From What-Cha

A most unusual Wuyi oolong possessing a thick and smooth taste of roasted plums with a sweet finish.

A very unusual tea which is produced from a natural purple varietal mutation from Da Hong Pao, hence it’s name Zi Hong Pao (Zi translates as purple).

Zi Hong Pao is also a rather rare tea, as less than 1 hectare of land in total is producing it.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth and thick texture
- Roasted plum taste with a sweet lingering finish

8Apr: 205F, 5gish, 150ml gaiwan
Dry leaf smells mineral and sharp.
10s- mineral, sweet. 15s- super fruity kind? I don’t know. Sweet and it lingers from sip to sip. 20s- sweet, fruity, tiny hint of roast. Flavors from 20s steep continued as I increased the time. Ended up doing 12 steeps with the tea. Leaves kept giving flavor, good all the way through. Very, very good. 94
