Da Hong Pao 'Big Red Robe'

£2.75

Perhaps the most famous of all rock oolongs, Da Hong Pao or ‘Big Red Robe’. Grown on the rocky slopes of the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian, China, now a designated UN World Heritage Site, this tea is dark and rich with distinctive mineral notes known as petrichor. Expect a dry tea with notes of dark fruits, a hint of chocolate and a subtly floral finish. Named after the Red Robes of a Ming Dynasty Emporer, Da Hong Pao is steeped in legend and the original 4 mother bushes are highly protected with tea from these bushes fetching in excess of a $1million per kg at auction.

Beautiful taste

I wanted to try oolong and this one is brilliant: 100% recommend! I like this during the morning normally as a gentle wake up.

Extremely pleasant Oolong

This is my current favourite Oolong tea; It has a nice full-bodied flavour, while also being somewhat light as far as most oolong teas go. This is enjoyable at any time of the day, though I feel like it's a very fitting lunch time tea. Will definitely be ordering more.
