Da Hong Pao is an oolong tea from the WuYi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. It grows defiantly in the gaps of the mountain boulders, which endow it with the highly prized 'yan yun' or mineral 'rock taste.' Our premium-grade Wuyi Da Hong Pao offers rich aromas of roasted vegetables, sweet honey and wet stones. The liquor is equally intriguing, colored as warm peach brandy. Delicately spicy, robust and rounded texture, with pit-fruit flavors and subtle ripe peach juiciness. A truly thought-provoking cup. Steep at 212°F for 4 minutes

      I'm new to oolongs, but this is my favourite so far! Well worth every penny. So rich and flavourful, a nice mineral taste without being weird. Made me go wow when I first tried it, and understand why people are so passionate about oolongs.

      It was a good cup, but not quite what I was expecting. It's almost a little to "smoky" flavored for me. I like it but there are many others I likr bettet.

      This tea was fine, but not overly special or worth the extra cost in my opinion. It was very light in flavor, and a little more grassy than I prefer. It also did not steep well a second time, almost no flavor at all.
