)? Legend said Lu Tong was tasting Wuyi tea, which he coined the phrase “Rock’s milk.”
The greatest plant-hunter, tea raider ever lived, Robert Fortune called Wuyishan the “land of tea,” where he smuggled the finest tea-seeds, tea-plants, and tea-making secrets from Wuyishan to India. Fortune’s tea-raid in China makes a great final chapter in the film. Learn more about how tea came to India.
Only one gift box available. Total 128 grams. There are 16 pouches at 8 grams per pouch.
Chinese tea connoisseurs taste tea with 8 grams per brew.
Have you heard of Gong Fu Cha? Or Kung Fu Tea, Kung Fu Cha? The Buddhist monks who invented Oolong tea created this taste ritual for the tea. This Zen Tea Ceremony is still in practice today. We enjoyed capturing this ancient tea ritual in Wuyishan filming, and my stress level dissipated as I watched the monks methodically brew the tea.
Wuyi Rock Tea or Wuyi Oolong is famous for its long-lasting brew. Usually, the third brew is the best. Wuyi Rock Tea is so durable in a tasting, for me, up to 9 or 10 steeps.
