“I brewed this in an easy gaiwan, as so to taste the tea as is. The smell of the dry leaves are of dark red fruits. Once rinsed they become much more present, as aromas of peaches and plums are very...” Read full tasting note
“Really solid Da Hong Pao. Miles better than the cheaper “Light Roast Da Hong Pao” they offer at Yunnan Sourcing. It tastes rich, roasty and smooth. Will do a proper tasting note sometime soon.” Read full tasting note


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
