One taste of this full-bodied oolong and you can visualize the rocky cliffs where it is grown. The infusion produces a deep amber liquor with a surprising complexity and a hint of cinnamon.

Da Hong Pao means Big Red Robe. The origin of the name is that a Ming dynasty dignitary claimed that the curative powers of the tea brought about his recovery from illness. In thanks, he draped his scarlet robe of office over the bushes and bowed to them. Unique to Wuyishan, this oolong varietal is one of the most celebrated Yancha or rock teas. The original Da Hong Pao Bushes still survive hanging to the cliffs in the Wuyi mountains. The ancient plants are hundreds of years old and their offspring grow there and almost no place else.
