Big Red Robe, or Da Hong Pao, is a highly esteemed oolong tea with roots deeply embedded in Chinese tea culture. This legendary tea hails from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province, where it is cultivated amidst the stunning rocky cliffs.
Big Red Robe is celebrated for its distinctive, complex flavor profile, which unfolds in layers of roasted nuts, orchid-like floral notes, and a subtle mineral undertone. The leaves of this tea are carefully hand-picked and traditionally roasted, resulting in a rich and full-bodied infusion that is both invigorating and soothing.
Revered as a "rock tea" for its cultivation in the mineral-rich Wuyi soil, Big Red Robe is not just a beverage; it's a journey into the heart of Chinese tea craftsmanship, offering a truly memorable and authentic tea-drinking experience.
