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!
