Da Hong Pao Oolong tea USDA Certified Organic- It is one of the most famous oolong teas in the world. Da Hong Pao is an oolong tea from the WuYi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. It grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountain boulders, which endow it with the highly prized ‘yan yun’ or mineral ‘rock taste.’ It is one of 5 ‘Rock Teas’, meaning the teas are grown in more rocky areas making the mineral content in the soil much denser.
This is what gives the 5 rock teas their signature flavors. This very full bodied tea has a roasted flavor with a very particular sweetness to it and is reminiscent of baked goods or molasses. Our premium-grade Wuyi Da Hong Pao offers rich aromas of roasted vegetables, sweet honey and wet stones. The liquor is equally intriguing, colored as warm peach brandy. Delicately spicy, robust and rounded texture, with pit-fruit flavors and subtle ripe peach juiciness. A truly thought-provoking cup.
