There are three most famous Wuyi tea cultivars... Da Hong Pao, Rou Gui and Shui Xian. Among them, Shui Xian is the most traditional tea cultivar in Wuyi. Actually most of the Wuyi tea farmers call Shui Xian as Cai Cha 菜茶, which means a tea planted around Cai Yuan 菜园 - Vegetable garden. (Chinese farmers have the tradition of owning a small vegetable garden around the house for daily vegetables). It means Shui Xian tea tree in Wuyi is part of the life of the Wuyi farmers, more than a product.
