From China Mei Cha

An oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains with a legendary heritage.

Legend has it that a Qing dynasty emperor visited the Jiulong Cave of Wuyi Mountain and was so entranced with the tea that he gave his red imperial robes and commanded that they be placed at the roots of the tea plant, hence the name “Great Red Robe” (大红袍) tea.

nice flavor—light and smoky, complex but not overwhelming—toasty notes at the end. I usually don’t drink such strong tea (like to stick to greens, whites, and tisanes) but thought I would try something different this morning and I enjoyed it. Tea Master Zhao gave this to me so I could become familiar with good Da Hong Pao.
