Da Hong Pao oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and specially Wuyi rock tea taste and fragrance. All Wuyi rock Oolong tea has its unique rock tea taste and fragrance, which the other Oolong teas do not possess the characteristics. The rock tea taste and fragrance can be described in the four aspects: aroma, cleanness, sweetness and animation.

Unlike Tie Guan Yin, which focus on the high fragrance, Wuyi rock tea concentrates on the taste. Its fragrance is deep and heave one, which can feel after drinking the tea soup.

Though our this tea is from Ban Yan areas, its rock fragrance and taste is still quite strong, and highlights with fresh, soft tea soup, clean flower aroma and strong sweetness.
