Big Red Robe


The Chinese have made rock tea or yancha in the Wuyi Mountains of northwestern Fujian Province for over 150 years. This tea is a descendant of the 3 original tea plants that made Big Red Robe (aka Da Hong Pao). Thus it is a darker twisted oolong. This tea is lighter than our Wuyi Da Hong Pao.
