Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) is an extremely rare and special tea, perhaps the finest oolong in China. Grown from a unique and ancient cultivar in the Wuyishan reserve, a UNESCO world heritage site in the Wuyi Mountains. The terroir is extremely special, and this Da Hong Pao is also known as a "rock tea", because of the high mountain rock below the soil that enriches the leaves.
This tea is darker in colour and deeper in flavour than our other Tieguanyin Oolongs, with notes of nutty chocolate, and a rounded, earthy, yet sweet aroma. You can infuse this tea at least three times. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
Complements. Best paired with semi-hard cheeses, honey cake, crepes, hummus with pita bread, fresh fruit
