Big Red Robe | Da Hong Pao

DESCRIPTION

One of the finest oolongs…

Da Hong Pao – also known as Big Red Robe is one of the finest Oolong teas from China.  It is a rare tea which makes it incredibly special.  Moreover, it is grown within the UNESCO world heritage site of the Wuyi Mountains – within the Wuyishan reserve.  You will also hear Da Hong Pao referred to as ‘rock tea’ because of the high mountain rock beneath the soil.  This enriches the soil in a unique way.

The liquor of Big Red Robe is a dark amber/ oaky colour, yet the flavour profile boasts a light character with a slightly sweet and smooth taste.  The rounded, earthy notes balance this brew to perfection.

This tea can be re-infused multiple times!

Handy brewing tools:

If you’re new to loose leaf tea, fear not.  We have 100% plastic-free self-fill teabags with drawstrings for you to create your brew.

We think the best way to enjoy it is with an Infuser Mug or an Infuser Teapot like our colourful Eteaket teapots, (or the amazing cast iron Japanese Style teapots).  Other handy tools include the Perfect Tea Measure Spoon and a Tea Timer.

To brew it in a more traditional manner, try our Traditional Gaiwan Tea Tasting Set.

HOW WE LIKE IT
To Brew: Use 1 tsp of tea per cup.
For the best infusion, when your kettle has boiled, pour boiling water over the leaves and then immediately pour away. This is called 'washing the leaves'.
Then, with the water from the kettle slightly off the boil, pour into your mug to brew your tea at 95°C for 3-5 minutes.
Remove the leaves and enjoy. This tea can be re-infused multiple times - so keep the leaves when you remove them to enjoy at least 5 more cups!
INGREDIENTS
100% Oolong tea.
ORIGIN

Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province, China.
