From Dragon Tea House

This nonpareil Da Hong Pao is is from Zheng Yan areas in Wuyishan, which is famous for its charming & delighted strong rock tea fragrance and taste. The leaves are dark, and there is a classic deep chocolate aroma, with the slightest hint of tropical fruit and spice. The tea is heavily roasted with classic Wuyi flavour. The leaves are very large and long and they brew up to a toasty, nutty taste that evokes strains of chestnut and chocolate. Itcomes with sweet taste and a good combination with the hint of smoke. Its strong rock tea taste and high floral aroma are most well-received by the tea drinkers who seek for the pure Da Hong Pao.

A very balanced, good-tasting tea. The liquor is medium amber, and there’s a pleasing touch of smokiness and a “dark oolong” flavor. If you steep at the recommended temperature (around 200˚F), you can definitely detect “rock tea” in the aftertaste. Not cheap, but this is the real thing. Easily the best DHP I’ve tasted.
