From Wild Tea Qi

Description
Wild-crafted at over 4,500 feet high in the rich volcanic soils of the Wuyi Mountains, our Da Hong Pao has tender, fat, thick, long-shape smooth brownish green tea leaves, with dark red edges. The taste of Da Hong Pao is unmatched. You feel it mellow, smooth, round and somewhat complicated with various tastes blended.You’ll be further overwhelmed by its fragrance! Rich, lingering fully around your nose and mouth, a special “rock aroma”!.

Cool gray morning, what better time for a Big Red Robe. This was a sample from my order I placed last month. Used a 130ml gaiwan and 5gm of tea. The dry leaf has hints of dried fig, tobacco and chocolate. Wet leaf abounds with scents of the tobacco and fragrant sweet flowers. After the recommended steep of 30 seconds the flavors are already in full gear. Caramel, fig, date, flowers all with a backbone of rocky goodness. Subsequent steeps showed a general waning of flavors and aromas, this is the first time I have had a tea where the first steep was the best. I think I need to do a concentrated BRR tasting with someone who is an expert to help dissect the teas nuances. I really do like these Wu Yi teas as every sip has something to say.

I love roasted Wuyi oolongs! Yummy! The layers of flavor always amaze me. Maybe today I’ll finally have some time to relax with one of them! :)
