From Ten Ren

Ten Tea’s Scarlet Robe Oolong, also known as Da Hong Pao, consists of fine oolong harvested from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, China. The name originates from an emperor who was cured by this tea and hung his scarlet robes to commemorate the tea bush. The steeped tea has a dark orange hue, slightly roasted aroma with floral undertones, a slightly roasted flavor, and a smooth aftertaste.

My overall impression of the DHP is that the roasted-wood flavor of the tea, is always present in the tea, although it diminishes over time, it is quite pleasant, and drinks very smoothly, from start to finish, with minimal astringency. While immediately pleasing with how smooth it is, it rewards the attentive drinker with sweeter floral flavors in the background.

I found Scarlet Robe to be a really enjoyable Wuyi oolong tea. The roast is subtle but strong enough to be present in the tea while not being overpowering. I am not sure if I would agree with the vendor’s claims of floral undertones but I would say it is an enjoyable lighter roast with a lighter than most smooth sweet taste that is enjoyable. When brewed gongfu I got 6 wonderful infusions out of it and probably could have gotten out a few more if I wanted to but I didn’t bother because the taste was starting to decline, still it is significant as I was able to get more infusions out of this one than I do from most of the other Wuyi oolongs that I’ve had before.
