Master Chen’s tea garden, Inner area of Wu Yi Mountain, Fujian Province, China
HARVEST TIME AND PROCESSING
Harvested in May 2016. 3-4 leaves are picked together and partially oxidised and gently roasted with medium heat for twice.
Da Hong Pao is one of the four mains varietals in Wu Yi Mountains, also is the most famous oolongs in China. Our Da Hong Pao is growing in Hui Yuan Keng 慧苑 which is one of the top three Zheng Yan regions (or inner area) of Wu Yi Mountains. Hui Yuan Keng is also one the original home to countless tea cultivars because of its unique microclimate created by the numerus of mountain cliff, peaks and caves providing perfect environment for trees to grow.
Deep, sweet, warm aroma with a hint of woody and dark chocolate notes. The remarkably well-balanced taste reveals scents of wide flowers, moss that grows on the rocks with the layered mineral character due to growing in the rocky soil of the Wuyi Mountains. Finishing with bittersweet aftertaste and silky mouth feel.
