I bought this dark roast oolong along with the light roast oolong I wrote about yesterday. It starts out smooth on the tongue and finishes on a dry, slightly bitter (but still pleasant) note. It is a solid oolong, but when it comes time to restock, I think I will stick with the light roast version.
Big Red Robe Da Hong Pao
Big Red Robe, a myth, a legend!
This Da Hong Pao falls into the category of an excellent fermented Red Oolong that was created by cloning Original Da Hong Pao. The flavor is strong but smooth. Full of body and flavor. 40% oxidization.
This is a higher grade than we sold previously, so give this a try. I think you’ll like it!
Harvest time: Fall 2009
Origin: Wu Yi Mountain of Fujian
