About Oolong Da Hong Pao

Da Hong Pao, also known as "Big Red Robe," is a highly revered and sought-after oolong tea that originated from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of China. It is one of the famous "rock teas" (yancha) grown in the Wuyi Mountain area, known for its unique terroir and complex flavour profile.

Da Hong Pao is traditionally grown in the Wuyi Mountain area of Fujian, China. The specific tea bushes used to produce Da Hong Pao are often located in the Zhengyan, or "original rock," area of the Wuyi Mountains, known for its rocky terrain and unique mineral-rich soil.

Da Hong Pao is a partially oxidized oolong tea, falling somewhere between green and black tea in terms of oxidation. The leaves undergo a meticulous process that includes withering, tossing, oxidation, fixation, rolling, and drying. The artful oxidation process contributes to its unique flavour.

The leaves of Da Hong Pao are dark, twisted, and robust, often with red or brown edges. The appearance is a result of the oxidation and roasting process.

Da Hong Pao is known for its rich, full-bodied flavor with notes of mineral, roasted nuts, cocoa, and a unique rocky or "yan yun" (rock rhyme) quality. The tea has a long-lasting aftertaste and can be steeped multiple times, with each infusion revealing different layers of flavor.

The aroma of Da Hong Pao is complex, with a mix of roasted, mineral, and floral notes. The roasted character comes from the traditional firing process, which can include charcoal roasting.

The brewed liquor of Da Hong Pao can range from amber to dark brown, depending on factors such as oxidation level and roasting.

Oolong teas, including Da Hong Pao, contain moderate levels of caffeine. The caffeine content is higher than that of green tea but lower than black tea.

Da Hong Pao is not only valued for its flavor but also carries cultural and historical significance. It has been traditionally associated with stories of emperors and scholars, and authentic Da Hong Pao is often considered a luxury tea.
