About Rou Gui

Rou gui (肉桂), meaning cinnamon, and also called Cassia bark oolong, is a type of oolong tea from Fujian, China. It tends to be a darker oolong, and is named for its aroma, which suggests cinnamon. Contrary to what its name might suggest, it is a pure tea, and contains no cinnamon flavoring: the cinnamon aroma originates through a combination of growing conditions and years of careful selection of the cultivar used to grow this tea.

Rou gui is cultivated both in the Wuyi mountains and in Anxi county. Like most oolongs, the Anxi rou gui oolongs tend to have a greener character, whereas the rou gui produced in Wuyi tends to be darker. Wuyi rou gui tends to be more well-known and widely-available than Anxi rou gui. A number of sources claim that rou gui originated in the Wuyi mountains; however, Jing Tea Shop claims that this varietal originated in Anxi and was later taken to Wuyi.[1]
