Wuyi Ensemble, known as Da Hong Pao or Wuyi rock tea, is a roasted oolong tea from the Wuyi mountains in Fujian province, China. The high fire treatment gives Wuyi oolong its specific smoky and minerally character. This is a beautifully balanced and complex tea with a deep, yet faint, ripe fruitiness in the background. The flavor is slightly honey-floral and nutty, with hints of white sesame, cinnamon and sweetened burdock root. There is a lingering sweet caramel aftertaste due to the high fire roasting technique. Wuyi Ensemble oolong is warming and satisfying. Being a good digestive tea it goes well with food or sweets. It is perfect for multiple infusions so you can tease out many layers of intriguing flavor. Steep at 195°F for 3-5 minutes

      I was a little offput by how earthy the smell was, but the taste was a solid, subtle flavor

      The floral notes in Wuyi Ensemble are clearly noticeable, but no so pronounced that they detract from the earth, smoke, and spice notes (a problem I have with some oolongs). This is a smooth, nicely balanced tea - I enjoyed it.

      My favorite chinese oolong that ive tried. This is excellent and the minerally flavor is delicious and makes me want to eat cookies with this. Perfect for unwinding after a meal!

      I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I can definitely taste the mineral flavour, although the scent reminds me of Genmai Cha. Smooth, easy going, a nice plain tea.

      One of the best plain black teas I've ever had. It's a shame that it's so expensive, but that's not gonna stop me.

      This was a good cup of tea. I steeped it three times and enjoyed each cup.

      Very minerally taste, with hints of smoke. Like, imagine camping by a mountain stream, and that's what this tastes like.

      I really couldn't appreciate the flavor of this tea. I couldn't taste any of the flavors described.

    • 

      A very earthy and nutty cup of tea. Not sweet but rather smoky and rich. On later steeping more of the floral comes out in the tea and the smokiness wanes.

      A very earthy tasting tea! I didn’t taste any of the caramel that the description says, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
