Imperial Red (Da Hong Pao)
Each year, our supplier in the Wu Yi Mountains provides us with a new version of this tea. The leaves are very dark, sometimes small and flat, at times thick and curled. Yet be assured, it will be consistent in its flavors of earthy cocoa and light smoke with a rich, red cup color. Steep at water temperature of 185 – 195 degrees for 2 – 3 minutes.
