Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea – Da Hong Pao

From: $18.98

Weight: 1.7 oz

Da Hong Pao is known as the “King of Tea” and is one of four famous bush varietals. The plucking season begins after Guyu in mid-April, when shoots of three or four open leaves are picked by hand.

Our Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) has dark, strong, twisted dry leaves that possess a complex, fruity, and toasty flavor. When brewed, the liquor is clear and bright orange. 

This oolong tea tastes clean and mellow with a rich aroma of orchid and a note of nectarine. The sweet aftertaste is long-lasting with no off-aromas. It is famous for its essence of rocks (“Yan Yun,” or “cliff rhyme”).

Origin: Wuyishan City, Fujian Province, China

Brewing Tips:

  • 194°F ~ 212°F (90°C ~ 100°C) 
  • It is recommended to brew Da Hong Pao in a porcelain pot, Gaiwan, or Zisha pot.


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.
