|Quick description||Cassia (Chinese cinnamon) aroma|
Rougui tea (Chinese: 肉桂茶; pinyin: ròuguì chá; pronounced [ɻôu.kwêi ʈʂʰǎ]) is a variety of the tea plant, commonly grown in the Wuyi Mountains and processed into oolong tea. The name literally means "cassia". The tea can be difficult to prepare,[clarification needed] but its distinctive sweet aroma can be brought out up to 7 steepings. It was first developed during the Qing dynasty.
This tea may be traditionally processed producing a dark dry leaf and a rich smell or processed according to new consumer standards,[clarification needed] giving it a leaf of mixed color and a more fruity aroma.
