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.
Probably will not buy again. It is good, but not my favor.
Best Da Hong Pao I’ve ever had so far!
My favorite. Well balanced taste with great aroma
Quality of the tea is out of my expectations! Very nice tea!
Highly recommended! It has such a smooth taste and a long-lasting aroma.
I really enjoyed this tea and it was one of the better Da Hong Pao’s I have consumed. The dry aroma was quite roasted and dark, having an almost char-like note sticking around as well. As I brewed the tea, some sweeter tones came through with an almost acidic feeling on the nose. The first thing I noticed about this Da Hong Pao was a specific note of slightly roasted, like a wet wood almost but also a specific cinnamon note. I haven’t been able to find a Da Hong Pao with that characteristic cinnamon note before, so I am happy I have this one!
Solid Dahongpao! There are so many different types of Rock tea. It takes a lot of drinking experience to tell which ones are good. This one is a really solid one if you want to learn what a decent Dahongpao tastes like. Very hard to find this level of quality tea outside of China!
