This is Zheng Yan Da Hong Pao.  this Wuyi tea comes from the legendary Da Hong Pao cultivar, grown at the Wuyi Mountains in the North-West of Fujian Province, China. Da Hong Pao is one of the most celebrated teas in China. It 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 breathtaking prices.

Hui Yuan Keng 慧苑坑 is one of the most highly prized tea gardens in the Wuyi protected nature reserve.

The dark twisted leaves of our Da Hong Pao yield a clear red infusion with a warm woody aroma. The remarkably well balanced taste reveals floral and woody notes with the signature mineral character that comes from growing in the rocky soil of the Wuyi Mountains. This is a full bodied and robust tea, yet it feels smooth on the palate and has no bitterness. The complex sweet and smoky aftertaste is another unique quality of Da Hong Pao. This is a popular connoisseur's choice for Gong-Fu tea brewing due to its layered and complex nature.
