Story Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) is the most famous of all the Oolongs.
According to a legend, a scholar fell ill on-route to Beijing to
take the Imperial Examination. A monk cured him using the tea
leaves plucked from the Six Tea Bushes. When he returned later,
having passed his Examination with flying colors, he offered a Red
Robe (Da Hong Pao) as a gesture of gratitude. I have found genuine
Da Hong Pao to be the most difficult Wuyi tea to source. Our Da
Hong Pao is handpicked at a staggering height of over 4,500 feet
high. What gives this Da Hong Pao such flavor, such incredible
energy, such vitality is that it grows out of the nutrient rich
volcanic soil of the Wuyi Mountains. It is the surrounding
environment that can make or break a tea and the environment of
this tea is truly magical. Picture ancient, volcanic rock face
mountains, flowing emerald green rivers, rich bamboo and pine
forests and the mystical fog that engulfs the mountains every
morning. It really packs a punch. Just to add a cherry on the top,
this is a one-of-a-kind Wild Da Hong Pao! Only 30 kilograms of this
are harvested a year. This is a Wild Tea Qi exclusive!
Description:Wild-crafted at over 4,500 feet high in the rich volcanic soils of
the Wuyi Mountains, our Da Hong Pao has tender, fat, thick,
long-shape smooth brownish green tea leaves, with dark red edges.
The taste of Da Hong Pao is unmatched. You feel it mellow, smooth,
round and somewhat complicated with various tastes blended.You'll
be further overwhelmed by its fragrance! Rich, lingering fully
around your nose and mouth, a special "rock aroma"!
