From Yunnan Colorful

Da Hong Pao is one of China’s famous oolong teas, and is one of the world’s greats. It’s known in English as, “Big Red Robe,” named when a Chinese emperor was so overwhelmed by the tea that he gave his robes of office to an underling and commanded that they be placed at the roots of the tree that produced this great thing he was tasting. It’s been cultivated primarily in the WuYi mountains forever, and the volcanic rocky soil produces the tea’s very unique flavor.

Forgive me, I’m not in the mood for this. Just writing a note and rating down because it’s a gifted sample although I don’t know where it came from anymore.

It’s a nice dark oolong. A bit toasted, quite wood-y and with a hint of cocoa. Very nice.

Okay, that’s it. I’m going to go hibernate somewhere with my book.

Uniquity

I would love to be hibernating with a book…I’d rather not work anymore : )

First bought this 5 years ago at Mount Wu Yi, Fujian on a trip. It was love at first cup. This tea is strong roasty flavour that is best described as resembling japanese genmaicha.
There is a lot of thought in the packaging though. The box I bought had many smaller boxes of the tea within. Each smaller box contained 2 plastic packets of vacuum packed tea. This makes the tea convenient to carry a around on the go.
