Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) (Premium Grade)
Alternative names: Big Red Robe, Wu Yi tea, Wu Yi rock tea
Da Hong Pao belongs to Oolong/Wulong tea family. It is named after its appearance – big red stretched tea leaves. It is one of the top ten Chinese teas and was once portrayed as ‘Royal tea’ as a result of its low production and rich flavor. Because it is produced in Wu Yi area’s rocky mountains, it therefore also belongs to a special group of teas called Wu Yi rock Tea. Its brew is lightly reddish brown in color. Terms used to describe its favor include fragrant, roasted, nutty and tenderly sweet, followed by a lingering after taste. A nice cup of Da Hong Pao is pure indulgence.
There have been some recent claims that the Wu Yi tea has super fat burning power. We believe that it is evident that teas (especially green, Oolong/Wulong and Pu-erh tea) have slimming effects. The ‘ultimate fat burner’ claim is however irresponsibly exaggerated.
