Master Wu’s tea garden, Wu Yi Mountain, Fujian Province, China
HARVEST TIME AND PROCESSING
Harvested in May 2018.
4 leaves are picked together, partially oxidised and then gently roasted over high heat. The roasting is done twice.
Known as the Big Red Robe, this Wuyi tea comes from the legendary Da Hong Pao cultivar, grown in the Wuyi Mountains that are located in the North-West of Fujian Province, China. Da Hong Pao is one of the most celebrated teas in China and is much sought after in China as well as abroad; small batches of the three-remaining original Da Hong Pao plants from the Ming dynasty can be seen sold at auctions for breath-taking prices.
A clear red-orange infusion gives a warm and woody aroma. Our Da Hong Pao has a very well-balanced taste with floral and woody notes and a nice mineral character. This is a full bodied and robust tea, yet it feels smooth on the palate with a slight bitter edge.
