Da Hong Pao Oolong Tea

A legendary oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains. Sweet, toasted, with floral notes and a touch of cocoa


$3.16

Our Da Hong Pao tea is an excellent example of the famous and extraordinary rock oolong from Wuyi area. It has a warm and engaging aroma and a well-balanced flavour with fruity, floral and toasted notes, a touch of cocoa and a rich and long-lasting aftertaste.

This oolong tea, which is totally handmade, is cultivated in steep, fertile terrain that is rich in minerals. The high quality tea leaves are withered, then bruised to break their cell walls and induce oxidation, then panned, rolled and dried, and finally roasted in small quantities over charcoal. It costs a higher price, but it is worth it, for the flavour profile is exceptionally rewarding.

Da Hong Pao is often called the “king of oolong rock teas” and is considered to be one of the best and most expensive teas in the world. Its unique flavour is due to the special environment and growing conditions (terroir) in the Wuyi Mountain area which gives the tea a very prominent rocky and mineral taste, called in Chinese “yanyun” (the rhyme of the rock). The Wuyi Mountains are situated in the north of Fujian province, a really impressive and stunning place declared a World Heritage site in 1999.
