Da Hong Pao Oolong is the king of the Famous Five Rock Teas in the Wu Yi Mountain of China. Rich, styptic and at the same time incredibly soft tea. It forces you to stop and think.
After a few small sips, a pleasant floral fragrance remains in your mouth, lingering for a good few minutes. It dissolves in the mouth and then returns again and again as aftertaste. Not many teas can do this.
Close your eyes, hold the cup near your lips, gently inhale the aroma of Da Hong Pao, and you will see the monasteries and Buddhist monks in red robes, as its origins come from there…
