This is my favorite anytime tea. It is pleasantly nutty and slightly roasted in flavor, hot or cold. As an experiment, I put some leaves in a cup of water in the fridge and let it cold brew overnight. The next day I had an amazing iced tea and none of the flavors/tasting notes had been compromised. Da Hong Bao is always harmonious to the palate— neither bitter or astringent, but rather a tad sweet with a clean, smooth aftertaste. I think it pairs well with any food, expanding and rounding out flavors. Also a great after dinner cup of tea!

Hi! I got into drinking tea a couple of years ago and now it is my beverage of choice any time of the day, any time of the year! I’m always on the lookout for new teas to try especially after discovering how much better looseleaf brewed tea tastes vs. tea bags. I’m partial to oolongs but send any recommendations my way! Excited to be a part of this community!
