Product Description

Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea Tie Luo Han "Iron Buddha" High-Roasted Imperial Zhengyan will delight you in every way.

Da Hong Pao oolong tea is famous for its unique floral fragrance and a particular Wuyi rock tea taste. Of the six mother Da Hong Pao tea trees in Jiu Long Ke, Wuyi Shan city, there are actually three tea tree cultivars: Que She, Bei Dou, Qi Dan. In 2006, the Wuyishan Government stipulated that it was forbidden to pick tea from the 6 mother trees. Hence, all the Da Hong Pao in the market is actually created from cuttings from the mother trees which are called pure Da Hong Pao. There are also some blended teas such as Rou Gui, Shui Xian and several other Wuyi teas that are blended and commonly referred to as commodity Da Hong Pao.

Tie Luo Han (Iron Buddha), is one of the oldest tea varieties growing in Wuyi mountain, which can be dated back to Song Dynasty (1000 years ago).

This Tie Luo Han is high-roasted from the Zhengyan growing areas. For the early infusions, the charcoal baking aroma is obvious and is quite enjoyable and sought after by many dedicated tea-drinkers. Like many other Wuyi rock teas, it has a very strong mineral taste and mouthfeel as well as a very pleasing floral aroma and long-lasting flavor.

All of our Wuyi rock teas are baked extremely slowly by charcoal and only arrive on the market in August of every year. So the new Wuyi rock tea still has a little bit charcoal taste in the early infusions. As the tea breathes in the open air, the charcoal aroma will disappear slowly and the tea's original taste and aroma will come out.
