Da Hong Pao

Da Hong Pao is the most famous “Yancha” or “Rock Oolong” and is perhaps the finest oolong from China.

The Da Hong Pao cultivar traces its routes to a UNESCO world heritage site where tea bushes grow on a rocky cliff next to the “Nine Dragon Cave” in the mineral-rich Wuyi mountain soil. This original plant has stood for thousands of years and can still be visited today. Da Hong Pao is grown from clones of the original Da Hong Pao trees in the area close to the famous Cave in the Wuyi Mountains of North Fujian.

This Da Hong Pao is an incredibly sensuous example with dark brown twisted leaves melting into a dark, earthy complex liquor that mystifies with its strong floral notes.
