Da Hong Pao 1997
Here’s an aged version of this great Chinese wulong. The rinsing of its long leaves releases potent aromatic scents oscillating between spicy (musk), fruity and floral aspects. Its liquor, lively and full, deploys its sweet (black chocolate) and mineral flavors supported by notes of undergrowth and pipe tobacco. A complex and comforting tea perfect for cold damp weather.
Quantity of leaf / 250ml of water 1½ tea spoon
