Da Hong Pao is called the “emperor” of tea and the finest of “The Famous
Four” Wuyi Oolong teas. All the Da Hong Pao we drink now is a cultivated
version of the wild tea bushes from Wuyi Mountain that were once reserved for the emperor.
Like many tea, the name of Da Hong Pao is based on a story. It says that a high rank officer had got sick and no medicine could help him to recover, and one day a monk from Wuyi Mountain knocked his door and offered him some tea leafs from Wuyi Mountain as medicine. Incredibility, after he drank the tea he rapidly recovered from his sickness. And the high rank officer was so thankful to the monk that he rewarded this monk with a Big Red Robe (in Chinese Da Hong Pao).
Our online tea shop is offering you one of the best Da Hong Pao, it has a long lasting aftertaste with a flowery and fruity aroma.
We recommend using Kung Fu (gong Fu) brewing for this very best tea. Fill the Yixing teapot half full with tea leaves and steep in hot water at 1/2 minute for the first and second brewing then gradually increase steeping time for following brewing. You can infuse the same tea leaf several times and with this Da Hong Pao you can infused it up to 7 times!
