Our Review
A tea with a history. This tea is located near a monastery located in the Wuyisan area of NW Fujian Province. Like most oolongs in this Wuyisan area, Da Hong Pao is twisted (not rolled into a ball) and it is finished in the traditional manner by charcoal firing. The legend is that tea provided support to an imperial official and he put his red coat on the tea plants that helped him.
Dry Leaves These leaves are long and twisted, the color is dark brown.
Liquor Dark, clear caramel.
Aroma The initial aroma is that of charcoal, but underneath is the sweetness of stone fruits like grilled peaches.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body A medium to heavy bodied oolong. This tea may be brewed multiple times.
Flavors Like peach compote with a bit of dark molasses, and then some astringency from the charcoal firing.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 205° F
