wuyi da hong pao
Da Hong Pao is an oolong tea from the WuYi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. It grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountain boulders, which endow it with the highly prized 'yan yun' or mineral 'rock taste.' Our premium-grade Wuyi Da Hong Pao offers rich aromas of roasted vegetables, sweet honey, and wet stones. The liquor is equally intriguing, colored as warm peach brandy. Delicately spicy, robust and rounded texture, with pit-fruit flavors and subtle ripe peach juiciness. A truly thought-provoking cup. Harvest: Summer 2022.

Oolong Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 195° for 3 minutes.

Legends suggest that Da Hong Pao was named for the big red robe used to drape and protect the four special bushes that originally provided this particular Wuyi Mountain tea that miraculously cured the ill and led scholars to great triumph. We prefer to ignore the legends and concentrate on this tea's dark leaves, smoky character, and almost indefinable complexity on the palate: mineral, nuttiness, sesame, cinnamon. and burdock root. Its high-fire roasting process elicits an aftertaste redolent with sugar, like soft caramels melting in your mouth. Subsequent infusions reveal layer upon layer of pure satisfaction, a perfect digestif.
