From DuvalTea

Da Hung Pao typically balances a pleasing smokiness and an appetizing green flavor. It’s hard not to love the enticing combination of flavors, it’s fine by itself, but works harmoniously with light food. When opening the pouch this tea gives off an aroma that announces delights to come. The taste and the aroma are followed by the beautiful glowing color of the liquid. The cup I had was brownish with red tones. Lovely to look at. This fruity tea is a sweet, almost candy-like flavor. Makes a phenomenal iced tea!

MissB has problems with oolongs, so she kindly shared a few samples with me. This is one of them.

Dry, it smells intensely of orange peel. Steeped, the ORANGE backs off a bit and I can smell a honey sweetness in the base tea.

This is amazing. The tea is really complex. There’s layers of spice, hay, honey, and lastly and (interestingly) most delicately, orange. It has a touch of a smoky/toasty note, but the barest touch. Just enough to bring more depth.

I am REALLY enjoying this. I steeped slightly cooler than recommended as is my preference, and will steep this as many times as I possibly can tonight. NGL, it is a rather expensive tea. Still, I could see buying it in the future. It is just that good.

I will update the note as things change in future steeps!

I’m on the third steep now, for 3 minutes. So. Amazing. Sweet, toasty but not toasted, not quite thick but not thin either. A little more woody.

Fourth steep at 200F for 5 minutes is stronger again. Still nice and sweet, woody toasty flavours in the background.

Thanks so much!

So glad you’re enjoying it! Definitely more expensive than most teas, although he does bill many of them of being able to re-steep 8-10+ times.


I saw that. This one apparently 6 times? I’m going to have to increase the time again for my 4th steep. I wonder what would happen if I just left it overnight? :)
