Product Description

Ban Yan Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea Da Hong Pao "Big Red Robe" 2014 Spring Medium-Roasted tea is exceptional.

Da Hong Pao oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and special Wuyi rock tea taste and fragrance. All Wuyi rock Oolong teas have this unique rock tea taste and fragrance; other Oolong teas do not possess these unique characteristics. The rock tea taste and fragrance can be described by four characteristics: aroma, cleanness, sweetness and animation. Unlike Tie Guan Yin teas, which focus on the high fragrance, Wuyi rock teas concentrate on the taste. The taste is a deep and heavy one which you can feel after drinking the tea soup while the fragrance provides a background highlight. Though this tea is from the Ban Yan growing region, its rock fragrance and taste is still quite strong; it presents wonderful highlights of fresh, soft tea soup with clean flower aroma and strong sweetness.

All of our Wuyi rock tea is baked extremely slowly using charcoal and only arrives in the market in August of every year. So the new Wuyi rock tea may still has a little bit charcoal taste during early infusions. As the tea breathes, the charcoal aroma will disappear slowly and the tea's original taste and aroma will come out. So, if you would like to forego the charcoal taste, let your tea air out for at least 24 hours.
