Wuyi Rock Oolong is a general name for the oolong tea produced in the Wuyi Mountain region in Fujian province, the best-known of the oolong teas.
Among the many different tea plant varietals grown in Wuyi, four are the most important. The big four famous varietals include Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe), Tie Luo Han (Iron Monk Warrior), Shui Jin Gui (Golden Water Tortoise), and Bai Ji Guan (White Cockscomb). Da Hong Pao is often called the King of Tea.
Over the last 400 years, cuttings from the original six mother bushes have been cultivated, and high-quality Da Hong Pao oolongs are made each year by master teamakers using leaves from the new generations of Da Hong Pao bushes.
