Description

Da Hung Pao (Big Red Robe), also known as the Emperor of Tea, is a lightly fermented oolong. It originated from wild rare tea plants that were found growing on the cliff of Wuyi Mountain. Da Hung Pao yields a golden yellow liquid that produces a pleasant long lasting aftertaste. This tea is also renowned for its nourishing medicinal properties. It is said that a high-ranking official of the king fell sick and the imperial doctors could not treat him. Monks from the Fujian province heard of this and brought tea leaves from the Wuyi Mountain. The tea restored the officer to health. As a measure of his thanks he gave his red robe to the monks since the monks did not want any money. This is how the tea earned the name Da Hung Pao, meaning big red robe.
