Product Description

Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea Da Hong Pao "Big Red Robe" Medium-Roasted is flavorful.

Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and especially the Wuyi rock tea taste and fragrance. All Wuyi rock Oolong teas have a unique rock tea taste and fragrance; the other Oolong teas do not possess this characteristic. The rock tea taste and fragrance can be described in the four aspects: aroma, cleanness, sweetness and animation. Unlike Tie Guan Yin teas, which focus on the high fragrance, Wuyi rock tea concentrates on the taste. Its fragrance is a deep and heavey one which you can feel after drinking the tea soup. Though this tea is harvested from the Ban Yan growing regions, its rock fragrance and taste is still quite strong, and you will note highlights with fresh, soft tea liquid, clean flower aroma and strong sweetness.
