Da Hong Pao
Da Hong Pao

Origin:  China
Estate:  Fujian Province
Quick Description:  Big Red Robe Oolong

Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) Oolong is one of the famous Rock Teas of Fujian Province, so called due to the mystical, rocky terrain in the Wuyi Mountains where the tea plants grow. Full bodied & smooth, this medium-oxidized Spring tea begins with floral notes & deepens into a fruity sweetness which lingers in the throat & on the back of one's tongue. The large, hand-twisted leaves of deep greenish-brown steep to beautiful golden liquor. Although not charcoal finished as are the most costly of Rock Teas, this Da Hong Pao will not disappoint. Be sure to prepare several cups, each will reveal surprising new flavors.
